Please refer to the attachment.
Could you please explain what point A is saying? In particular, if you could explain what “objections to the manner of use” means in that context.

Just re-attached - not sure why it didn't work the first time.

I guess it's talking about the article discussing the detail of how pesticides are used (sprayed, types of pesticides). Whereas the article discussies the effects of the use of pesticides in general and why they're used. There is no/little discussion about how/the manner of their use.

By objections, I assume it means "ideas"? or "views?

Objections about harmful wildlife and people health - first couple of lines.

Why do they use the word "confused", as it seems pretty clear to me :l

Just a way of expressing the question, I guess.

Oh actually, they mentioned "confused objections" to make people lose focus but the main idea here is that the argument doesn't discuss the "manner of use of pesticides" hence why A is wrong. It does mention "sprayed" but there are no discussion or "objections" about it.

The text really only discusses the use. I don't think it's there for you to lose focus.

By manner of use, it is referring to "heavy use". Point A is saying instead of disagreeing with heavy use it is disagreeing with the use of pesticides as a whole.

For B) "The argument contradicts itself" -- Is this wrong because damage to the environment and maximising yield are not opposing ideas and hence they are not contradicting each other.

Opposing ideas would be to say pesticides damage the env and then claim it is also good for the env. Since maximising yield is not necessarily good for the environment, it cannot be a contradiction.
