How are we supposed to cross out C for being wrong?
My thought process:
-Marthus's argument: capacity will not increase more rapidly than population.
-Marthus's argument was wrong.
-But the agricultural advances that allowed the capacity to increase more rapidly than human population will compromise biological diversity, and thus will support Malthus's prediction in the future.
It seems like the correct answer choice is saying that 'Marthus's argument' in sentence 1 is the same thing as 'Malthus's prediction' in sentence 3, hence answer choice D which says it seems wrong but will be correct in future.
I thought those two were different, and that (although it first seems not) Marthus's argument is actually supporting Marthus's prediction; hence chose C.
I want help to understand how I was supposed to think and not fall for questions like this. How could I correctly cross out C?
