Space flight [#permalink] New post 19 Oct 2003, 20:27
Teresa: Manned spaceflight does not have a future, since it cannot compete economically with other means of accomplishing the objectives of spaceflight.

Edward: No mode of human transportation has a better record of reliability: two accidents in twenty-five years. Thus manned spaceflight definitely has a positive future.
Which of the following is the best logical evaluation of EdwardтАЩs argument as a response to TeresaтАЩs argument?

(A) It cites evidence that, if true, tends to disprove the evidence cited by Teresa in drawing her conclusion.
(B) It indicates a logical gap in the support that Teresa offers for her conclusion.
(C) It raises a consideration that outweighs the argument Teresa makes.
(D) It does not meet TeresaтАЩs point because it assumes that there is no serious impediment to transporting people into space, but this was the issue raised by Teresa.
(E) It fails to respond to TeresaтАЩs argument because it does not address the fundamental issue of whether space activities should have priority over other claims on the national budget.

the passage says nothing about the national budget, so E goes out of scope.
