Governments have only one response to public criticism of socially necessary services: regulation of the activity of providing those services. But governments inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it, and that is particularly troublesome in these times of strained financial resources. However, since public criticism of child-care services has undermined all confidence in such services, and since such services are socially necessary, the government is certain to respond.
Which one of the following statements can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The quality of child care will improve.
(B) The cost of providing child-care services will increase.
(C) The government will use funding to foster advances in child care.
(D) If public criticism of policy is strongly voiced, the government is certain to respond.
(E) If child-care services are not regulated, the cost of providing child care will not increase.

Which one of the following statements can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The quality of child care will improve.......No where mentioned in the stimulus that the quality of the service will improve
(B) The cost of providing child-care services will increase.......after the government regulation cost of the services increases and in the last few sentences it is mentioned that childcare services are important and government will definitely act therefore this option can be correctly inferred
(C) The government will use funding to foster advances in child care......Not at all related to the stimulus
(D) If public criticism of policy is strongly voiced, the government is certain to respond....not related to the stimulus
(E) If child-care services are not regulated, the cost of providing child care will not increase.....not within the scope of the stimulus

(E) If child-care services are not regulated, the cost of providing child care will not increase.

Consider this almost analogous scenario:
At dawn, rooster crows. If rooster crows, farmer wakes up.

Same happens here;
If we can prove that there is public criticism of socially necessary services, then government will say let's regulate the service, and the regulation will cost money.

From the passage:
since public criticism of child-care services has undermined all confidence in such services -> Public criticism occurred.
and since such services are socially necessary -> child-care services are socially necessary services. -> Means, a public
criticism on socially necessary services occurred. It must trigger Event B, government response with regulation; Event B will trigger event C, regulation will cause money.

Ans: "B"

Why is E not the answer , can someone explain ,In E it is mentioned that if no regulation happens then cost willnot increase , which can be inferred from the statement --->Government inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it ..... the government is certain to respond. how do u assume that government response can only be by regulation ???

Crack HSW...

we know that if the services are regulated, the cost is certain to rise. but we are not told of what will happen if the services are not regulated... the costs may rise for some other reason

if the statement said "may not rise" it would be a good contender.. but by saying will not rise, E falls apart

No assumption:
Governments have only one response to public criticism of socially necessary services: regulation of the activity. Thus, regulation will happen, for the public criticism happened.

"E" can't be inferred properly.
If event A occurs, B occurs.
Does not mean:
If event A does not occur, B will not occur.

If I go to the bar, I'll drink Scotch whiskey.
Does not mean;
If I do not go to the bar, I won't drink Scotch whiskey. I may drink one at home, who knows?

B is correct because of the ripple:
A occurs->B occurs->C occurs
We can infer only the following:
If A occurs, B occurs
If A occurs, C occurs
If B occurs, C occurs.

Rest is written in my earlier post.

Straight B.

The correct answers to inference questions avoid extremes and have no frills: in short, they stick to the script and avoid drawing conclusions for which sufficient info is not provided.

If government is certain to respond to public outcry by regulating day care, then costs will inevitably rise.

Cheers,
Der alte Fritz.

That was an easy take but my question is why "however" has been used in the stimulus. However introduces a contrast but there is no need for it. I chose B under 40 secs but was wondering about the usage of "however", and wasted some time. I will highly appreciate if anyone explains its usage.
