Firebrakes- Document 3

Consider each of the following statements. Does the information in the three sources support the inference as stated?

Yes

No

In the Forest Preserve Board’s original proposal, 30 square kilometers of forest would be cleared for firebreaks.

Comparing the two proposals, the amount of forest cut down for the ten firebreaks in the Fire Chief’s proposal is greater than the amount of forest cut down for the six firebreaks in the original Forest Preserve Board’s proposal, but not twice as great.

In case of the occurrence of an actual fire that destroys one stand of trees, the total area of land lost (firebreaks and fire damage) in the Fire Chief’s proposal would be less than 10% of the total land area of the forest.
