Dr. Godfrey: Now that high school students are allowed to work more than 15 hours per week at part-time jobs, those who actually do so show less interest in school and get lower grades thin those who do not work as many hours at part-time jobs. Obviously, working long hours at part-time jobs during the school year contributes to the academic problems that many of our high school students experience.
Dr. Nash: That's not so. Many of our high school students set out to earn as much money as they can simply to compensate for their lack of academic success.15. Dr. Nash responds to Dr. Godfrey's argument by doing which one of the following?
(A) attempting to downplay the seriousness of the problems facing academically troubled high school students
(B) offering an alternative interpretation of the evidence cited by Dr. Godfrey
(C) questioning the accuracy of the evidence on which Dr. Godfrey bases his conclusion
(D) proposing that the schools are not at fault for the academic problems facing many high school students
(E) raising the possibility that there is no relationship between academic problems among high school students and part-time employment
16. The answer to which one of the following would be the most helpful in determining whether the conclusion that Dr. Godfrey draws could be logically defended against Dr. Nash's counterargument?
(A) whether people who have had academic problems in high school are ultimately less successful in their careers than people who have not had such problems
(B) whether students are allowed to spend more than 15 hours per week at school-sponsored nonacademic extracurricular activities such as team sports or clubs
(C) whether the students who work more than 15 hours per week and have academic problems had such problems before they began to work that many hours
(D) whether employers and high school students typically obey all the laws that regulate the conditions under which young people may legally be employed
(E) whether high school students who have after-school jobs continue to work at those jobs after graduating from high school
