We, the Town Councilmen, encourage the use of hemp shopping bags instead of plastic bags to limit non-biodegradable garbage, we propose to ban the sale of any plastic bags for which there are hempen substitutes. The Council’s experts have argued that hempen bags are healthier for the environment, because most hemp varieties are completely biodegradable.

Which of the following, if true, suggests that the plan to ban sale of plastic bags is ill-suited to the Town Councilmen’s goal of improving the environment?

A)Though biodegradable plastic bags are also available, the members of the Town Council believe biodegradable hempen bags are environmentally friendlier.

B)A hemp mill in which most of the population of the town is employed plans to increase the production of biodegradable hempen bags.

C)After other cities ordered similar measures against sale of plastic bags, the environmental improvements were not discernible for the first several years.

D)Since most of population of the town prefer plastic bags to hempen bags for many uses, it is probable many will buy them in neighboring towns where plastic bags are available for sale

E)Products other than hemp pulp often go into the making of bags of hemp that are totally biodegradable.

I will provide official answer later on.

A) Irrelevant Distinction & No Tie to the conclusion [Does not affect the ban of plastic bags]

B&C) If anything, both answer choices strengthen the idea that the plan will eventually work/can be enacted

D) Correct If people simply purchase the plastic bags from neighboring towns and use them in their hometown, the plan will fail to preserve the environment.

E) Irrelevant Distinction

IMO D

Aristocrat

The new tools of the forum allow you to hide the OA, without messing up with the reasoning process. Please provide it so that the other users can test accuracy and time. The delay of the OA does not help anyone, it was an old tool to promote discussion.

Thanks
