flowing by eliminating some bogus answer choices... We know the author isn't feeling super positive
about the "technology-only" strategy--to say the least.
In fact, he practically begs his colleagues, by asking them "not to fall for the temptation
of the administration's voluntary 'technology-only' strategy."
It's clear that choice (A) is out of the picture.
The author definitely disagrees, but he wouldn't be arguing so hard against this strategy if
there weren't some people out there who thought it was a good idea.
Therefore we can eliminate (B). The author doesn't think the administration's
strategy is reasonable, but the article implies that the administration does.
(E) can be crossed off the list. "Voluntary" sounds like the word "volunteer,"
which we know refers to a person who helps out of their own free will, or cooperates
willingly with something.
Since the thing we're talking about is called "voluntary 'technology-only' strategy,"
it's obvious that we can eliminate (C). The author doesn't mention any kind of situation
in which he would support the administration's policy, so (D) is the right answer.
We wonder if he'd do it for a Klondike Bar.
