Kaplan Practice question 38

If participation in the honors creative writing class were limited to graduate students and those undergraduates who had received atleast a B+ in composition, most of the undergraduate students would be forced to take the regular creative writing class. Such a reduction in undergraduate enrollment would reduce the percentage of failing grades in the honors class.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the conclusion drawn in the second sentence above?

a. Graduate students have all scored at least B+ in composition.
b. The honors creative writing course is experiencing overcrowding due to increases in graduate enrollment.
c. Many undergraduates would work harder to score B+ in composition rather than be excluded form honors creative writing.
d. The number of failing grades in honors creative writing has decreased in recent years.
e. Undergraduates who scored lower than B+ in composition are responsible for a disproportionate percentage of failing grades in honors creative writing.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the conclusion drawn in sentence 2 above?

a. Graduate students have all scored at least B+ in composition.
b. The honors creative writing course is experiencing overcrowding due to increases in graduate enrollment.
c. Many undergraduates would work harder to score B+ in composition rather than be excluded form honors creative writing.
d. The number of failing grades in honors creative writing has decreased in recent years.
e. Undergraduates who scored lower than B+ in composition are responsible for a disproportionate precentage of failing grades in honors creative writing.

Please help!



E

Under grads who score less than B plus would be motivated to score and hence reduce % of failing at honours

Focus on the conclusion ("Such a reduction in undergraduate enrollment would reduce the percentage of failing grades in the honors class.")
A - At best this is irrelevant. It may even weaken the conclusion
B - That's real nice but we are not concerned about any overcrowding
C - Working harder reflects a good work ethic but does not guarantee higher grades. You cannot assume that working harder will result in higher grades.
D - Irrelevant
E - Correct response since it is consistent with the conclusion ("Such a reduction in undergraduate enrollment would reduce the percentage of failing grades in the honors class.")
