A vs. D

Hi LSAT Max! When I completed this passage for the diagnostic exam, I went with answer choice D. However when I went over it a second time, I went with A. I was wondering if someone could explain why D can be eliminated because I'm not 100% sure about the logic I used to get A when I gave this question a second chance. Can we safely eliminate D because there's no support in the passage to show that donors will be unwilling to accept new methods of delivering aid? Many thanks in advance!

@Julie & @alva,

That's correct. The author argues that the success of the proposal to provide for long-term needs depends on how donors will respond (lines 45-47), saying that "historically, donors ..have been most likely to respond only in the immediate aftermath of a crisis" (lines 47-50). The author then tells us that the donors that incorporate dialogue with members of affected communities into their relief plans could foster strategies to provide for long-term needs as well (lines 54-59), but he never implies that donors are unlikely to be receptive to long term needs or accepting new methods of delivering aid.

Does this make sense?

Let me know if you have any further questions.
