A – Wrong
It does not provide any proof of the effects that restorative justice has on offenders that have already received a prison sentence.
B – Wrong
This statement, in contrast, weakens the argument. The question states that offenders should be subjected to restorative justice instead of prison whilst this statement states that offenders should be subjected to natural justice.
C – Wrong
The question states that offender should meet victims whilst the statement states that victims do not want to meet their offenders. The statement is contradicting the question and hence cannot strengthen it.
D – Wrong
Completely irrelevant to the question and the passage. There is no mention of tax-payers or their money in the passage or the question.
E – Correct
This statement provides proof that issuing community service has reduced reoffending rates by 20%. Hence, this is correct instead of A.
