0% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 0 sessions
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 Edward’s argument as a response to Teresa’s 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 Teresa’s 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 Teresa’s argument because it does not address the fundamental issue of whether space activities should have priority over other

What was cut out in the answer (E)? Can you recopy & repaste?

I think (D) is the best choice. E & C are runner ups.

(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

OA is D.

(D) It does not meet Teresa’s point because it assumes that there is no serious impediment to transporting people into space, but this was the issue raised by Teresa.

Theresa was talking about the cost incurred and she doesnt refer to anything to do with transporting people into space. so how can we say that Edward argument doesnt meet Theresa's point???

I went with D before seeing the OA.

"Manned spaceflight" would be the part of Theresa's statement that has to do with transporting people into space. If it's not economically feasible, then that would be a serious impediment.

i too went for D, E was tricky, but D is clearly better, one is talking about unmanned vs manned flights while edward is talking about reliability of manned flights vs other manned flights

Edward disagrees with Theresa by giving an evidence of "reliability: two accidents in twenty-five years"

So I think "C" is the answer
