I just received an announcement of the Seventh Annual World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences, which will take place in Rome, Italy, August 30-September 3, 2009.
Take a look at the announcement. And then answer the following question:
(A) is a great event because it will help animals
(B) is a great excuse for executives from large animal welfare organizations to use donated money to spend time in Rome during a particularly nice time of the year
(C) provides compelling evidence of the symbiotic relationship that has developed between institutional animal users and animal welfare corporations
(D) provides great public-relations benefits for institutional animal users, who can claim that they are working with HSUS, RSPCA, ASPCA, etc.
(E) (B), (C), (D) are all correct answers.
For the correct answer, consult your common sense.
