21. A society in which there are many crimes, such as thefts and murders, should not be called "lawless" That is an abuse of the meaning of words. As a suffix "less "means "without" so "lawless" means "without laws." However, a society that has no laws has no crimes, because no laws can be broken. A lawless society would, therefore, be a crimeless society. So what some have termed a lawless society should actually be called "crimeful".

If the statements in the passage are true, which one of the following must also be true?

(A) A society that has laws has crimes.
(B) A society that has no crimes has no laws.
(C) A society that has many laws has many crimes.
(D) A society that has some crimes has some laws.
(E) A society that has many crimes has many

Hmmm, I would choose B.

A, C, and D are more or less the same. With E I don't catch an good reasoning, because the sentence did not finish: A society that has many crimes has many ???

Please correct me if I am wrong.

If in (E) you meant to write "A society that has many crimes has many laws", then I would say the correct answer is (A). All other answers don't hold.

With everyone voting for A and B, I am going to be an odd man out.
I prefer D.

1. Lawless=> No laws => No crimes
2. A crime happens when a law is broken.
3. Many crimes = crimeful

No laws=>No crimes does not mean No Crimes=>No laws

(A) A society that has laws has crimes.
Not necessarilly. There may be laws, but the guys may be too good to not have any crime in that community.
(B) A society that has no crimes has no laws.
Not necessarilly. There may be laws, but the guys may be too good to not have any crime in that community.
(C) A society that has many laws has many crimes.
Many laws and good guys may make it less crimes.
(D) A society that has some crimes has some laws.
If there is a crime, there has to be some law broken. Hence there has got to some law.
(E) A society that has many crimes has many laws.
Less laws, but to many bad guys make it may crimes.

D. no laws => no crimes : true
negated : (some) crimes => (some) laws : true

I would go for D. More than any logic stufff, I think D is more 'indisputable' type than other choices.
