Mehran on June 7, 2017Hi @knoxygirl, thanks for your question. Answer choice (C) can be eliminated because the proposed recommendation would not "worsen the situation it was intended to improve." The applicable "situation" is the fact that contingency fee charges "generally exceed regular fees." (Lines 9-10.) Although the author explains why the recommendation would be burdensome for lawyers (Lines 30-40) and unfairly restrict access to contingency fee arrangements for prospective clients (Lines 41-48), there is no textual support for the claim that the recommendation would "worsen the situation"--i.e., make contingency fee charges even more excessive relative to regular fees.
