3. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City contains several automobiles. Automobiles are means of transportation and are therefore not art. The automobiles should not be in the collection. Which of the following best underlies the reasoning in the argument above.

(A) The automobiles will not be used as transportation because they are in a museum, so they can be counted as art.
(B) Many features of automobiles, like fins, serve no practical purpose and therefore cars can be counted as art
(C) A true artist works without commercial concerns.
(D) Art must be designed without pragmatic utility.
(C) The automobile industry has excessive costs because of focusing on design rather and cost and pragmatism.






4. Time and again it has been shown that students who attend colleges with low faculty/student ratios get the most well-rounded education. As a result, when my children are ready to attend college, I'll be sure they attend a school with a very small student population. Which of the following, if true, identifies the greatest flaw in the reasoning above?


A) A low faculty/student ratio is the effect of a well-rounded education, not its source.
B) Intelligence should be considered the result of childhood environment, not advanced education.
C) A very small student population does not by itself, ensure a low faculty/student ratio.
D) Parental desires and preferences rarely determines a child's choice of a college or university.
E) Students must take advantage of the low faculty/student ratio by intentionally choosing small classes.

3. D - The argument talks about cars used for transportation (practical use and they are designed with that use in mind) and so do not qualify to be called art.
4. C - Low Faculty/Student ratio means that there are more students per one faculty. A school with lesser students does not necessarily mean low student/faculty ratio.

Right?

(A) and (B) are actually counter-arguments that make the case that the cars are in fact art using the reasoning in the argument. The argument states that automobiles cannot be art because they serve a practical purpose. (C) could be stretched to mean that art should not be made with any pragmatic design, but (D) is a better answer. (D) directly establishes that cars are not art because they serve a pragmatic purpose. (E) is a counter-argument to the entire premise of the argument.



(C) The evidence says that students who attend colleges with low faculty/student ratios get well-rounded educations, but the conclusion is that the author will send his kids to colleges with small student populations. Since colleges can have the second without necessarily having the first, (C) is correct.

Wouldn't C be the other way around?

for the second question,why cant (a) be the answer.author feels that
low f/s ratio(cause)->weel rounded education(effect).
While(a) proves a flaw by suggestying that causal relation could be reversed

For Quest 3......IMO D,

In the argument it is stated that- "Automobiles are means of transportation and are therefore not art"

Hence D clearly underlines that - Art must be designed without pragmatic utility.

For Quest 4...IMO C
