Editorial: In rejecting the plan proposed by parliament to reform the electoral process, the president clearly acted in the best interests of the nation. Anyone who thinks otherwise should remember that the president made this decision knowing it would be met with fierce opposition at home and widespread disapproval abroad. All citizens who place the nation??s well-being above narrow partisan interests will applaud this courageous action.

The reasoning in the editorial is in error because

(A) it confused a quality that is merely desirable in a political leader with a quality that is essential to effective political decision-making

(B) it fails to distinguish between evidence concerning the courage required to make a certain decision and evidence concerning the wisdom of making that decision

(C) it ignores the likelihood that many citizens have no narrow partisan interest in the proposed

(D) it overlooks the possibility that there was strong opposition to the parliament??s plan among members of the president's among members of the president's own party

(E) it depends on the unwarranted assumption that any plan proposed by a parliament will necessarily serve only narrow partisan interests

The editorial says that this is a courageous decisions. But it doesn't give any evidence why this decision is good. courage is a very good leadership quality.
But not a very good decision making skill. decision should be rational rathar than emotional.

Option A points that out. (A) it confused a quality(courage) that is merely desirable in a political leader with a quality (not emotional)that is essential to effective political decision-making.


so A should be the answer.

B to me.

(B) it fails to distinguish between evidence concerning the courage required to make a certain decision and evidence concerning the wisdom of making that decision

author makes her argument by giving evidence about President's courage:
evidence concerning the courage -> president made this decision knowing blah blah

this does not give us enough evidence about wisdom of making this decision

A: We do not know, from the argument, that courage is essential in a political leader :)

One more vote for B.

The only evidence given in the passage about the President's courage --> President made this decision knowing blah blan ..........

which can be different from wisdom required to make decision.

it certainly took me more than 2 min even to understand this argument.

what is the source of this question ......and OA
