1.Editorialist: Drivers with a large number of demerit points who additionally have been convicted of a serious driving-relative offense should either be sentenced to jail or be forced to receive driver reeducation, since to do otherwise would be to allow a crime to go unpunished. Only if such drivers are likely to be made more responsible drivers should driver re-education be recommended for them. Unfortunately, it is always almost impossible to make drivers with a large number of demerit points more responsible drivers.

If the editorialistâ€™s statements are true, they provide the most support for which one of the following?

(A) Drivers with a large number of demerit points who have been convicted of a serious driving-related offense should be sent to jail.
(B) Driver re-education offers the best chance of making drivers with a large number of demerit points responsible drivers.
(C) Driver re-education is not a harsh enough punishment for anyone convicted of a serious driving-related offense who has also
(D) Driver re-education should not be recommended for those who have committed no serious
(E) Drivers with a larger number of demerit points but no conviction for a serious driving-related offense should receive driver re-education rather than jail

I would have chosen A as the answer.
Only two options:
i) either reeducation ii) jail

1)reeducation is suitable for drivers who have less number of demerits points.

So those who have large number of demerit points, it is impossible to re-educate them.

So the only option left for such drivers is Jail.
+1 A
Thats my opinion btw.

The two choices are the restatement.
Consider an example:
Captain Ricky will have to play either against India or against South Africa. He doesn't plays against India.

What can we infer from this?
that he will play against South Africa.

So is "he will play against South Africa" is a restatement?
It is just a profound statement, whereas in the original sentence there was 50% probability that he will play against South Africa.

I hope this example will make you through.

Thanks marcab...

But A seems to be restatement....

Drivers with a large number of demerit points who additionally have been convicted of a serious driving-relative offense should either be sentenced to jail or be forced to receive driver reeducation, since to do otherwise would be to allow a crime to go unpunished.

(A) Drivers with a large number of demerit points who have been convicted of a serious driving-related offense should be sent to jail.

Ya i understood B cannot be correct choice,,,
Since statement already says it is impossible for drivers with large demerit for re-education ....

can you brief y on A... ?

Hi M,

I agreed that we have only 2 options, and if one of them DOESN'T happen, it must be the remain. However, the premise stated that " Unfortunately, it is always almost impossible to make drivers with a large number of demerit points more responsible drivers. " ===> Maybe, it's just 99%, not 100%. Hence, is A too strong in this case particularly?

Thanks
