Let's look at (A) and (D).
Recall we're looking for the answer choice that highlights what
Enrique and Cynthia disagree over. The main disagreement in the
stimulus is over the course of action that the transit authority
should take. Enrique states that the transit authority should continue
operating through the year without cutting service or raising fares.
Cynthia states that the transit authority shouldn't do this, so this
is where they disagree.
(D) says, "the federal government is willing to provide
additional funding to the transit authority now"
We know that the federal government isn't providing funding to the
transit authority presently. Neither of the speakers appears to
dispute this information, so if anything, Enrique and Cynthia would
probably agree that the federal government isn't currently willing to
provide extra funds. Thus, we can get rid of this choice.
(A) says, "the transit authority should continue operating without
cutting service or increasing fares until it has exhausted its funds"
(A) looks great. Based on the stimulus, we know that Enrique would say
yes, the transit authority should continue operating without cutting
service or increasing fares until it's exhausted its funds. Cynthia
would definitely disagree with this.
Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions!
