|A ban may not be necessary if there is an explosion in an animals population.|

|Firstly the statement isn't a statement at all; it's a question.
If pretending it is a statement, then the explanation cannot be deduced from it. There could be pestilent numbers of wild animals that are destroying the natural environment, for example.
Argument I is not strong because the earnings of the trappers are at best immaterial, or possibly a good if the trapping of wild animals is a good.
Argument II is strong because it is a statement that hunting and trapping are not effective appropriate a ban is innately wasteful.
Protecting the natural environment might be a very good thing to do. But in this context it's a rubbish example for a reasoning question.
