Thanks for the question, and please accept our apologies for not getting back to you sooner. Let me see if I can help.
Question #2: In answering this question, it is vital to understand the position of the critics in this passage. Generally, the critics argue that when analyzing prosperity, one should take into account more than just monetary value but also things like environmental impact; and as a result, the critics support limitations on harvests. Answer (A) is incorrect because the critics don't deny a connection between wages/jobs and the harvest, they instead argue that even given those considerations, limitations on the harvest are appropriate. Answer (D) is incorrect because the critics are not arguing that the communities don't understand the monetary impact of harvest limitations...they are arguing that communities protest because they only take monetary considerations into account, which is not what this answer choice says. Finally, answer (C) is credited because it accurately reflects the critics' opinion that overall, harvest limitations would do more good than bad, which is simply answer choice (C) restated.
Hope all of that helps, and feel free to continue to reach out with any questions!
