10. Something must be done to stop spam. "In early days, people seldom received unsolicited email advertisement"; but now that numerous bulk email software and email address finders are developed to collect email address all around the world. Advertisers use email addresses to market their products and even sell such email lists to other advertisers. As a result, almost everyone ever get junk email, and sometime several and even tens of annoying emails a day. "So, relevant anti-spam regulations should be framed to stop unsolicited advertising".
The two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?
A. Background that the argument depends on and conclusion that can be drawn from the argument.
B. Part of evidence that the argument includes, and inference that can be drawn from this passage.
C. Pre-evidence that the argument depends on and part of evidence that supports the conclusion.
D. Background that argument depends on and part of evidence that supports the conclusion.
E. Pre-evidence that argument includes and a method that helps to supports that conclusion.
1st bold faced part: Earlier XYZ happened but now ...
2nd bold faced part: So MNO should be done (because now ABC takes place)
The 1st one is more like a Background to the arg than a pre-evidence, as it doesnt help to derive the conclusion (B,C,E out)
The 2nd one is a conclusion to the arg rather than an evidence to the conclusion
'll go with D....
here the background is how spam is happenning.i.e advertising...
evidence is given on how advertisers cause spam...
conclusion is stated above...does this look simple??
I'm just back today from my vacation although I'll be gone again this weekend Let's see what is wrong with A and E.
What I don't like in A is that it says the first boldface portion is the "Background that the argument depends on". This is not true because if we read the second, it says: "but now that numerous bulk email software and email address finders are developed to collect email address all around the world". The "but" implies a change from what used to be different. Well, if today people receive numerous emails, it is then understood with the "but" that people used not to receive so many ads emails. Hence, the first portion in boldface is NOT something that the argument depends on.
B is better as the first boldface is merely part of the evidence the argument includes (and by no means essential as A says)
E is talking about a method "supporting" the conclusion. Which method? E is either a conclusion or an inference which could be drawn.
