Hi Karishma
Thanks for the post but i am bit confused about whether the question asks to strengthen or inferring.......
The question is most strongly support. So do we need to look for a supporter or inference......
A basic doubt.. PLs help me


A 'support' question can be an inference question or a strengthen question. You need to carefully observe the question to figure out what type of question it is.

The statements above, if true, most strongly support which of the following?
- Inference question - The statements given in the argument are supporting an option. The option must be the inference/conclusion.

Which of the following, if true, supports the argument given above?
- Strengthen question - We are looking for the option that supports the argument i.e. supports the conclusion. Here we already have the conclusion and we want to strengthen it.

A.To be placed into a certain classification, a fish must possess all the characteristics of that classification.
the argument mentions that there is no such eel with cartilaginous skeleton yet, the scientist are not sure whether the fish is an eel or shark. This means the scientist possibly may make this fish an exception as an eel with skeleton. The scientists may make exceptions.
thus, A is false.

B.Physical characteristics, such as skeletons, are scientists' primary means of classifying new species.
this is extreme. The scientist had the skeleton as basis but nowhere was it mentioned as their primary means. B is not given in the argument.

C.Some fish with cartilaginous skeletons are not sharks.
if the fish is classified as an eel, then this will be true but it has not been finalized yet. This is not confirmed in the stimulus.

D.The waters off Papua New Guinea are generally hospitable to eels.
because of its habitat the fish may be classified as eel... This is true...


E.A fish cannot be both a shark and an eel.
this may happen. This fish may be the first. For now it could be either eel or shark but nowhere did the argument confirmed that it cannot be both.

Answer: E
