Environmental organizations want to preserve the land - Q1 [#permalink] New post 23 Sep 2004, 05:40

Right guys where can I get concept of this type of CR and practice exercise as well?
Environmental organizations want to preserve the land surrounding the Wilgrinn Wilderness Area from residential development. They plan to do this by purchasing that land from the farmers who own it. That plan is ill-conceived: if the farmers did sell their land, they would sell it to the highest bidder, and developers would outbid any other bidders. On the other hand, these farmers will never actually sell any of the land, provided that farming it remains viable. But farming will not remain viable if the farms are left unmodernized, and most of the farmers lack the financial resources modernization requires. And that is exactly why a more sensible preservation strategy would be to assist the farmers to modernize their farms to the extent needed to maintain viability.

In the argument as a whole, the two boldface proportions play which of the following roles?

A. The first presents a goal that the argument rejects as ill-conceived; the second is evidence that is presented as grounds for that rejection.
B. The first presents a goal that the argument concludes cannot be attained; the second is a reason offered in support of that conclusion.
C. The first presents a goal that the argument concludes can be attained; the second is a judgment disputing that conclusion.
D. The first presents a goal, strategies for achieving which are being evaluated in the argument; the second is a judgment providing a basis for the argument's advocacy of a particular strategy.
E. The first presents a goal that the argument endorses; the second presents a situation that the argument contends must be changed if that goal is to be met in the foreseeable future.


Note: There is another question with the same stimulus but different boldfaced parts. Link for discussion on that question is as follows.

Re: CR: Set 27 Q 8 [#permalink] New post 15 Nov 2007, 17:12
The answer is D.

The first boldface is indeed the goal. Then the argument goes on to give a couple of strategies - buying up all the surronding land OR simply help the farmers modernize their farms.

From the strong language of the second boldface you can see that it is a judgement that supports the second strategy.

Basically the argument says the environmental organization is NOT going to be able to buy the farms outright. The developers will outbid them. The best way of encouraging the farmers to hold onto their farms is modernizing them. That will keep land away from the developers.

There is no need to change the situation of the farmers not selling their farms as mentioned in E.

I think D is the only viable option.

E is incorrect because there is no endorsement of a conclusion statement, which is what the first statement is.

C is incorrect because the second bold statement isn't a "judgement" to me.

B is incorrect because the argument can be successful, as you find out throughout the rest of the passage.

A is incorrect because the second bold sentence isn't the only rejection of the goal.

I think D is correct because the second bold sentence is a particular strategy, followed by basis to accomplish that strategy.

E

A, B and C can be easily eliminated.

Between D and E. Second statement provides some information based on which the enviormentist came to a conclusion that they need to change their strategy if they want to meet their goal. And D says tht.

Would go with D.

The first boldface presents a goal(Preservation of Wilgrinn Wilderness Area) and the strategies are being evaluated in the argument. The second boldface is an opinion that serves as the basis supporting an alternative to the earlier plan, but with the same ultimate goal—preservation of Wilgrinn land.

Premise1: Environmental organizations want to preserve the land surrounding the Wilgrinn Wilderness Area from residential development.
Premise2: They plan to do this by purchasing that land from the farmers who own it.
Conclusion1: That plan is ill-conceived: if the farmers did sell their land, they would sell it to the highest bidder, and developers would outbid any other bidders.
Premise4: On the other hand, these farmers will never actually sell any of the land, provided that farming it remains viable.
Premise5: But farming will not remain viable if the farms are left unmodernized, and most of the farmers lack the financial resources modernization requires.
Conclusion2: And that is exactly why a more sensible preservation strategy would be to assist the farmers to modernize their farms to the extent needed to maintain viability.

A. The first presents a goal that the argument rejects as ill-conceived; the second is evidence that is presented as grounds for that rejection.
First is indeed a goal that the argument concludes cannot be attained however second is not the evidence for that rejection, so this one is out.

B. The first presents a goal that the argument concludes cannot be attained; the second is a reason offered in support of that conclusion.
The first one is a goal, which author says can be attained so this one is out.

C. The first presents a goal that the argument concludes can be attained; the second is a judgment disputing that conclusion.
Second is not judgment disputing that conclusion.

D. The first presents a goal, strategies for achieving which are being evaluated in the argument; the second is a judgment providing a basis for the argument’s advocacy of a particular strategy.
Second one is not a judgment.

E. The first presents a goal that the argument endorses; the second presents a situation that the argument contends must be changed if that goal is to be met in the foreseeable future.
Second is not situation which must be changed.
Second one does look a situation which should be modified from present case.

I choose E.

C (1st BF): Environmental organizations want to preserve the land surrounding the Wilgrinn
Wilderness Area from residential development.
P1: They plan to do this by purchasing that land from the farmers who own it.
P2 or IC: That plan is ill-conceived: if the farmers did sell their land, they would sell it to the highest bidder, and developers would outbid any other bidders.
P3 (2nd BF): On the other hand, these farmers will never actually sell any of the land, provided that farming it remains viable.
P4: But farming will not remain viable if the farms are left unmodernized, and most of the farmers lack the financial resources modernization requires.
P5: A more sensible preservation strategy would be to assist the farmers to modernize their farms to the extent needed to maintain viability. (Endorsing 1st BF)

Author of passage is endorsing 1st BF, so A, B, and C is incorrect.

As per E description of 2nd BF seems incorrect to me.

So IMO D.

A. The first presents a goal that the argument rejects as ill-conceived; the second is
evidence that is presented as grounds for that rejection.
The argument does not rejects the goal.
B. The first presents a goal that the argument concludes cannot be attained; the
second is a reason offered in support of that conclusion.
The argument never says the the goal mentioned in first cannot be attained
C. The first presents a goal that the argument concludes can be attained; the second
is a judgment disputing that conclusion.
The first part is correct but the second is not as the second is not disputing the conclusion of the argument in any way.
D. The first presents a goal, strategies for achieving which are being evaluated in the
argument; the second is a judgment providing a basis for the argument’s advocacy
of a particular strategy.
This correctly identifies the two bold statements
E. The first presents a goal that the argument endorses; the second presents a
situation that the argument contends must be changed if that goal is to be met in
the foreseeable future.
The conclusion of the argument is that the solution will be to assist the farmers financially to achieve the goal. Whereas according to choice E the second presents a situation that must be changed to achieve the goal. Which is contradicting

Re: GMAT 700+ standrad CR [#permalink] New post 31 Jul 2011, 01:07
my answer is B. Do let me know the OA.

Reason -- >
The plan to by the land is an idea ( goal) and also the author clearly concludes this idea is ill - conceived

Further the author gives 2 reasons why this idea is ill-conceived.

1. If farmers sell, environmentalists cant buy it
or
2. Farmers wont sell

So the first BF is a goal which the argument concludes cannot be accomplished
second BF, is one of the reasons why the goal cannot be accomplished.

2nd Boldface : these farmers will never actually sell any of the land,
provided that farming it remains viable

This states farmers MIGHT sell provided farming would be continued on that land.

Only E satisfies the 2nd boldface.

E. The first presents a goal that the argument endorses; the second presents a
situation that the argument contends must be changed if that goal is to be met in
the foreseeable future

In the argument as a whole, the two boldface proportions play which of the following

E. The first presents a goal that the argument endorses; the second presents a

Can any one explain me what can be the answer?


We can outright reject A and B, because the first boldface is clearly a goal which the author does not say cannot be attained or is ill-conceived. Now similarly choice C can be rejected on the basis of the second statement that the author disputes the conclusion that the goal can be achieved. The author does not say the goal cannot be attained.

It is now between D and E. If we look closely at the second statement of E, it says that the second boldface presents a situation that the argument contends must be changed which the argument obviously does not. Actually the argument wants farming the land be made viable . That leaves us with D which we can see makes perfect sense. The first boldface indeed presents a goal which the author evaluates subsequently and the second is indeed the author's judgement which is farmers will not sell the land if farming it remains viable and he indeed advocates a particular strategy based on that which is assisting the farmers to modernize their farms.

i think D is the answer: The first part is the the goal, with followed evalutation; the second part is the author's preference-help farmers get mordenized to achieve the goal- the first part.
