Intuition guides people in making judgments by using learned associations that automatically surface as feelings.
As people gain experience in a field, they learn to associate the defining characteristics of phenomena with
particular feelings and many of their judgments can become automatic. For example, rather than going step-by-step
through a decision tree, experienced car mechanics will often, after a quick look and listen, intuitively identify the problem.

Which of the following statements is most strongly implied by the information above?

A. An experienced car mechanic does not need to deliberate about most judgments related to that field.
B. Judgments made on the basis of intuition are rarely wrong.
C. Most quick judgments are made on the basis of intuition.
D. An experienced car mechanic will often be guided by feelings when diagnosing problems with cars.
E. Judgments made on the basis of a decision tree are less likely to be correct than those made on the basis of intuition.

Summary of entire passage is:
learnings->surfaces as Feeling-> in form of intuition ->makes 'many' judgments automatic

B, C and E are extreme choices and could be eliminated in first look. Between A and D, D has a moderate expression that fits the analysis done above.

Ans D it is!

I concur with Vips, only D makes sense. Rest are all too extreme.

Hi Vips!!

Though I also chose D but could not come up with a strong reason to eliminate A.

Please help explain why A can't be the answer. Is it the word "most" in answer choice A that makes it incorrect?

Thanks!!

I also go with D.
Zeroed down to a and D, It was easy to eliminate A as it explains its ease of taking decision in its field, which is somewhat similar to C.
But i took 2 min 10 sec for this

Right. the 'most' in answer choice takes A in the wrong direction. Note that question states 'often'.
if the option A is restated with 'some' instead of 'most', it would be correct.

If the mechanic has learned from experience to fix problems in a brisk fashion, can't we infer that he does not need
to deliberate on most judgements related to the field?
most > 50%
How does it differ from "the mechanic does not need to deliberate on "some "judgements
related to the field
some = 1-100%

In the meantime, OA is actually

D

Hi,
I actually asked a question, but no feedback to date.

IMO
Option A says the mechanic does not need to deliberate about MOST judgements relating to the field;
The judgements are guided by feelings learned over time as they gain experience in that particular field,
and MANY of the judgements can become instantaneous, as a result.

A: An experienced car mechanic does not need to deliberate about most judgments related to that field.
This option seems to replace "many" with "most", and i feel that is not correct.
"Most" means greater than 50% of something; "many" does not necessarily mean "most"
In a population of 10m people, we can safely consider 4m as many people, isn't it?

This is just my opinion, and I stand to be corrected.
Thanks.
