@jingjingxiao11111@gmail,com, happy to help!

The question asks us to resolve the apparent conflict between Kendrick's statements. This refers to the conflict between his idea that governments are justified in trying to prevent cigarettes from being advertised because they promote unhealthy habits and his idea that cigarette advertisements should remain legal because other ads that encourage unhealthy lifestyles are legal.

(B) is incorrect. While it may explain the difference between cigarettes and fatty foods, it does not resolve the conflict between governments being justified in preventing cigarette ads and governments keeping cigarette ads legal.

(D) is correct. It resolves the conflict by noting that governments are justified in preventing cigarette ads through financial disincentives, while still keeping the practice legal.

Does that make sense? Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
