FROM the point of view of an evriromentalist,which is probably the most significant argument against offshore drilling for oil?
a)coal is a preferrable soure for oil.
b)oil corporations are falsely advertiseing an oil shortage in order to expand thier drilling operations.
c)the possible harm to the balance of nature is more important than a gain in energy.
d)the potential oil to be found is not worth the capital investment needed to extract it.
e)there is little need to take such natural resource from the ocean waters.
Most argue that there is danger from leaking oil or a busted pipeline in offshore rigs.
but that does not refer to the answer above which above could most likely be the answer?
BobPursley pointed out that there's a danger from leaking oil or a broken pipeline. Which of your five choices means about the same?
Please reread the choices you have. One of them directly correlates to what Bobpursley has posted.
i think the answer is b am i correct?
"b" is not correct. Please reread the choices. Which one correlates to what Bobpursley posted??
is e correct?
Now you're guessing.

Danger to what or whom??????
o okay so is it possible for the answer to be c?
Anything is possible. It's POSSIBLE that your teacher might have a secret answer "z" that (s)he keeps in his/her back pocket. On the day you turn in the homework, it's POSSIBLE that the teacher might jump out and giggle while simultaneously crying and say, "HAHAHAH! There's a better answer. Answer Z." Then it will be read as the teacher runs down the hallway on his hands to the office to turn in a letter of resignation he wrote with crayons on a coctail napkin the night before. Anything is possible.
However, since it still seems like you're guessing, I'm going to say that YES. The answer is c. :)
