Environmentalist: The use of snowmobiles in the vast park north of Milville create sun acceptable levels of air pollution and should be banned.

Milville business spokesperson: Snowmobiling brings many out-of-towners to Milville in winter months, to the great financial benefit of many local residents. So, economics dictate that we put up with the pollution.

Environmentalist: I disagree: A great many cross-country skiers are now kept from visiting Milville by the noise and pollution that snowmobiles generate.

Environmentalist responds to the business spokesperson by doing which of the following?

  • A Challenging an assumption that certain desirable outcome can derive from only one set of circumstances
  • B Challenging an assumption that certain desirable outcome is outweighed by negative aspects associated with producing that outcome
  • C Maintaining that the benefit that the spokesperson desires could be achieved in greater degree by a different means
  • D Claiming that the spokesperson is deliberately misrepresenting the environmentalist's position in order to be better able to attack it
  • E Denying that an effect that the spokesperson presents as having benefited a certain group of people actually benefited those people
