What is the OA? My ans is E. This is a method of resoning based question. So we need to find out an ans choice of which each part is correct.
Premise:Clearly the Sun's ....on earth
Premise: Contratry to accepted ....among metrologists.
Conclusion: Changes in the Sun’s luminosity correlate exceedingly well with average land temperatures on Earth
Premise: Any professional meteorologist will tell you that in a system as complicated as that giving rise to the climate, no significant aspect can be controlled by a single variable.
Conclusion: I disagree
A: supporting a conclusion about a specific case by invoking a relevant generalization - Meterologist doesnot support the conclusion of Statician. Instead it opposes it.Wrong ans
B: producing a single counterexample that establishes that a generalization is false as state - No where in the argument did metrologist provide any example nor did it generalize anything.
C: reanalyzing a correlation as reflecting the multiple effects of a single cause
reanalyzing a correlation - correct; mentioned in the argument
reflecting the multiple effects of a single cause - opposite is mentioned in the argument(single cause - sun, effects not mentioned)
D: rejecting a conclusion because it is a proposition that cannot be experimentally tested - info about experimental tests is not present in the argument
E: pointing out that potentially unfavorable evident has been systematically neglected - Correct Ans
I have come to this ans but still i have some doubt on the usage of unfavorable. Please provide the OA
Kudos always encourages me
