CC strengthens the argument in the passage that forest fires in the long run are beneficial to the overall ecology of the forest. Whereas the other options undermine the argument in the passage. DStatement D, if true, as it supports the theory stated in the passage best. Whereas the other statements are either not appropriate or they undermine the statement inferred from the given premises. DRead the three conditions properly. A ¬ C , B ¬ D, E not in the 5th place. The answer should be BDEAC. B - before D, A before C and E in the 3rd place. By the process of elimination, the answer is clearly D. DIf we work out the order, keeping the conditions in mind, there are two possibilities, B A C E D, A C B E D or ACEBD. The other choices are partially possible. But choice D, with D in the fifth position is a must under the said conditions as E must not be in the fifth. CIf we try to arrange the order, keeping the conditions in mind, we will arrive at the order BDAEC. What remains constant is C. Hence choice C is perfect.
