Question Stats:

53% (01:46) correct 46% (01:40) wrong based on 28 sessions
In 2001, the Peruvian government began requiring tourists to buy expensive permits to hike the remote Inca Trail, which goes to the ancient city of Machu Picchu. The total number of permits is strictly limited; in fact, only 500 people per day are now allowed to hike the Inca Trail, whereas before 2001, visitors numbered in the thousands. The Peruvian government argues that this permit program has successfully prevented deterioration of archaeological treasures along the Inca Trail.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument above?

(A) Since 2001, tourist guides along the Inca Trail have received 50% to 100% increases in take-home pay.
(B) Villages near Machu Picchu have experienced declines in income, as fewer tourists means fewer sales of craft goods and refreshments.
(C) Many of the funds from the sale of Inca Trail permits are used to staff a museum of Incan culture in Peru’s capital city, Lima, and to hire guards for archaeological sites without permit programs.
(D) Since 2001, Incan ruins similar to Machu Picchu but not on the Inca Trail have disintegrated at a significantly greater rate than those on the trail.
(E) The total number of tourists visiting Peru has risen substantially since 2001, even as the number of tourists hiking the Inca Trail has remained constant.

Kudos for R.A.E

To reinforce our argument we need a reason that shows the GOV plan will succeed. D says that a similar plan worked for an akin situation.

C instead, tells us that the funds are used to stuff museum and hire guards for some other goal BUT indeed does not tell us if the plan to reduce the deterioration could or not work.

Hope now is clear.

PS: sorry for my mismatch.
