(N/A)

Question Stats:

50% (01:12) correct 50% (01:30) wrong based on 5 sessions
Mr. Janeck: I don’t believe Stevenson will win the election for governor. Few voters are willing to elect a businessman with no political experience to such a responsible public office.
Ms. Siuzdak: You’re wrong. The experience of running a major corporation is a valuable preparation for the task of running a state government.

M. Siuzdak’s response shows that she has interpreted Mr. Janeck’s remark to imply which of the following?

(A) Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor.
(B) No candidate without political experience has ever been elected governor of a state.
(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous.
(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly.
(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate.

(A) Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor. Correct!

(B) No candidate without political experience has ever been elected governor of a state. too extreme/incorrect

(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous. Exactly opposite

(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly. Not discussed at all

(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate. Not discussed at all

A is incorrect to me because, Mr. Janeck never states that he think the candidate is unsuitable. He merely states that since the voter values political experience, Mr. Janeck is unlikely to win the election given that all Mr. Janeck has is business experience.

Siuzdak objects to the Janeck's affirmation that Stevenson has no political experience and therefore will not be elected (Janck says in fact that the lack of political experience makes Stevenson unqualified).

It is not E (voters overestimate the value of political experience), because if it was, Siuzak wouldn't object as he believes the same thing => Siuzak is the one saying that the political experience is overestimated (he says that the experience gained running a major corporation is as relevant as the political experience)

Hope it helps.
