Traces of cultivated emmer wheat have been found among the earliest agricultural remains of many archeological sites in Europe and Asia. The only place where the wild form of emmer wheat has been found growing is a relatively narrow strip of southwest Asia. Since the oldest remains of cultivated emmer wheat yet found are from village sites in the same narrow strip, it is clear that emmer wheat was first domesticated somewhere in that strip.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthen the arguerment?

A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkon, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia.

B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains.

C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated.

D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture.

E) It is very diffucult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia.

Which of the following, if, true, most strengthen the arguerment?

A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkon, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia.-- Irrelevant, not emmer

B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains.
Weakens argument as it could be domesticated anywhere witin reason

C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated.--Nutrition is Irrelevant to argument of where it was cultivated

D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture.- Note thisstrengthens as it indicates the wheat was already gorwing there and nothing changed so it could easily be domesticated there.

E) It is very diffucult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia. - this does not relate to the argument. It is bringing in another type of grain. We already know we are discussing emmer

D- thanks good CR.

(A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkorn, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia.
>> Not relevant. We are considering only emmer wheat.
(B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains.
>>This is not related to the origins ot emmer wheat
(C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated.
>> Not related.
(D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture.
>> Yes, This stengthens the argument.
(E) It is very difficult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia.
>> This weakens the argument.

Expert's post
I agree with all the above posters so won't go too much into detail breaking down the answer choices, but for FQ-- the argument is laid out this way:

Cult. EW traces found all over Europe/Asia
Wild EW found only in narrow strip of Asia (note the shift here from traces of PAST EW to what is CURRENTLY found growing--this is a huge jump to make)
Oldest EW traces in same strip
Therefore, EW first cult in same strip

FQ, the reason why D strengthens the argument is that it controls for a condition that could vary dramatically. What if wild emmer wheat is only found now in that narrow strip because 10 years ago a volcano erupted there and wild emmer wheat really likes to grow in volcanic ash? (That's a silly and extreme example, but I hope it illustrates my point). If the climate has been the same ever since wild wheat became domesticated, then it's less likely that the wild emmer wheat--which we only have evidence of in the *present moment*--came here later. It's like the control condition in a scientific experiment---control as much as you can so you can isolate the variable you're looking closely at.

If you didn't have a "gut" reaction like MC did, you can still use the scope of the argument, as mads did, to quickly eliminate A, B, and C. Choice D makes the conditions around the argument more precise, choice E makes the conditions muddier (and therefore weakens).

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

(A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkorn, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia. Out of scope einkon's evaluation can't help to find the place where domestication of emmer was done first.
(B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains. If it was easy to domesticate the emmer wheat then the probability of it being domesticated in "narrow strip" would be same as it being domesticated anywhere else
(C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated. Nutritious??...out of scope
(D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture.
(E) It is very difficult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia. If this is true then it will weaken the argument!!

Please help to justify the correct answer.
Thanks

B says, wild wheat could be easily domesticated. That means no need of major changes in temparature, land etc. If that is the case, is it not possible that domestication happened in narrow strip?


C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated.

If you can't explain your answer, we have nothing to learn from you ....

A good way to handle this question is to think of problems with the argument as you read. My initial thought was "climate change would defeat the argument". Since there was a choice about climate change, and all other choices seemed irrelevant, I went with D.

Argument: Traces of cultivated emmer wheat found in Europe and Asia.
Wild form of emmer wheat found growing in southwest Asia.
Emmer wheat was first domesticated somewhere in that strip.


(A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkorn, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia.

Doesn't strengthen.

(B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains.

Doesn't strengthen.

(C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated.

Doesn't strengthen

(D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture.

Stregthens the argument which says Emmer wheat was domesticated in that strip becuase climatic changes have been minimal from the time duration of Wild Emmer wheat to a domesticated cultivated Emmer wheat.

(E) It is very difficult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia.

Doesn't strengthen

Excellent question! After 2 min of thinking I selected D simply because it is the only question that does not weaken the argument! I still cannot understand how D actually strenghten the argument, but it does not matter: D is vague answer, but all the other answers are just WRONG.

Agree with Vorskl D is the best answer here. It does not weaken the answer and instead says that the climatic conditions did not change. So we are ruling out a possibility that could weaken the passage, in other words we are more tilted toward strenthening the passage by choosing this answer. Hence, correct answer.

---- Argument is strong.Hence defender answer choice will suffice the conclusion.
---- Conclusion intends that the emmer wheat was domesticated in the 'strip'.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

(A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkorn, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia. --- Out of scope.
(B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains. -- Intention suggests that Wild Emmer can be domesticated.But it dosen't match with the conclusion. A possible SHELL GAME answer. Hence, POE.

(C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated. -- Out of scope.

(D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture. -- Meaning that the conditions have helped Wild Emmer domestication. Hold it.
(E) It is very difficult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia. -- Opposite answer. POE.

Please help to justify the correct answer.
Thanks


Hence IMO D.

thank you.

Windofchange,

Let me try this one again :)

The conclusion of this passage is - it is clear that emmer wheat was first domesticated somewhere in that strip.

(A) The present-day distribution of another wild wheat, einkorn, which was also domesticated early in the development of agriculture, covers a much larger area of southwest Asia.We are not concerned with the growth of einkorn or the areas that it covers
(B) Modern experiments show that wild emmer wheat can easily be domesticated so as to yield nearly as well as traditionally domestic strains.this statement talks about the process of domestication, this is irrelevant to our discussion of location of the wheat grown
(C) At the time when emmer wheat was first cultivated, it was the most nutritious of all the varieties of grain that were then cultivated.Again, nutrition is irrelevant.
(D) In the region containing the strip where wild emmer wheat has been found, climatic conditions have changed very little since before the development of agriculture.This option rules out the possibility that climatic conditions could cause any change in the strip. This implies that one event/possibility that could possibly weaken the conclusion is actually being removed here . Hence, strengthens the conclusion of the passage.This is the best answer.
(E) It is very difficult, without genetic testing, to differentiate the wild form of emmer wheat from a closely related wild wheat that also grows in southwest Asia.This one talks only about wild wheat testing. Not really tied to conclusion.

I will go for D....If climatic conditions changes in that narrow strip then it is possible that emmer wheat can not be domesticated...So by assuming D we strengthen conclusion.

Narrowed down to B and D.

I will go with D …
Since the oldest remains of cultivated emmer wheat yet found are from village sites in the same narrow strip …. Its not due to any climatic changes in between, as climatic conditions have changed very little …So emmer wheat has been culitivated from long time
