Re: Jane: Professor Harper s ideas for modifying the design of [#permalink] New post 24 Oct 2013, 22:55
it took me 3 minutes to figure this one out.

A Mark’s argument shows how a weakness in Jane’s argument can be
overcome. Incorrect. He is giving his own understanding and observation about modifying guitar, not anything to what Jane says.

B Mark’s argument has a premise in common with Jane’s argument. Incorrect. They both agree to the same conclusion ( Harper's ideas for modifying guitars is not good) but not based on the same premise.

C Mark and Jane use similar techniques to argue for different conclusions. Incorrect. They have the same conclusion.

D Mark’s argument restates Jane’s argument in other terms. Incorrect. They have the same conclusion but not the same premise. Although this looks like a very attractive choice

E Mark’s argument and Jane’s argument are based on conflicting suppositions.Correct. Jane believes that there is no way to evaluate the merit of a guitar sound but Mark believes that it can be done. (....It took only ten years for the Torres design for guitars to be almost universally adopted because of the improvement it makes in tonal quality....)

Jane: Professor Harper’s ideas for modifying the design of guitars are of no
value because there is no general agreement among musicians as to what a
guitar should sound like and, consequently, no widely accepted basis for
evaluating the merits of a guitar’s sound.
Mark: What’s more, Harper’s ideas have had enough time to be adopted if
they really resulted in superior sound. It took only ten years for the Torres
design for guitars to be almost universally adopted because of the
improvement it makes in tonal quality. Which one of the following most
accurately describes the relationship between Jane’s argument and Mark’s
argument?

A Mark’s argument shows how a weakness in Jane’s argument can be
overcome. => there is no information to see that Mark points out a weakness in Jane's argument but he rather adds more reasons for the same conclusion as Jane (dont agree for Pr.Harper idea)

B Mark’s argument has a premise in common with Jane’s argument. => They have different premises. Jane: dont agree with the idea b/c there is no agreement among musicians, whereas Mark disagrees with the Harper's idea b/c if the idea is good, it would be adopted.

C Mark and Jane use similar techniques to argue for different conclusions. => they have same conclusion (disagree with Harper idea)

D Mark’s argument restates Jane’s argument in other terms. => they have different argument

E Mark’s argument and Jane’s argument are based on conflicting suppositions. =>clear, elimination technique from above, this is the correct one!
