For a trade embargo against a particular country to succeed, a high degree of both international accord and ability to prevent goods from entering or leaving that country must be sustained. A total blockade of Patria’s ports is necessary to an embargo, but such an action would be likely to cause international discord over the embargo.

The claims above, if true, most strongly support which of the following conclusions?

(A) The balance of opinion is likely to favor Patria in the event of a blockade.
(B) As long as international opinion is unanimously against Patria, a trade embargo is likely to succeed.
(C) A naval blockade of Patria’s ports would ensure that no goods enter or leave Patria.
(D) Any trade embargo against Patria would be likely to fail at some time.
(E) For a blockade of Patria’s ports to be successful, international opinion must be unanimous.

Clear D. It cant be A because we(and the passage) are not concerned with what is favourable to Patria. So that puts A out of scope.

A discord means - some FOR and some AGAINST isnt it. So, we cannot say for sure that the opinion is likely to favour Patria.

Hope I'm talking sense :)

Re: CR - trade embargo [#permalink] New post 15 Apr 2006, 02:39
Answer Explanation

Situation If an embargo against Patria’s ports were released then it would trigger an international discord over the embargo.

Reasoning What is being suggested as a conclusion for this argument? The argument implies a variance between world countries regarded to Patria’s ports embargo. It is reasonable to assume that eventually the embargo would be canceled because it is need to have at least international agreement in such issues.

A. The passage does not discuss about balance of opinion and even what kind of opinion related to Patria’s ports embargo exists here.

B. The stimulus doesn’t concern about international agreement against Patria. That could be true but it is out of our scope. Because it is predicted that an controversy would be happened .

C. The statement could be true, but the embargo is not realistic in terms international discord over the embargo. So it can not be considered as a main conclusion.

D. Correct. Here we have the exact result from the passage information.

E. It is not conclusion, i.e. it just states again the condition of successful embargo.
