Advocates of a large-scale space-defense research project conclude that it will represent a net benefit to civilian business. They say that since government-sponsored research will have civilian applications, civilian businesses will reap the rewards of government-developed technology.

Each of the following, if true, raises a consideration arguing against the conclusion above, except:

(A) The development of cost-efficient manufacturing techniques is of the highest priority for civilian business and would be neglected if resources go to military projects, which do not emphasis cost efficiency.

(B) Scientific and engineering talent needed by civilian business will be absorbed by the large-scale project.

(C) Many civilian businesses will receive subcontracts to provide materials and products needed by the research project.

(D) If government research money is devoted to the space project, it will not be available for specifically targeted needs of civilian business, where it could be more efficiently used.

(E) The increase in taxes or government debt needed to finance the project will severely reduce the vitality of the civilian economy.

--> so if resources go to military projects, civilian biz can't achieve its highest priority ---> civilian biz is harmed ---> against the conclusion --> out.

(B) Scientific and engineering talent needed by civilian business will be absorbed by the large-scale project.
--->again, civilian biz is harmed ---> against the conclusion ---->out.

(C) Many civilian businesses will receive subcontracts to provide materials and products needed by the research project.
----> civilian biz gains sth here ----> not against the conclusion ---> keep it.

(D) If government research money is devoted to the space project, it will not be available for specifically targeted needs of civilian business, where it could be more efficiently used.
----> civilian biz is harmed --->against the conclusion --->out

(E) The increase in taxes or government debt needed to finance the project will severely reduce the vitality of the civilian economy.
----> civilian biz is harmed --->against the conclusion ----> out.

Only C stands.

In all the options except C, there is some amount of dissatisfaction with the way things are done now..

Modify the question to avoid confusion:

Each of the following, if true, raises a consideration arguing against the conclusion above, except: (too confusing) :madd

Instead:

Which of the following, if true, raises a consideration arguing for the conclusion above? (Easy) :kill

Only (C) strengthens the conclusion.

Good going guys .. I was pretty easy
OA is C

This question was straight from an old ETS GMAT exam.

All I changed was the case from EXCEPT to except . Noone fell for it :) Great going :)
Sometimes we miss to read it and end up spending more time than required and end up getting a wrong answer.
