i would go for B...

they are trying to say that more ppl live in location Y than location X and ppl only go to the library if its close to them...
what if Y is bigger than X...it would mean that ppl living at the outskirts of Y are not within 'walking distance' of the library and hence wouldn't go....


I vote for E.

Well, if Y was indeed bigger it would have been an even bigger difficutly for them to reach the lib in X than when it is relocated to Y.

OE please ??


Well, having more people live in the area doesn't mean more people will visit the library. That's a pretty hugh assumption to make in between isnt it?



yeah but the argument states that the reason the second place is preferred is that there are more people in the area and thus more ppl will be encouraged to go to the library due to being within walking distance...

Fact: More people live in center G than in central R.
Premise: People will walk to the library only if it is locted close to their homes.
Conclusion: Library building in central G is within walking distance of a larger number of users.

To get to the conclusion we have to prove that more people live within walking distance to the library. If the two area are the same size, then the higher density area would generate more people within walking distance, no matter how walking distance is defined. Therefore B is correct.

E is out of scope, and actually weakens the argument by defuse the premise by stating people is willing to walk to the library even if it is located farther then what is normally considered walking distance.


Good one honghu, I failed to get the proper conclusion for this passage. :oops:


I finally got the finer point , thanks HH.
