Ok man I'm trying to really understand the argument at end and playing hard
Few facts: evaluate the argument strenght and weaken the argument at the same time. Strenght do not destroy the conclusion as weel as weaken.
Now if I can't transfer the data we assume that we do not need to transfer them and our PCs work fine; but this sort of inference in my opinion go completely against the argument that we know saying that computer now or tomorrow or next century will fail.
now look at this question what is your choice
With less than 20 per cent market share, Cherico Airline has been steadily losing ground to other
competing airlines. However, the recent addition of the Dreamliner aircraft to its fleet might just
turn the tide for Cherico. The Dreamliner claims 15 per cent more fuel efficiency than competing
similar aircrafts and cheaper maintenance costs. With the induction of these planes, Cherico will
get a competitive advantage over its more aggressive rivals, which will be saddled with older
aircrafts and get deliveries of their own Dreamliners only in 2014.
Which of the following would it be most useful to determine in order to evaluate the argument?
(A) Whether it is possible for Cherico to cut costs even more by reducing the number of
stewards in the air plane
(B) Whether it is possible for Cherico to improve the Dreamliner’s fuel efficiency even further by
restricting the amount of luggage passengers can carry
(C) Whether Cherico can increase its revenues by charging for the meals it serves in its aircrafts
(D) Whether the Dreamliner’s maintenance costs will be substantially lower than those of
Cherico’s rivals’ aircrafts
(E) Whether it will be possible for Cherico’s rivals to somehow get deliveries of their own
I'm assuming, in addition, that our question is official material and the answer is D
Ok. I will go with C as the answer to the question you listed *crossing my fingers*
Let me know If I am right.
So back to the original question.
The issue ,IMO, is that the antiquated archive format is only on 1 system, SO if that systems fails, the company is screwed and will no longer have access to the data.
To hedge against such an event, they will place the information on a new system that can be accessed by multiple terminals. So if one terminal fails, the data can be accessed from another terminal.
We are assuming that the antiquated format CAN be transferred to the new system, which CAN be accessed by multiple terminals.
What if the data cannot be transferred? If such is the case, then the proposal makes no sense, and should not move forward.
What if the data CAN be transferred? If such is the case, the proposal does make sense, and should move forward.
Bottom line, the transferability of the antiquated format is a deal breaker..
What are your thoughts?
