Even though most universities retain the royalties from faculty members’ inventions, the faculty membersretain the royalties from books and articles they write. Therefore, faculty members should retain the royalties from the educational computer software they develop. The conclusion above would be more reasonably drawn if which of the following were inserted into the argument as an additional premise?

A. Royalties from inventions are higher than royalties from educational software programs.

B. Faculty members are more likely to produce educational software programs than inventions.

C. Inventions bring more prestige to universities that do books and articles.

D. In the experience of most universities, educational software programs are more marketable that are books and articles.

E. In terms of the criteria used to award royalties, educational software programs are more nearly comparable to books and articles than to inventions.

The conclusion above would be more reasonably drawn if which of the following were inserted into the argument as an additional premise?

A. Royalties from inventions are higher than royalties from educational software programs. out of scope

B. Faculty members are more likely to produce educational software programs than inventions. still shows no correlation why they should receive royalties from software

C. Inventions bring more prestige to universities that do books and articles. out of scope

D. In the experience of most universities, educational software programs are more marketable that are books and articles. even if they are more marketable, doesn't show why faculty should get royalty

E. In terms of the criteria used to award royalties, educational software programs are more nearly comparable to books and articles than to inventions. if software is comparable to books/articles then this is reason why faculty should also receive royalties from software too.


We are trying to find the missing piece to the puzzle - the other supporting statement to make the conclusion true.

Premise 1: Even though most universities retain the royalties from faculty members’ inventions, the faculty members retain the royalties from books and articles they write.

Conclusion: Therefore, faculty members should retain the royalties from the educational computer software they develop.

To simplify, universities obtain royalties from inventions and faculty members obtain royalties from books and articles. The answer we are trying to find a link between books/articles and educational computer software.
The only choice I see that fits is choice E. -> In terms of the criteria used to award royalties, educational software programs are more nearly comparable to books and articles than to inventions.

What is the OA? :)
