Advertisement: In today’s world, you make a statement about the person you are by the car you own. The message of the SKX Mach-5 is unambiguous: Its owner is Dynamic, Aggressive, and Successful. Shouldn’t you own an SKX Mach-5?

If the claims made in the advertisement are true, which one of the following must also be true on the basis of them?

(A) Anyone who is dynamic and aggressive is also successful.
(B) Anyone who is not both dynamic and successful would misrepresent himself or herself by being the owner of an SKX Mach-5.
(C) People who buy the SKX Mach-5 are usually more aggressive than people who buy other cars.
(D) No car other than the SKX Mach-5 announces that its owner is successful.
(E) Almost no one would fail to recognize the kind of person who would choose to own an SKX Mach-5.

My answer is E:

If the message of owning the SKX-Mach 5 is unambiguous, then it is clear to everyone the characteristics of the person who owns that particular car, the owner is Dynamic, Aggressive, and Successful. And E says that.

Re: CR: SKX Mach-5 car [#permalink] New post 30 May 2005, 16:20
B.

(A) is irrlavant.
(B) yes. it is and it is only about SKX car. Anyone who is not both dynamic and successful would misrepresent himself or herself by being the owner of an SKX Mach-5.
(C) we do know about other car owners. out of scope.
(D) we do know about other cars what they represent. again out of scope.
(E) we do know about all people. how can we say something about somebody who never knew about an SKX Mach-5. again out of scope.

owner of SKX => owner is dynamic, aggressive, and successful..
reverse, ~dynamic... => owner should not be an owner of SKX.. implying B, that if he is, he is misrepresenting himself
E may not be true. People may recognize person if he owns a car, but not the person who 'would" choose to own

(A) Anyone who is dynamic and aggressive is also successful.
- Not supported for by the passage. you might have three qualities, but own a junk boat and not a skx mach-5

(B) Anyone who is not both dynamic and successful would misrepresent himself or herself by being the owner of an SKX Mach-5.
- true. someone could have got lucky at the lottery and gotten himself/herself a skx mach-5. But this does not mean that the person is dynamic and successful. So this statement is true when it says a person is mispresenting himself/herself by owning a skx mach-5

(C) People who buy the SKX Mach-5 are usually more aggressive than people who buy other cars.
- not true. we do not have a qualitative comparison in the given argument.

(D) No car other than the SKX Mach-5 announces that its owner is successful.
- not true. the arguement only says the owner is associated with three qualities. it does not say only the skx mach-5 has success as one of the qualities associated with a person.

(E) Almost no one would fail to recognize the kind of person who would choose to own an SKX Mach-5.
- Wouldn't go with this. E talks about "who would choose to own". This means that the person does not own a skx mach-5, and it could be due to various reasons (affordability etc)

B it is.
