Very straightforward answer. D.
Reviewer: The Plain Truth , a biography of the philosopher Socrates, states that Socrates was both very wise and very poor. The book must be incorrect, because a man possessing such wisdom would surely find a way to avoid poverty.
Which of the following best shows the most significant flaw in the reviewer's argument?
-Every individual who is wise desires to be a philosopher. Irrelevant
-Socrates would not have been executed by the city of Athens if he had not been influential. VERY Irrelevant.
-Conceptions of wealth vary over time, and what is now considered poor would have been very wealthy in Socrates' time. Shell Game. This states that he might not have actually been poor
-Many people who are considered wise are too preoccupied with pursuing wisdom to care about their economic status. Correct. Provides alternate explanation and hence points out flaw.
-Although Socrates was not wealthy, he had many wealthy friends who willingly took care of him. Irrelevant
+1 Kudos if you like the question.
