Question Stats:

68% (02:32) correct 32% (00:58) wrong based on 38 sessions
The general availability of high-quality electronic scanners and color printers for
computers has made the counterfeiting of checks much easier. In order to deter such
counterfeiting, several banks plan to issue to their corporate customers checks that
contain dots too small to be accurately duplicated by any electronic scanner currently
available; when such checks are scanned and printed, the dots seem to blend together
in such a way that the word "VOID" appears on the check
A questionable assumption of the plan is that
A. in the territory served by the banks the proportion of counterfeit checks that
are made using electronic scanners has remained approximately constant over
the past few years
B. most counterfeiters who use electronic scanners counterfeit checks only for
relatively large amounts of money
C. the smallest dots on the proposed checks cannot be distinguished visually
except under strong magnification
D. most corporations served by these banks will not have to pay more for the new
checks than for traditional checks
E. the size of the smallest dots that generally available electronic scanners are
able to reproduce accurately will not decrease significantly in the near future.

E coz if the size of dots in current printers get small than small dots in the checks issued by bank can be reproduced.

E. It's not the only assumption in the argument, but of the answers, it's the best.

E.
Good question. Could you give us the source? I look to do more of such questions and will purchase the book (or whatever it is).

And temp33, your desperate plea for a kudos has really moved me! I will give you one!
Thank you,

I am also orienting towards (E), but just for the discussion sake.

Why not (C)?

"E". They have adopted this process to distinguish the original ones from the counterfeit ones assuming that this process will not be imitated in the near future. However if the forgerers are able to mimic this pattern also then this particular technique would fail to achieve the desired result.

Whenever we see something like "presently" or "currently available" in the premise, then we should start thinking about an answer which talks about the future or any tech that can be invented so that the same condition does not prevail in the future. Hence (E) stands out from the rest of the options.
