Need explanation

I originally thought the answer was B because people that live near the concert hall wouldn't want the annoying construction to take place but I understand why D makes sense too. Could you please explain how to know it's D and not B?

Yes, B talks about the people who live close to the concert hall, but the prompt doesn't address them. To tie them in, it would have to be something along the lines of "the city concert goers defer to the opinions of those who live close to the hall, who don't want it torn down," or something else that ties in the rest of the concert goers. D works because it suggests that they get to keep the hall while still getting a better concert venue.

@kaiplanet, the issue with B is that the survey was just about concertgoers; it doesn't matter what the people who live nearby think, so we can get rid of this choice.
