IMO D

One thing I did was to forget that the question was about FALSE ...just read each choice ....is it Must be TRUE or MUST be False ....in this way ...A,B,C just simple are neither .....D is definitely MUST be False because this is what is stated in the argument


btw: i like your display ...i got a lil distracted by it ..in case my answer is not correct thats my excuse :)

Two things are true of all immoral actions.-> they are accompanied by feelings of guilt.
So, all immoral actions accompany feelings of guilt.
A counters the claim. Hence it should be the right answer.

@ ykaiim

Let me try again.

All immoral actions needs to have two features/subset.
>>>> if they are performed in public, they offend public sensibilities.
>>>> They are accompanied by feelings of guilt.

Let the immoral actions be called A.
So all As (actions..plural) should have two features.

Let the first feature be X >>>> X means >>> Offend public sensibilities...so immoral should affect the public sentiments.
X is only true >>> if M is true, where M is : Immoral act in public,.

So A can have X (Offend public sensibilities), if M is TRUE (Immoral act has been done in public)

Let the second feature be Y >>>> Y means >>> accompanied by feelings of guilt...so immoral should be accompanied by feelings of guilt..

So A will COMPULSORILY have Y (accompanied by feelings of guilt) in all the instances of moral acts.

Look at option A: M is False (Immoral act has NOT been done in public), so X may or not be TRUE.

If X then >>>M,
But if NO M, X may or may not be there.

Given: Y is NOT there.

But every A (immoral act) should have X and Y. and the option A states that Y is not there..!!
so A must be False.

I hope it helps..otherwise revert.

This is Kinda objective logic implemented to subjective case.

very well explained by nverma.

it looked so simple after nverma's explanation.

however, the downside is the ability to quickly apply such objective logic to subjective cases.

Great explanation NVERMA, thank you !

I would like to demonstrate this through an equation

A=M*X+Y, if M=0 -> A=Y - this is true for all A cases (immoral actions).


answer choice A says us that A<>Y (A does not equal to Y), this contradicts the equation A=Y.
