My take is A.

This is an inference/conclusion question, so I think A is correct.

Re: The Mc Tosh tyre Company uses a special type of tyre that [#permalink] New post 22 Aug 2013, 15:07
I would go for C.

Fact: The Mc Tosh tyre Company uses a special type of tyre that does not get punctured easily. It is the only company in the U.S. which offers such tyres.
Fact: Some other tyre manufacturers in the U.S. import such tyres from Europe where it is produced by some companies.
Fact: Now some U.S. based manufacturers are pondering over the idea of producing such tyres.

At least some companies in the U.S. will soon start producing tyres, which do not get punctured easily.
Wrong. TEMPTING, but "pondering" does not mean "WILL SOON start producing". The question stem requires us to "properly conclude", thus A is not a solid conclusion.

At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres.
Wrong. This is a fact, not a main point.

Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology.
Correct IMO, The stimulus mentions the Mc Tosh tyre as the only company offers special tyres. However, this technology is quite popular in Europe where some companies can produce such tyre. Thus, we can infer that tyre technology in Europe develops quicker than that in the U.S.

Europe is the only place from where American manufacturers imports tyres which do not get punctured easily.
Wrong. Nothing about "only place".

American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles.[/quote]
Wrong. Nothing about "demand better tyres".

Waiting for OA.

At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres. yes - we can conclude from the fact
Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology. no - Like european companies, Mc Tosh company also produce such tyres so we dont who is good
Europe is the only place from where American manufacturers imports tyres which do not get punctured easily. no
American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles. no - out of scope

Not sure of the answer ..

At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres.
B - restates the premise

Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology.
Also we cannot conclude that Europe is ahead of US in tyre technology - there may be some other feature in US tyre that offer better performance than Europe. We cannot assume it.

Can we select the thing that is stated in premise for conclusion quesitons????

- What we know from the passage is that the Some US based companies are PONDERING over the idea, but We don't know whether ANYONE will start manufacturing soon. Thus Incorrect.

B) At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres.
Clearly mentioned in the stimuli "Europe where it is produced by some companies". Thus Correct

C) Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology.
Just based on technology of one type of tyres, we can not conclude that Europe is ahead of US in tyre technology. Thus Incorrect

D) Europe is the only place from where American manufacturers imports tyres which do not get punctured easily.
We know that importers import tyres from EUROPE , but we can't conclude that Europe is only importer. Thus Incorrect

E) American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles.
What is the definition of BETTER? We don't know for sure from the stimuli. Thus Incorrect

Re: The Mc Tosh tyre Company uses a special type of tyre that [#permalink] New post 22 Aug 2013, 22:17
I agree with you that the answer choice should be (B). Here is my reasoning:

(A) At least some companies in the U.S. will soon start producing tyres, which do not get punctured easily. -From the stimulus, we don't know whether US companies besides Mc Tosh tyre Company will produce the tyres. We are only given the fact that some US companies are pondering over the idea of producing such tyres.
(B) At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres. - This can be directly inferred from the stimulus, which states, "Some other tyre manufacturers in the U.S. import such tyres from Europe where it is produced by some companies."
(C) Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology. - We don't know this fact because the stimulus doesn't state anything about it. Alternatively, more companies in Europe produce this type of tyre than US counterpart does. From this fact, we can not infer that Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology.
(D) Europe is the only place from where American manufacturers imports tyres which do not get punctured easily. - We simply don't know this fact. However, if the stimulus were to state, "ALL other tyre manufacturers in the U.S. import such tyres from Europe where it is produced by some companies," this choice would be correct.
(E) American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles. -The stimulus does not say anything about American vehicle owner so this choice is incorrect.

---- The U.S. based manufacturers are pondering .. that does not mean they will necessarily start to produce..!!

At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres.
---- Some other tyre manufacturers in the U.S. import such tyres from Europe where it is produced by some companies--- This is a good one..!!! Correct...

Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology.
---- If many companies product tyres in Europe as compared to U.S , that does not mean Europe is far ahead than U.S in terms of technology.. Also, we don't know about the technology used to product the tyre in both the countries.

Europe is the only place from where American manufacturers imports tyres which do not get punctured easily.
---- "Only" is nowhere mentioned in the argument...

American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles.
----American vehicle owners nowhere mentioned.. out of Scope

My take B....

Thanks,
Jai

Clearly an inference question. I would go with option E.
Since the demand for such tyres is increasing, therefore other tyre manufacturers in U.S. import them from Europe and are pondering over the idea of producing such tyres

looks like option B is correct answer, but is it not restating the premise. And not concluding anything.

In must be true or find the conlusion questions we have to look for an answer that is definitely true. No maybes. Ans choice B clearly states a fact that is a must be true. You cannot contradict that for it is a fact. Other choices are assuming a lot.
A)At least some companies in the U.S. will soon start producing tyres, which do not get punctured easily. This is clearly wrong because we don't know if the companies will produce tires or not. It's stated in the argument that Now some U.S. based manufacturers are pondering over the idea of producing such tyres. Note the use of the word Pondering. They haven't decided as yet and are just thinking about it, hence incorrect.
B)At least some companies in Europe manufacture such tyres. Explained above and correct
C)Europe is far ahead than the U.S. in terms of tyre technology. No where in the argument it says that Europe is far ahead of U.S in terms of tyre technology. There is too much assuming in this. Maybe Europe is far ahead of U.S for those tires which don't get punctured, but maybe U.S produces those tires that are very very durable and can go on for a long time. Incorrect
D)Europe is the only place from where American manufacturers imports tyres which do not get punctured easily. Clearly Wrong.
E)American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles. Out Of Scope.

I must admit that I do not like this particular problem. mahendru1992 is correct that on these problems we want to draw a conclusion that "must be true" based on the premises in the argument. On the GMAT, these "must be true" answers will not be simple restatements of a premise like we see here. The conclusions you will be asked to draw will be (at times very weak) assertions that flow from the premises. Here is a example framework: For the main event to take place, sub-events A & B must happen first. Sub-event A is virtually assured, but sub-event B is doubtful. What can we conclude? That the main event is in doubt...

I was stuck with B & D for long time. "Some other tyre manufacturers in the U.S. import such tyres" that piece of statement says that some US companies imports such tyres from Europe. I feel that, this means no other US companies import such tyres from any other place. So, D can be correct.
One important thing is, we need to find a proper conclusion. Answer B seems to just restate what is mentioned in the question. So, Answer for me is D.

Re: The Mc Tosh tyre Company uses a special type of tyre that [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2014, 09:37
The only logical answer is B because

A: Pondering does not equal Will
C: Way too aggressive statement and can be refuted in many ways
D: Some US companies import from Europe... not ALL
E: Not related at all

However my problem with answer B is that US import tyre from Europe where the tyre is produced by some companies. This does NOT ALWAYS mean the tyre is produced in Europe or companies in Europe produce them. It is POSSIBLE that Europe imported from somewhere else or made finishing touches on the product and then export to the US. But B would be my choice if I see this question on the exam.

I am sorry to say i agree with E.

Option A nd B both states the Premise. What can be concluded from the passage is.

Read out the last sentence " Some other tyre manufacturers in the U.S. import such tyres from Europe where it is produced by some companies. Now some U.S. based manufacturers are pondering over the idea of producing such tyres ". Why the companies are interested to manufacture tyres at USA ? Because of increased demand

So read the option D - American vehicle owners demand better tyres for their vehicles.

Because of increased demand they need are pondering to manufacture tyres.

Hence OA- E

Please correct the OA

Thanks

I think with answer E, you're making a few assumptions outside the context of the argument.

1. You are assuming that these tires are for American vehicle owners. (It's a possibility but could also be for the Police, Army vehicles, Trucking companies who may prefer long lasting tires...etc)

2. You are assuming this special tyre is better. It's a tyre that doesn't get punctured easily but doesn't mean it's better than other types of tyre. Does it work well in the snow? Has a strong gripe on the road? Perform suitable for race track? There are run-flat tires in the market now that can keep going for hundreds of miles even if it's punctured. I don't think there is enough information.

I stand with B
