Paper Pollution

GMAT-7QEYVR

Statement A: Right Company concluded through their research that American paper usage contributes more pollution in one year than does the entire continent of Africa, for all types of African pollution. If we strive to reduce pollution, Americans must restrict their paper usage.

Statement B: The average American’s weekly paper consumption contributes to more pollution than twelve months’ worth of electronic correspondence, even if only half of the electronic correspondence is printed.

Statement B best supports Statement A by:

A

Reinforcing the statement that American paper consumption is a major contributor to pollution.

B

Further explaining the amount of pollution created through American paper usage.

C

Suggesting an alternative to paper consumption that does not create any pollution.

D

Pointing out a fallacy in the research strategies used between Right Company and African paper consumption.

E

Contradicting whether Statement A is in fact a true reason for pollution, as African paper consumption does not adequtely compare to American paper consumption.
