Gloria: Those who advocate tuition tax credits for parents whose children attend private schools maintain that people making no use of a government service should not be forced to pay for it. Yet those who choose to buy bottled water rather than drink water from the local supply are not therefore exempt from paying taxes to maintain the local water supply.

Roger: Your argument is illogical. Children are required by law to attend school. Since school attendance is a matter not of choice, but of legal requirement, it is unfair for the government to force some parents to pay for it twice.

Which of the following responses by Gloria would best refute Roger’s charge that her argument is illogical?

(A) Although drinking water is not required by law, it is necessary for all people, and therefore my analogy is appropriate.
(B) Those who can afford the tuition at a high-priced private school can well bear the same tax burden as those whose children attend public schools.
(C) If tuition tax credits are granted, the tax burden on parents who choose public schools will rise to an intolerable level.
(D) The law does not say that parents must send their children to private schools, only that the children must attend some kind of school, whether public or private.
(E) Both bottled water and private schools are luxury items, and it is unfair that some citizens should be able to afford them while others cannot.

A looks pretty good.

rdg, is there a reason you did not choose A.

One more vote for A. It looks better than the rest of the options.

You guys are doing great. The answer is 'A'.

But I was confused with answer 'D', as it mentions about either public or private schooling, where choice of school is not mandated by law.

I was also confused with answer 'D'. Is there anybody who could explain why 'A' is better than 'D'?

Gloria: (1)Phenomenon X. (2) X vs. Y.
Roger: You commit "Faulty Analogy", because X and Y are different--X's case is not of choice, but of legal requirement.

A. Gloria: People must drink water--requirement also, even not by law. So analogy is correct.
D. Gloria: X is of choice-- Roger already shifted the point from "choice" to "requirement".
