The argument in the passage proceeds by
(A)Attempting to justify one position by demonstrating that an opposition is
based on erroneous information.
(B)Establishing a general principle that it then uses to draw a conclusion
about a particular case
(C)Dismissing a claim made about the present on the basis of historical
(D)Assuming that if all members of a category have a certain property then
all things with that property belong to the category
(E)Presenting evidence that a past phenomenon is more similar to one than
the other of two present day
A.) Even I thought this to be the answer till I read the other options. I think this option is not correct. Though the author doesn't agree with the evolutionary theory about dinosaurs, he doesn't demonstrates this by providing evidences that dinosaurs are not cold-blooded
He demonstrates this by providing evidences that dinosaurs are actually warm
There is difference in the way you're citing evidences. Isn't it?Analogy
One way: He's not a good boy. ---> This indirectly indicates that I am good.
Other way: I am a good boy
B.) He's not establishing any general principle. Discard it.
C.) The author is actually doing just opposite. He uses present to dimiss claim about past.
D.) Rubbish. Give me a break. Have a kit-kat! He discusses about some
and not all
dinosaurs. Still, it's not the main point.
E.) Looks fine to me based on explanation cited in option A.)
is my choice.
Hope that helps.
