Alice: Quotas on automobile imports to the United States should be eliminated. Then domestic producers would have to compete directly with Japanese manufacturers and would be forced to produce higher-quality cars. Such competition would be good for consumers.
David: You fail to realize, Alice, that quotas on automobile imports are pervasive worldwide. Since German, Britain, and France have quotas, so should the United States.
Which one of the following most accurately characterizes David‟s response to Alice‟s statement?
(A) David falsely accuses Alice of contradicting herself.
(B) David unfairly directs his argument against Alice personally.
(C) David uncovers a hidden assumption underlying Alice‟s position.
(D) David takes a position that is similar to the one Alice has taken.
(E) David fails to address the reasons Alice cites in favour of her conclusion

David is clearly missing the point that removing quotas will help consumers finally.

E is a clean choice here.Rest all are POE.

while Alice cares of whether importing quotas on auto. car should be eliminated in order to improve the benefit of customers, Davis cares only of whether america should have quota because all the world has quotas

Thus, their points/opinions dont match....

(B) David unfairly directs his argument against Alice personally. Both in bold make the choice incorrect.

Straight E.

David (no doubt a logical reasoning vegetarian) avoids the meat of Alice's argument, videlicet: Tariffs will make local manufacturers up their product quality.

Cheers,
Der alte Fritz.
