In the early 1960s, Myanmar was the richest country in Asia, but then it closed its economy to the outside world and is now the poorest country in the region. However, Myanmar is now opening up its economy to the outside world once again, and so will soon regain its former glory. Thus it makes sense for smart investors to invest in Myanmar.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) A closed economy will rapidly deplete the financial resources of a country

(B) The countries that dealt with Myanmar in 1962 will still be interested in dealing with it

(C) If Myanmar does not open up its economy to the outside world, it will continue to remain poor.

(D) The severe internal unrest that has continued in Myanmar for the last several years is not responsible for its current financial state.

(E) At least some smart investors are currently aware of Myanmar’s past glory

OE

Official Answer: D
Explanation
The argument concludes that the only reason why Myanmar became the poorest country in the
Asian region is because it closed its economy to the outside world. Thus it assumes that there can
be no other explanation for this fact. (D) is one such passive assumption, which has to be true for
the conclusion to be true. If you negate (D) then the argument will fall apart.
A. This may be inferred from the argument but is definitely not an assumption
B. Doesn’t necessarily have to be true. New countries may want to deal with Myanmar now.
C. Again this may be an inference but is not an assumption
D. The correct answer.
E. This is irrelevant to the argument
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

Argument : Myanmar was poor because it closed it's economy to outside market. but now days will change. So investors will invest.
Assumption : Days will change only because Myanmar is going to open market. No other factors is leads to low economy of Myanmar.

(D) The severe internal unrest that has continued in Myanmar for the last several years is not responsible for its current financial state.
---- This states the exact reason why Myanmar was poor these many days and this is assumption
(E) At least some smart investors are currently aware of Myanmar’s past glory
--- No not exactly. this choice to particular about single sentence.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) A closed economy will rapidly deplete the financial resources of a country Irrelevant

(C) If Myanmar does not open up its economy to the outside world, it will continue to remain poor. Irrelevant

(D) The severe internal unrest that has continued in Myanmar for the last several years is not responsible for its current financial state. The current financial state is not important. We are interested in the past glory and the potentially futurenglory

(E) At least some smart investors are currently aware of Myanmar’s past glory



If Myianmar opens its economy , it will regain its past glory. In order for this to happen, there must be some smart investors who are aware of the country's past glory. Therefore, answer E.

Thus it makes sense for smart investors to invest in Myanmar.--Conclusion
(E) At least some smart investors are currently aware of Myanmar’s past glory--Correct
If they don't aware of past glory then they won't invest at all in Myanmar. If they don't invest then Myanmar will remain the poor country even if they open their economy to outer world.

Since its asking for assumption..

My take is A.

Author is assuming that the economy fell only because the country closed its economy for outside world and will regain it once it opens again.

My take is A.

Author is assuming that the economy fell only because the country closed its economy for outside world and will regain it once it opens again.


In an assumption question we can get the answer by negating answer choice.The negated answer choice that attacks the argument will be the correct answer.In this argument

Premises : In the early 1960s, Myanmar was the richest country in Asia, but then it closed its economy to the outside world and is now the poorest country in the region.

Counter Premises: However, Myanmar is now opening up its economy to the outside world once again, and so will soon regain its former glory.

Conclusion :Thus it makes sense for smart investors to invest in Myanmar.



(A) A closed economy will rapidly deplete the financial resources of a country .If We negate this answer choice by saying that A closed economy will not rapidly deplete the financial resources of the country.Thus it has no effect on conclusion.

(E) At least some smart investors are currently aware of Myanmar’s past glory.If we negate this answer choice by saying that None smart invertors are currently aware of Mayanmar`s past glory.It attacks the conclusion.thus its the answer.

(D) The severe internal unrest that has continued in Myanmar for the last several years is not responsible for its current financial state.

(E) At least some smart investors are currently aware of Myanmar’s past glory



A - It is out of context . It talks about a generic conclusion i.e A closed economy will rapidly deplete the financial resources of a country.
A closed economy has resulted for Mayanmar's poor economic condition , but this may not be true for other countries.
B - Irrelevant . If a country which dealt with Myanmar in 1962 is now not interested doesn't change the equation, as there could be other countries which may be interested in dealing with Myanmar
C - Its a restatement or ISWAT .
D- Correct - there are no other factors except for closed economy which resulted in Myanmar's poor economic condition. If we negate this statement the conclusion will shatter.
Because if the internal unrest is still present then opening up the economy may not serve the intended purpose.
E- OFS. Even if noone is currently aware of Myanmar's past glory , they can eventually make out once Myanmar's economy starts growing

Hi,

Facts :

- Myanmar had a glory past and was the richest country in Asia
- Since Myanmar closed its economy, it is now the poorest country in the region.
- Myanmar plans to re-open its economy to the outside again

Conclusion :

- Myanmar will soon regain its former glory and smart investors should invest there.

(D) The severe internal unrest that has continued in Myanmar for the last several years is not responsible for its current financial state.

IMO D is the correct answer because if we negate it, then the second premise will not be valid at all .
Negating D means that the poor financial situation that Myanmar endures now was caused by factors other than those stemmed from the closed economy.
So without D, How a smart investor can be sure that the only reason behind this brutal decline( from the richest to the poorest) is the decision to close economy to outside and therefore can conclude that YES, Myanmar will re-open its economy to outside ,will soon become the richest country and this is A GREAT OPPORTUNITY ??
D fills the gap between the premise and the conclusion stating that investing in Myanmar is a great idea but the only reason for the brutal decline has to be the closed economy to outside.

Hi Ivan91,
I feel your moving away.

As Rock750 stated,
Actually assumption needs to fill the gap between premise and conclusion.
In this case you meant, I felt you were building your assumption over conclusion without filling out the gap.

I'm waiting for OA and OE

I do not think D can be the answer...It just means there other reasons for the current financial state....what impact will that have on the conclusion....
IMO C or E must be the OA

But C could be a hypothesis if happens and at most an inference question. Moreover, we care about of the investors. C is an inference question (probably) but not an assumption

D for me. I used the negation technique and D reads

(D) The severe internal unrest that has continued in Myanmar for the last several years is responsible for its current financial state.

If internal unrest is responsible for its current financial state then the conclusion does not make sense.
