A particular phenomenon has been observed in the relationship between age and attire. The more formally a person is dressed, the older the average observer will gauge him or her to be. Thus, the average observer viewing two men, one wearing a business suit and the other wearing casual clothing, will generally estimate the man in the business suit to be five years older than the man wearing casual clothing.

The conclusion of the argument above would be more properly drawn if which of the following were true?


A. The age of the man wearing the business suit is greater than that of the man wearing casual clothing.

B. The older a man is, the more likely it is that he will wear a business suit.

C. The age of the man wearing the business suit is equal to the age of the man wearing casual clothing.

D. The average observer’s estimates of age are generally more accurate regarding casually dressed people than formally dressed people.

E. The average observer’s estimates of age are generally more accurate regarding formally dressed people than casually dressed people.

Easy C.
The observer sees the difference although both the men are of same age. Thus supporting the conclusion that observer estimates the formally dressed person to be older.
