QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
- Officials want to eliminate pike, which could harm the local ecosystem.
- Officials won’t introduce a predator or drain the lake.
- Poison has already been tried. It made residents mad.
ANALYSIS: Stick to what you know. Some of the answers could be true, but only answer C is supported by the stimulus.
It makes sense. If the poison had eliminated the pike, then the officials wouldn’t need to consider other options.
- We have no idea why officials ruled out draining the lake. Maybe it would have annoyed residents but caused no economic harm.
- We don’t know. It’s possible officials tried poison on another occasion.
- CORRECT. This is almost certainly true. Otherwise officials wouldn’t still be considering options to eliminate the pike.
- We can’t read the officials’ minds. We have no idea what they were thinking four years ago.
- This could explain why officials want to eliminate the pike. But it doesn’t have to be true. Maybe the officials just want to protect the ecosystem from damage.
