99. Concetta: Franchot was a great writer because she was ahead of her time in understanding that industrialization was taking an unconscionable toll on the family structure of the working class.
Alicia: Franchot was not a great writer. The mark of a great writer is the ability to move people with the power of the written word, not the ability to be among the first to grasp a social issue. Besides, the social consequences of industrialization were widely understood in Franchot’s day.
In her disagreement with Concetta, Alicia does which one of the following?
(A) accepts Concetta’s criterion and then adds evidence to Concetta’s case
(B) discredits Concetta’s evidence and then generalizes from new evidence
(C) rejects Concetta’s criterion and then disputes a specific claim
(D) disputes Concetta’s conclusion and then presents facts in support of an alternative criterion
(E) attacks one of Concetta’s claims and then criticizes the structure of her argument

Between, B and C, I will go with B as it sounds like she is making generalization by saying that "The mark of a great writer is the ability to move people with the power of the written word, not the ability to be ..."

I am not good with these sort of questions... So I might be wrong :oops:

C should be it!

Alicia definitely rejects Concetta's criterion and ofcourse disputes the claim that Franchot was the among the first to know abt the affects of industrialization

D says she presents facts..Could you say that she is presenting any fact/data?

""....The mark of a great writer is the ability to move people with the power of the written word, not the ability to be among the first to grasp a social issue. ...""

She is expressing her own opinion about the subject.So, that is why I eliminated D.

1 min 30s and D.

"disputes Concetta’s conclusion ": Franchot was not a great writer
"presents facts in support of an alternative criterion" : The mark of a great writer is the ability to move people with the power of the written word, not the ability to be among the first to grasp a social issue.

The fact that the social consequences of industrialization were widely understood in Franchot’s day attacks Concetta's evidence

Here, she is 'refuting' Concetta’s criterion

Now, she is disputing the specific claim.

Should I say any more??

Got it C. She just plainly rejects the conclusion, there is no dispute.
