Question 3. Question : <21{1[1(01)01]}> Since Jessica’s participation in local politics increased  significantly after she joined her school’s political science club, it is clear that her involvement in that club led her to take an interest in politics.  The argument above is flawed because:   Student Answer:   it doesn’t say which political issues Jessica is interested in.     it states that the only purpose of the political science club is to spark an interest in politics.     it misuses the word “significantly.”     it’s possible that an interest in politics caused Jessica to join the  political science club.   Points Received: 1 of 1   Comments: Question 4. Question : <11{1[1(19)19]}> All sages provide both wisdom and inspiration. Since  Dasha’s speech contained wisdom and greatly inspired her audience,  Dasha is a sage.  Which one of the following points out the flaw in the argument above?   Student Answer:   Just because Dasha is a sage doesn’t mean that she is always wise  and inspirational.     Just because Dasha’s speech provided wisdom and inspiration  doesn’t mean that it provided more wisdom than inspiration.  

1. Question : <11{1[4(17)17]}> Mrs. Orlof teaches two history classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Yesterday she gave the same test to both classes. Anyone who failed the test must take a retest. Since a greater percentage of students who took the morning test failed the test than students who took the afternoon test, more of Orlof’s morning history students than afternoon history students will have to take the retest. The conclusion above is not necessarily valid because: Student Answer: more students in the morning class may have passed the test than failed the test. some students may have been absent from both classes. some of the students who passed the afternoon test may have received information about the test from morning students. more students may have taken the test in the afternoon than in the morning. Points Received: 1 of 1 Comments: Question 2. Question : <11{1[2(06)06]}> Reporter: A new campaign finance reform bill being considered by Congress would limit the amount of campaign contributions that political candidates can receive. However, a survey of candidates running for mayor, governor, and senate seats shows that not one of them favors the bill. Clearly, there is no desire among politicians to limit campaign contributions. Which one of the following points out the flaw in the reporter’s argument above? Student Answer: The reporter doesn’t indicate the amount that the new bill would limit campaign contributions. The evidence provided by the reporter suggests that most politicians are in favor of the new bill. The reporter wrongly assumes that no politician has ever supported a bill intended to limit campaign contributions. The views of candidates currently running for office do not necessarily represent the views of all politicians. Points Received: 1 of 1
