Teresa:
1) Manned spaceflights cannot compete economically with other means of accomplishing objectives of spaceflight
2) Therefore, manned spaceflight does not have a future <- conclusion
Edward:
1) Manned spaceflight has a better record of reliability far as modes of human transportation are concerned
2) Thus manned spaceflight definitely has a positive future. <- conclusion
Which of the following is the best logical evaluation of Edward’s argument as a response to Teresa’s argument?

(E) It fails to respond to Teresa’s argument because it does not address the fundamental issue of whether space activities should have priority over other claims on the national budget.
- This is the one. Edward argues on the ground of reliability and not the economics required to fund such flights.

E it is.


Hi, ywilfred, I think what choice E talked is too far.

reliability <> space activities.
economics <> other claims on the national budget

it's a little ambiguous.

Hi, HongHu,

In this question each one proposed his own assertion. But Edward didn't stress reliability outweighed economic consideration.

I think banerjeea's opinion is right.

Edward proposed the reliability consideration and assumed that there is no serious impediment (economic consideration) to transport people into space, but the economic issue was raised by Teresa.


Yes, I agree it can be argued this way. In fact E's point is definitely wrong because while T is comparing manned spaceship with other means of space flight, E compares reliability of human transportation. If the topic of discussion is whether manned spaceflight has potential as a means of space flight then E's definitely totally out of the point, not so much in that he made certain assumptions, but in that he has totally missed the point. Compare the different choices given though, I suppose D is the closest.

I think T is comparing whether it is economical to send people into space, and not comparing whether alternative ways to send people to space is cheaper than the current one. The stand is "It's no longer economical to send peopel into space, whatever the mode might be". E on the otherhand touches on the reliability of such flights. So yes, D is correct.
