Hello @sprozes,

The author states his main point beginning on line 7, and then proceeds to offer examples. There are two great concerns regarding deforestation that the author finds to be exaggerated. The author simply argues that these beliefs be scrutinized carefully before policy decisions are made. This is best expressed by answer choice A. Answer choice B is a bit too strong. The author never states that attempts to regulate forest use are "ill-considered." Also, the author doesn't seem to believe that the danger to biodiversity from deforestation is "considerable."
