Question No.: 34
Page: 128
Difficulty:


If the airspace around centrally located airports were restricted to commercial airliners and only those private planes equipped with radar, most of the private-plane traffic would be forced to use outlying airfields.Such a reduction in the amount of private-plane traffic would reduce the risk of midair collision around the centrally located airports

The conclusion drawn in the first sentence depends on which of the following assumptions?

(A) Outlying airfields would be as convenient as centrally located airports for most pilots of private planes.
(B) Most outlying airfields are not equipped to handle commercial-airline traffic.
(C) Most private planes that use centrally located airports are not equipped with radar.
(D) Commercial airliners are at greater risk of becoming involved in midair collisions than are private planes.
(E) A reduction in the risk of midair collision would eventually lead to increases in commercial airline traffic.
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

+1 C

There are tow types of private planes: those with radar and those without it.
Those with radar are allowed to fly in the restricted area.
Those without radar cannot fly in the restricted area, and they are a lot.

Negating C clearly crashes the conclusion.

I have picked C for this question:

The conclusion is: [highlight]The risk of midair collisions are the centrally located airports would be reduced.[/highlight]

A. This does not make sense. The reason for moving many of the private planes to the outlying airfields is not because of the convenience for the pilots.

B. Whether the outlying airfields can handle commercial airline traffic is irrelevant.

C. This is the correct answer. The passage states that "centrally located airports were restricted to commercial airliners and only those private planes equipped with radar." Therefore, the type of plane that cannot use the centrally located airports are the private planes that do not have radar.

D. This is not the assumed reason for moving private airplanes to outlying airfields.

E. How does the passage even prove this? This cannot be assumed.

IMO C......

if some planes are allowed then why some are not allowed?

lets diagram

restricted to privat plain with rada----->use outside airfield----> reduction trafic and accident

I call this type of argument "2 arrow in sequence"

in this type of argument,normally assumption which we are required to find is the assumption which is on the last arrow/last relation. but sometimes, the assumption which we have to find is assumption on the first arrow as in this case.

the process of prethinking an assmption should be on the last arrow/last relation. but when do not see the match in the answer choice, thing about an assumption on the first arrow.

gmat , of couse, know this pattern because they create questions. they create the experimental questions to test out reaction to each type of question and answer. suppose we are gmat and we have to create the questions, we will realize the patterns.

pls, commeny on my thinking.
