Arguments - Verbal [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2004, 14:07
Some people have questioned why the Homeowners Association is supporting cooper's candidacy for mayor . But if the Association wants a mayor who will attarct more businesses to the town, cooper is the only candidate it could support.
so , since the Association is supporting cooper , it must have a goal of attracting more business to the town .

the reasoning in the argument is in error because

(A) the reasons the Homeowners Associatiob should want to attract more
businesses to the town are not given .

(B) the Homeowners association could be supporting coopers
candidacy for reasons unrelated to attracting businesses to the town

(c) other groups besides the Homeowners Association Could be supporting Cooper's candidacy .

(D) the Homeowners Association might discover that attracting more businesses to the town would not be in the best interest of its members .

(E) Cooper might not have all of the Skills that are needed by a mayor who wants to attract businesses to a town .

Looks to me that B is correct

If B is true -> Association wants a mayor who will not necessarily attarct more businesses to the town -> Some people have questioned why the Homeowners Association is supporting cooper's candidacy for mayor is legitimate

B.

Whenever a casue (A) - effect (B) is given and a conclusion is made, look out for
- if it's inverse is true (if actually B casued A)
- if there are other causes possible (C, D) for B to happen.

Sure...

A = Cause (Cooper is the only candidate who who will attarct more businesses to the town)
B = Effect (Association supporting cooper)

In this case, there may be other causes for B (for why Association is supporting cooper). May be he is also a supporter of abolishing house taxes and hence the assocoation supports him.
There is no clear proof for Association having a goal of attracting business to town.

Eg: Lawyer A advocates for B. B kills.
Wrong Conclusion: Lawyer A's goal is to save people who kill.
Actually, A may just be advocating B just because B gives more money.
