Not very easy one :-D

12. While it is certainly true that almost all
literate citizens could be taught to improve
their ability to read and reason, it
must first be demonstrated that such an
undertaking would increase the general
welfare.


(A) While it is certainly true that almost
all literate citizens could be taught to
improve their ability to read and reason,
it must first be demonstrated
that such an undertaking would increase
the general welfare.

(B) While it is certainly true that almost
all literate citizens could improve their
reading and reasoning skills, such a
vast undertaking requires a clear demonstration
of benefit before being undertaken.

(C) Before undertaking to improve the
reading and reasoning of almost all
citizens, it is necessary to show that
the project will work.

(D) Before the project of improving almost
all citizens’ reading and reasoning
skills is undertaken, that the outcome
will be increased happiness must
be demonstrated.

(E) Prior to the improvement of citizens’
reading and reasoning skills, it must
be shown that they will be happier
with the improved skills than they
are now.

OA will be posted later.

The correct answer is (A). The original, while not a wonderful sentence, is
not wrong. (B) omits the standard of judging benefit (general welfare). (C)
leaves aside all consideration of benefit and focuses only on the feasibility of the
project. (D) is perhaps second best, though a little convoluted. However, it omits the
certainty that the project could be accomplished. (E) incorrectly refers to the happiness
of the individuals, while the original referred to the general welfare, which
might not be the same thing at all.
