Newspaper editor: Law enforcement experts, as well as most citizens, have finally come to recognize that legal prohibitions against gambling all share a common flaw: no matter how diligent the effort, the laws are impossible to enforce. Ethical qualms notwithstanding, when a law fails to be effective, it should not be a law. That is why there should be no legal prohibition against gambling.

Which one of the following, if assumed, allows the argumentâ€™s conclusion to be properly drawn?
(A) No effective law is unenforceable.
(B) All enforceable laws are effective.
(C) No legal prohibitions against gambling are enforceable.
(D) Most citizens must agree with a law for the law to be effective.
(E) Most citizens must agree with a law for the law to be enforceable.

All right guys i am little confused about ..what type of question is this.

are we looking for an assumption ..then answer should be C cause

Quote:
when a law fails to be effective, it should not be a law

cause A and B is already stated in passage ..so can not be an assumption

so it should be C

Ethical qualms notwithstanding, when a law fails to be effective, it should not be a law. (sth missed here)That is why there should be no legal prohibition against gambling.

Which one of the following, if assumed, allows the argumentâ€™s conclusion to be properly drawn?
(C) No legal prohibitions against gambling are enforceable.

legal prohibitions= laws ; uneffective/ unenforcable laws= not a law ----> all laws are unenforceable= there should be no law.
since all laws are unenforcable= all legal prohibitions are unenforceable (this is what C states) ----> there should be no legal prohibition ( the conclusion)
In other way, the conclusion: there should be no legal prohibition----> why? Of coz , the answer is what C provides.

I am stuck between C and D.

I think C is rather too strong assumption.

I will go with D.
