Informed people generally assimilate information from several divergent sources before coming to an opinion. However, most popular news organizations view foreign affairs solely through the eyes of our State Department. In reporting the political crisis in foreign country B, news organizations must endeavor to find alternative sources of information.
Which of the following inferences can be drawn from the argument above?
(A) To the degree that a news source gives an account of another country that mirrors that of our State Department, that reporting is suspect.
(B) To protect their integrity, news media should avoid the influence of State Department releases in their coverage of foreign affairs.
(C) Reporting that is not influenced by the State Department is usually more accurate than are other accounts.
(D) The alternative sources of information mentioned in the passage would probably not share the same views as the State Department.
(E) A report cannot be seen as influenced by the State Department if it accurately depicts the events in a foreign country.


Since 'inference' question types are categorised separately here, what is the difference between 'must be true' and 'inference' questions and what is the difference in strategy for such questions? I did get the answer to this but am interested in approach towards these types. Would appreciate if anyone can throw a light on my question....Thanks

Yes the answer is D.

However, my initial question related to this type of ques was:

Since 'inference' question types are categorised separately here, what is the difference between 'must be true' and 'inference' questions and what is the difference in strategy for such questions? I did get the answer to this but am interested in approach towards these types. Would appreciate if anyone can throw a light on my question....Thanks

I consider both 'Must be True and inferernce question as same. the corect aswer to these question lies in the statement i.e. they say the same thing in a different way and strictly no outside information can be added as an aswer So when u see the options agin, you might find 'D' only does reiteration. Also 'Must be true' d 'Inference' dont generally have conclusions
