Which statement is best supported in the letter? The people who live near the proposed station could not afford to shop at the mall. Light rail is a good idea to reduce automobile traffic. A light-rail station will remove needed low-priced stores.

    Letter to the Editor Here's a letter to the editor in a local newspaper: I live near the corner of Hyacinth and 54th Street, where the city plans to build a new light-rail station. I believe that light rail is a good idea to reduce automobile traffic in our city, but I oppose the destruction of stores that is planned in order to build a train station at this corner. The shops in this area are not elegant, but they provide discount items for people in the neighborhood who need them. I have many friends who buy clothes for themselves and their children at the Clothing Re-Use Store located there, and they would be unable to live within their limited incomes without this store. These shops also include an auto parts outlet, a fabric and sewing notions store, a drugstore, and a miscellaneous discount retail store. These stores serve an essential role for people who need easy access to these items. Even if the train is finished and the station is built, these people will not be able to ride the train to a mall in the suburbs to shop there. They could not afford to shop at the mall, and the cost of the train ride would be high for them, also.

    most definitely the last option. The first option has nothing to do with the point the author is trying to make and the second one isn't as clear.
