Question Stats:

100% (02:58) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 0 sessions
. The proportion of women among students enrolled in
higher education programs has increased over the past
decades. This is partly shown by the fact that in
1959, only 11 percent of the women between twenty
and twenty-one were enrolled in college, while in
1981, 30 percent of the women between twenty and
twenty-one were enrolled in college.

To evaluate the argument above, it would be most
useful to compare 1959 and 1981 with regard to
which of the following characteristics?
(A) The percentage of women between twenty and
twenty-one who were not enrolled in college
(B) The percentage of women between twenty and
twenty-five who graduated from college
(C) The percentage of women who, after attending
college, entered highly paid professions
(D) The percentage of men between twenty and
twenty-one who were enrolled in college
(E) The percentage of men who graduated from high
school
1) Why can't we say 70 percent of women not enrolled in 1959 and 70 percent not enrolled in 1981?

- ETS always has some hard twist in thinking.

Only D gives you a right thing to create the asked proportion.

Stolyar, you should say the flashing sirens for this problem are proportion of women among students. Thus, a good proportion cannot include only females.

I expect more out of you. I got a good chance to get a potentially good verbal score but you have actually gotten a good one!

There's a big difference. :lol: :-D

[quote="Curly05"]. The proportion of women among students enrolled in
higher education programs has increased over the past
decades. This is partly shown by the fact that in
1959, only 11 percent of the women between twenty
and twenty-one were enrolled in college, while in
1981, 30 percent of the women between twenty and
twenty-one were enrolled in college.

To evaluate the argument above, it would be most
useful to compare 1959 and 1981 with regard to
which of the following characteristics?
(A) The percentage of women between twenty and
twenty-one who were not enrolled in college
(B) The percentage of women between twenty and
twenty-five who graduated from college
(C) The percentage of women who, after attending
college, entered highly paid professions
(D) The percentage of men between twenty and
twenty-one who were enrolled in college
(E) The percentage of men who graduated from high
school
It is not good question because all answer is bad
the good answer need to show the change in % of men vs. women enrolled..

A, B,C clearly out for not mention these kind of relation

E and D at least touch the point.

E doesn't even tell you about anything about man enrolled.
D at least talks about that kind of enrolled... so it is better. (even though it is still far from helping us to make any kind of conclusion)

It is a home-made pizza? :lol:

The only inference we can make from the statement is the % of women
who enrolled in a given population(not in a given class) has increase over a period of time.

Only A can make this conclusion.

I agree with bonnyjoy ...the answer should be 'A'.

The question asked is ''To evaluate the argument above, it would be most
useful to compare 1959 and 1981 with regard to
which of the following characteristics? ''

A gives us the requied information.

What I cannot understand how does the proportion of men help us in evaluating the argument.

Can anybody help.

Thanks...!

answer should be D. Percentage of men enrolled can give you an idea about what %age of women--per men--enrolled in 1959 v/s 1981.

The final %age could be the same, mere women %age is not sufficient. It should be compared with men's %age to get an idea whether there was an actual enrollment increase.
