Hi Powerscore Tutors,
I feel like another reason why (B) is wrong is the phrasing of it:
it says, "...would be offset by the reduction in air pollution emitted by electric vehicles".
The last part (reduction in air pollution emitted by electric vehicles) seems to mean that previously the air pollution emitted by electric vehicles was, say, level 10, but now the pollution from electric vehicles would only be, say, level 1.
But this is not what the stimulus says: it says that there will be a reduction in pollution when combustion engines vehicles (level 10 pollutant, say) get replaced with electric vehicles, not that the pollution emitted by (or the pollution from) electric vehicles itself would decrease (say, by some kind of technological advancement).
So, I believe (B) actually fails the Fact Test.
Please let me know whether I am correct on this line of thinking!
