Environmentalist: The use of snowmobiles [#permalink] New post 19 Jan 2005, 18:56
Environmentalist:

The use of snowmobiles in the vast park north of Milville creates unacceptable levels of air pollution and should be banned.


Milville business spokesperson:

Snowmobiling brings many out-of-towners to Milville in winter months, to the great financial benefit of many local residents. So, economics dictate that we put up with the pollution.


Environmentalist:

I disagree: A great many cross-country skiers are now kept from visiting Milville by the noise and pollution that snowmobiles generate.


Environmentalist responds to the business spokesperson by doing which of the following?



A. Challenging an assumption that certain desirable outcome can derive from only one set of circumstances

B. Challenging an assumption that certain desirable outcome is outweighed by negative aspects associated with producing that outcome

C. Maintaining that the benefit that the spokesperson desires could be achieved in greater degree by a different means

D. Claiming that the spokesperson is deliberately misrepresenting the environmentalistÂ

E) or B

E
financial benefit of many local residents is expected. Environmentalist is arguing that financial benifit did not happen as the cross-country skiers don't come any more.

B sounds ok too

The businessman says snowmobile benefit the economy since it brings tourist. The enviornmentalist says snowmobile results in pollution thus deters tourist. So something (snowmobile) thought to be benefitable is actually not benefitable.

I can't believe OA is (B).

B. Challenging an assumption that certain desirable outcome is outweighed by negative aspects associated with producing that outcome

It is the envioronmentalists' position that certain desirable outcome (torism boom economy) is outweighed by negative aspective aspects associated with producing that outcome (pollution is associated with snowmobile production). They are not challenging this assumption.

gmat logic [#permalink] New post 28 Jan 2005, 06:44
honghu, at first i was tempted to pick a, too, but then decided on b, based on experience from similar problems. there is a certain "gmat logic" that SOMETIMES seems to contradict "standard logic".

What?! That cannot be true! :eek: Now why would there be a GMAT logic that is different from the standard logic? They should be ashamed of themselves. :shame:

This question seems somewhat nonstandard- challenging the assertion would seem a better way to phrase the question.

Re: RC-Environm [#permalink] New post 08 Oct 2010, 15:10
Just did the test today and got angry with this one. Anyone notice "financial benefit" in the stem?

I was thinking the cross country skiers were ones who ski long distance who do not necessarily use the park and pay fees .... bla bla... and not like the alpine ones who ski downhill in the park... bla bla.

Anyone with me?

Re: Environmentalist: The use of snowmobiles [#permalink] New post 04 Dec 2013, 09:23
Answer should be choice A.

The environmentalist did not say (challenge) the statement, "economic benefits outweigh the negative impact of snowboarding, which is pollution".

He/she was thinking like, "yeah, the spokesperson is probably right that economic benefit is more preferable. So, let me do one thing. I will tell him about the fact that they are loosing out on the huge number of cross country skiers who could ALSO bring economic benefit."

So,

A. Challenging an assumption that certain desirable outcome can derive from only one set of circumstances

makes sense anyone? :-D
