The government-owned gas company has begun selling stoves and other gas appliances to create a larger market for its gas. Merchants who sell such products complain that the competition will hurt their businesses. That may well be; however, the government-owned gas company is within its rights. After all, the owner of a private gas company might will decide to sell such appliances and surely there would be nothing wrong with that.

Which one of the following principles, if valid, most helps justify the reasoning above?

(A) Government-owned companies have the right to do whatever private businesses have the right to do.
(B) A government should always take seriously the complaints of merchants.
(C) Private businesses have not right to compete with government monopolies.
(D) There is nothing wrong with a government-owned company selling products so long as owners of private companies do not complain.
(E) There is nothing wrong with private companies competing against each other.

I guess (A).

Hi MA,

One small suggestion. when you post CR questions please use the following format for the subject/tittle.

verbal catogory followed actual tittle.

for example :
CR The Govt Owned
SC The Govt Owned
RC The Govt Owned

Thanks,
Anand.

I concur. I have changed several titles for you MA, but I'd appreciate if you could include the type of your questions when you post them. :)

Yes, please include the question category with your posts as suggested above. I believe the latest string of questions by MA come from some LSAT book.

I am changing the tittle as we speak. But it is a pain.

These CR's are far easier than the ones from Saurya.
Are they both from ETS LSATs?. Does any one know?.
