The answer to which of the following would be most useful for evaluating the community activist’s reasoning? A. Have community activists in other towns successfully campaigned against the opening of a SaveAll store on the outskirts of their towns? B. Do a large percentage of the residents of Morganville currently do almost all of their shopping at stores in Morganville? 17 C.
