Unless the residents of Glen Hills band together, the proposal to rezone that city will be approved. If it is, the city will be able to build the water and sewer systems that developers need in order to construct apartment houses there. These buildings would attract new residents, and the increased population would probably result in overcrowded schools and would certainly result in roads so congested that new roads would be built. Neither new roads nor additional schools could be built without substantial tax increases for the residents of Glen Hills. Ultimately this growth might even destroy the rural atmosphere that makes Glen Hills so attractive. Which one of the following can be properly concluded from the passage? (A) If the citizens of Glen Hills band together, developers will not build apartment houses. (B) If developers build apartment houses in Glen Hills, there will be substantial tax increases for the residents of Glen Hills. (C) If the rezoning proposal does not pass, the rural atmosphere in Glen Hills will not be lost. (D) If developers do not build apartment houses in Glen Hills, the taxes of the residents of Glen Hills will not increase substantially. (E) If developers do not build apartment houses in Glen Hills, the schools of Glen Hills will not be overcrowded and roads will not be congested. Hint: Read right to mark it right..(will/may).

Schools may/may not be required --- but the roads will require substantial tax increase for Glenn Hill residents...

I marked it as C--> C) If the rezoning proposal does not pass, the rural atmosphere in Glen Hills will not be lost. considering below sentence from argument: Ultimately this growth might even destroy the rural atmosphere that makes Glen Hills so attractive. I dint notice 'might' in the sentence. A ' might/well' can do lot of damage.. However B is the correct answer and learnt that options should be read very carefully. Thanks.

E does not seem to be correct answer. Reasons: If developers do not build apartment houses in Glen Hills, the schools of Glen Hills will not be overcrowded and roads will not be congested. The passage mentions that "These buildings would attract new residents, and the increased population would probably result in overcrowded schools and would certainly result in roads so congested that new roads would be built." You can not infer from this that if the developers do not build houses there will not be any other factor for the overcrowded schools and congestion on roads. There could be many other reasons for over crowded and congestions. You can certainly infer that if the developer build houses, the schools may get overcrowded and roads may get congested.
