Aristotle CR.

Economic considerations colour every aspect of international dealings, and nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealings with the borrower. That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be world leader.
The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?
(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain
to be a world leader.
(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that
nation cannot be a world leader.
(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that
other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.

Prediction: A nation in debt cannot be a world leader.
Prediction: A nation that does not set the terms of an agreement with another nation cannot be a world leader.

A - Does not line up with predictions. The argument is in terms of the nation receiving the loan, not the lender. Out of scope.
B - Does not line up with predictions. The argument is in terms of the nation receiving the loan, not the lender. Key word 'certain' is too extreme.
C - Matches prediction 2. This is the correct answer.
D - Does not line up with predictions. Does not jive with author's conclusion. A nation in debt cannot be a world leader.
E - Does not line up with predictions. Out of scope.

Re-posting for further discussion.

Aristotle CR.

Economic considerations colour every aspect of international dealings, and nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealings with the borrower. That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be world leader.
The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?
(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain
to be a world leader.
(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that
nation cannot be a world leader.
(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that
other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.

Doubt: Why is D wrong? What exactly does C mean by another action set?

Hi Swaiti007

This question is about "supporter assumption".

The stimulus says:
Fact: Lender sets the terms of its dealings with a nation who wants to borrow money
Conclusion: a nation that borrows money from another nation cannot be world leader

You can see the flow: Lender sets terms of borrowing to A nation who wants to borrow ==> This nation cannot be World leader.
The assumption should connect "terms of borrowing" to "world leader".
The assumption should be: Any nation who has terms of borrowing that are set by another nation ==> cannot be world leader

C says: A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that nation cannot be a world leader.
It means: X, who has the terms of X's dealing with Y set by Y, cannot be a world leader
Hence, C is correct.

D is wrong because It's simply a reverse answer. D says: X is world leader because Y does not set terms of dealing with X. But the real assumption is: X has terms of dealing that are set by Y ==> X is not world leader.

Hope it helps.

Could you recommend the source of correct question. I don't think there's a problem with wording here. OA is C. You can refer to:

I was talking about OA C's wording: usage of "action" instead of "nation". Usage of action is nonsensical. With the explanations above it does gets clear. I was expecting someone would correct the original post and avoid the confusions.

Thanks for link though.

I was confused too between C and D. But C does fill the gap between premise and conclusion. C it is.

D is against the conclusion. It is mentioned if a nation A owes money to another nation B then A can't be a world leader. So even if the B does not set the terms still A owes B money , and A can't be the world leader. An assumption does not break the conclusion but a negation of the assumption does.

Correct me if I am wrong. :)

You can see the flow: Lender sets terms of borrowing to A nation who wants to borrow ==> This nation cannot be World leader.

The assumption should be: Any nation who has terms of borrowing that are set by another nation ==> cannot be world leader

It means: X, who has the terms of X's dealing with Y set by Y, cannot be a world leader
Hence, C is correct.

D is wrong because It's simply a reverse answer. D says: X is world leader because Y does not set terms of dealing with X. But the real assumption is: X has terms of dealing that are set by Y ==> X is not world leader.

H pqhai,

Thanks for the explanation...!! :)

Can you help me why B is incorrect??

Hi jaituteja,

B cannot be correct due to the use of word "Certain"
" A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain to be a world leader."
The stem says that the nation cannot be a world leader if the nation it borrows from sets the rules. But it doesn't say that the nation which sets the rule will certainly be a world leader.
Hope it helps

In C term action is a typo... following is a copy from other source.

Economic considerations colour every aspect of international dealings, and nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealings with the borrower. That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be world leader.
The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?
(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain to be a world leader.
(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another nation set by that nation cannot be a world leader.
(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.
