In Minerville, membership at the private gyms is such that the gym operators are able to make modest profits. Minerville's population has insignificantly increased in the last five years and the projections indicate that the trend will continue. Yet, there are investors who are planning to double the number of gyms in Minerville in the next two years and are predicting higher profits for the gym operators.

Unlike the 1980s, the decade of the leveraged buyout, it seems that if business journals are to be believed, avoidance of debt will be the character of the 1990s.

Studies dealing with NDE (near death experiences) show that when people were convinced that they were going to die, they had an out of body experience, in which they were able to look upon themselves as if they were different from the body. They often narrated that they were taken into a dark tunnel and some claimed to have seen light at the end of it while some claimed that there was only darkness for as long as they could see. In all cases, they came back to the body-mind complex before they reached the end of the tunnel. Psychologists are now convinced that these experiences are influenced by the notions that these people had about death since people who thought had led a pious and good life generally claimed to see this light while people who thought that the darker forces ruled their lives said they saw only darkness.


Which of the following bolsters the conclusion presented in the argument?

Since 1970s, national parks in the US have had to double the numbers of signs waning visitors of possible hazards. The new signs have a dual purpose in that they also protect the parks from unnecessary litigation. In 1972, the National Parks Service in Yellowstone was forced to pay more than $87000 to the victim of a bear attack. This has prompted sarcastic remarks from some historians deriding the ruling while being supported by visitors who feel more secure.


Which of the following conclusions is best supported by the argument?

The Abacus Pulp Mill project in Consca has soured relations with neighboring Alpso over concerns it will cause environmental damage to a river they share. The Conscan Government recommended the project saying it complied with the country's environmental and social guidelines, after an independent study concluded the project was unlikely to cause long-term harm to the environment. The project represents huge economic benefits, jobs and development. The Abacus Pulp mill, which is the largest foreign investment in Consca's history, is expected to add more than 2 percentage points to Consca's GDP, increase exports by 8 percent and add around 12,000 jobs during the construction phase opportunities for the country. The Alpson Foreign Ministry did not agree saying that the project has grave environmental implications and that the river does not belong to Consca and any project sanctioned on it must be by an international body.


The answer to which one of the following questions would be least relevant in evaluating the credence of the Alpson Foreign Ministry's argument?
