QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
- The practice of removing species from their habitat endangers wild populations.
- Now most zoo animals come from captive breeding programs. Most zoos maintain breeding stocks.
- This also allows us to replenish wild populations of endangered species.
ANALYSIS: We have information about where zoo animals come from, and only about that. That eliminates A and E.
C and D are wrong because they misunderstand how the word “most” is used. Only most new animals come from breeding stocks.
And only “most” of them. Some new animals may still be wild.
- Who knows? The stimulus doesn’t mention the public.
- CORRECT. Otherwise, how could zoo breeding programs replenish wild populations of endangered species?
- Unfortunately the argument doesn’t support this claim. It only points out that most new zoo animals come from breeding programs. There may be some new animals that come from the wild.
- Hard to say. It depends when the breeding programs started. It could be most animals alive in zoos are from the era when wild animals were captured.
- Just like A we have no information on the purpose of zoos.
