Can you please tell me, how can we improve the communication skills while reading this? As I believe we can do so but not sure how to get it under focus.

In the second question, the correct answer choice is D.
Smaller class sizes and capital improvements in a school system tend to increase property values in the surrounding community.
Why not option A, which could also be true since its not explicitly mentioned about the increase in the property value.
Can anyone help me with this question.

"Which of the following, if true, provides the town council with the strongest counter to the objection that its plan is unfair?"

Now, go back and look at question 1. Why was it declared unfair?

"....because the majority of the people who would end up paying for the improvements receive no benefit from them."

Consequently, we can conclude that option A would certainly do nothing to alleviate this concern. While it may address the issue of 'fairness', it is not directly dealing with the type of fairness outlined in the objection of question 1. Has to be D.

Hey carcass!

Could you elaborate on question 6 please? Although I realize (after reading the explanation) that the problem in this question is the scope shift from # of entries to 'Regularity' of entries (how consecutively you enter - as in an evenly spaced set :D ), i don't seem to understand why answer D is correct because it simply restates the conclusion. How can a conclusion be an argument's assumption?

Max

A recent report determined that although only eight percent of drivers entering Banff National Park possessed yearly entry permits, as opposed to day passes, these drivers represented fifteen percent of all vehicles entering the Park. Clearly, drivers who possess yearly entry permits are more likely to enter Banff National Park on a regular basis than are drivers who do not.

The conclusion drawn above depends on which of the following assumptions?

A) The number of entries to Banff National Park by drivers with yearly entry permits does not exceed the number of yearly entry permits issued by the Park.

B) Drivers who possess yearly entry permits to Banff National Park are more likely to stay longer in the Park than drivers who do not.

C) All drivers with yearly entry permits to Banff National Park entered the Park at least once during the period of the report.

D) Drivers possessing yearly entry permits to Banff National Park are more likely to enter the Park regularly than are drivers who do not.

E) Drivers who entered Banff National Park with yearly permits during the period of the report were representative of the types of drivers who have entered other national parks with similar yearly permits.

TIPS

Something that is not mentioned in the facts but mentioned in the conclusion has to be mentioned in the assumption. Also, a connection (BRIDGE/LINK) between X and Y should occur in the assumption

Something that is mentioned both in the facts and in the conclusion will usually not figure in the assumption
