Muscular strength is a limited resource, and athletic techniques help to use this resource
efficiently. Since top athletes do not differ greatly from each other in muscular strength, it
follows that a requirement for an athlete to become a champion is a superior mastery of
athletic techniques. Which one of the following most accurately expresses the conclusion of
the argument?
a) Only champion athletes have a superior mastery of athletic techniques.
b) Superior muscular strength is a requirement for an athlete to become a champion.
c) No athlete can become a champion without a superior mastery of athletic techniques.
d) The differences in muscular strength between top athletes are not great.
e) Athletic techniques help athletes use limited resources efficiently.

Edit: this states that no athletes who are not champions can have a mastery in athletic techniques which is wrong.

b) Superior muscular strength is a requirement for an athlete to become a champion.
Edit: muscular strength?

c) No athlete can become a champion without a superior mastery of athletic techniques.

Correct

d) The differences in muscular strength between top athletes are not great.
Edit: that is stated and is not conclusion

e) Athletic techniques help athletes use limited resources efficiently.

a) Only champion athletes have a superior mastery of athletic techniques.
b) Superior muscular strength is a requirement for an athlete to become a champion.
false;incorrect
c) No athlete can become a champion without a superior mastery of athletic techniques.
True;this statement concludes the argument.
d) The differences in muscular strength between top athletes are not great.
similar to (A)-already mentioned as premise-incorrect choice
e) Athletic techniques help athletes use limited resources efficiently.
which limited resources? -incorrect choice
