Which of the following best completes the passage below?
At a recent conference on environmental threats to the North Sea, most participating countries favored uniform controls on the quality of effluents, whether or not specific environmental damage could be attributed to a particular source of effluent. What must, of course, be shown, in order to avoid excessively restrictive controls, is that ___________.

(A) any uniform controls that are adopted are likely to be implemented without delay

(B) any substance to be made subject to controls can actually cause environmental damage

(C) the countries favoring uniform controls are those generating the largest quantities of effluents

(D) all of any given pollutant that is to be controlled actually reaches the North Sea at present

(E) environmental damage already inflicted on the North Sea is reversible

OA:B
I wonder why D is not the answer. In addition, B is something contradiction to the stimuli since the passage says whether or not specific environmental damage could be attributed to a particular cource of effluent

B is not contradicting.. the conference favored uniform controls on all effluents whether it is affects the environment or not. so ultimate goal is environment control by controlling effluents. If by doing so itself is a threat to the environment as stated in B it would be a better reason to avoid excessively restrictive controls.

i dont know how D could be the answer, it just states all the effluents that are to be controlled reaches the north sea. it is well stated in the premise of the argument itself, conference on environmental threats to the North Sea so it is well understood that the effluents to be controlled reaches north sea and they affect the environment , so in turn the conference is conducted... this is how i reason it out..
