Editorial: An arrest made by a Midville police officer is provisional until the officer has taken the suspect to the police station and the watch commander has officially approved the arrest. Such approval is denied if the commander judges that the evidence on which the provisional arrest is based is insufficient. A government efficiency expert has found that almost all provisional arrests meet standards for adequacy of evidence that watch commanders enforce. The expert therefore recommends that the watch commander’s approval should no longer be required since the officers’ time spent obtaining approval is largely wasted. This recommendation should be rejected as dangerous, however, since there is no assurance that the watch commanders’ standards will continue to be observed once approval is no longer required.

In the editorial, the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

A. The first is a recommendation made by the editorial; the second acknowledges a potential objection against that recommendation.
B. The first is a proposal against which the editorial is directed; the second is a judgment reached by the editorial concerning that proposal.
C. The first provides evidence in support of a recommendation that the editorial supports; the second is the conclusion reached by the editorial.
D. The first is a position that the editorial challenges; the second is a judgment that was made in support of that challenged position.
E. The first is a recommendation that the editorial questions; the second provides evidence against that recommendation.

B for me.

The first is a position that the editorial challenges;

The second is a judgment that was made in support of that challenged position.

Lets look at all options : ( Consider First boldface)
A:- not possible, as the editorial is not recomending the proposal. ( Incorrect)

B:- The first is a position that the editorial challenges ( Hold It )

C:- There is no evidence provided by the editoral( Incorrect )

D: The first is a position that the editorial challenges (Hold It )

E:- The first is a recommendation that the editorial questions; ( Hold It)

Now lets consider the second bold face ( Option , B, D, E only)

B:- The second is a judgment that was made in support of that challenged position. ( Hold it)

D:- the second is a judgment that was made in support of that challenged position. ( incorrect , as there is no judgement made in support of the challeneged proposal, rather the editorial argues against the proposal made)

E:- the second provides evidence against that recommendation ( Incorrect, as no evidence is provided to support the argument )

Hence only B complies

Many thanks bha, you help me out why A is wrong!

Just one more question, What do you think that "recommendation" and "proposal" the same thing or different thing? Thanks!

A is wrong because the proposal is recommended by the expert ; not the editorial.

Incase of Option E ( Boldface 1 ), they are the same

Oh, here is my approach leading my choice to A.

I see Boldface1 as "recommendation", so immediately I rule out B, C, D. A and E remains, but E is not evidence so E out. only A remains! Ok, watch out from now on!

Thanks!
