Difficulty:

55% (medium)

Question Stats:

41% (03:05) correct 58% (02:16) wrong based on 56 sessions
A question I stumbled across in the CR Bible:

No one in the French department to which Professor Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one introductory level class in any one term. Moreover, the only language classes being taught next term are advanced ones. So it is untrue that both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will be introductory level classes.

The pattern of reasoning displayed in the argument above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of the following arguments?

A. The Morrison Building will be fully occupied by May and since if a building is occupied by May the new tax rates apply to it, the Morrison building will be taxed according to the new rates.

B. The revised tax code does not apply at all to buildings built before 1900, and only the first section of the revised code applies to buildings built between 1900 and 1920, so the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building , since it was built in 1873.

C. All property on Overon Road will be reassessed for tax purposes by the end of the year and the Elnor Company headquarters is on Overton Road, so Elnor's property taxes will be higher next year.

D. New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years and all new buildings in the city's Alton district are exempt for 5 years, so the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.

E. Since according to recent statute, a building that is exempt from property taxes is charged for city water at a special rate, and hospitals are exempt from property taxes, Founder's Hospital will be charged for city water at the special rate.

There's one thing in the OA I don't get: They say "each of the answer choices except (B) contains a conclusion with similar language to the conclusion in the stimulus." I don't see how the conclusion of (B) is so different from the other AC and the stimulus. Could someone please shed some light on this?

A quick side note: This is not a main point of the OA, so it's not that important but I was curious nonetheless.

I dont know if I am right or not, but you can see the pattern in all answer options -

Conclusion in AC - A/C/D/E all talks about Situation that would happen in future.
E.g - (E) - founder's hospital will be charged
- (D) Will not be subject to city taxes not year
(C) so Elnor's property taxes will be higher next year
(A) the Morrison building will be taxed according to the new rates.

While (B) Staright forwardly concludes that so the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building , since it was built in 1873. it puts clear judgement on table with concrete proofs with time, thus its different...
