18. 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.

I will go with D simply because E seems to be out of scope to me - National Budget?!! What about private spaceflights? Otherwise I agree with the person who says that one is talking economics and the other is talking safety/reliability.

E assumes that all manned space flight missions are financed by the government (national budget), but what about private spaced funded programs? http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/10/0 ... tempt.cnn/

Definately D.

The resonse deosn't address the issue raised, so I was left with D and E. E is clearly out of scope. However, D (in my opinion) does not appear to be a compelling argument.

What is the Official Explanation.

I got E, but after reading D it seems more appreopriate. E is just another trap. The find the wording in D is very cryptic.
