RC - Paraphrase question. [#permalink] New post 21 May 2005, 05:46
Passage Excerpt:

The next question was the size of the okapi population. Because okapis were infrequently captured by hunters, some zoologists beleived that they were rare; however, others theorized that their habits simply kept them out of sight. It was not until 1985, when zoologists started tracking okapis by affixing collars equipped with radio transmitters to briefly captured specimens, that reliable information about okapi numbers and habits began to be collected. It turns out that while okapis are not as rare as some zoologists suspected, their population is concentrated in an extremely limited chain of forestland in northeastern central Africa, surrounded by savanna.

Quesition:

Based on the passage, the author would be most likely to agree with which one of the following statements?

A) The number of okapis is many time larger thatn zoologists had previously believed it to be.


Is AC "A" a bad paraphrase of the bolded content? Or does the bolded concent traslate/equate to the AC A?

I would say that AC A is not valid, and is not a good paraphrase of the content. To say that okapis are not as rare as some zoologists suspected
in no way implies the much stronger statement,
The number of okapis is many times larger than zoologists [not qualified by "some"] had previously believed it to be
