United States manufacturers currently produce most of the world's solar-power generators--most of which are exported to Europe. However, European manufacturers are emerging and probably will ultimately capture much of the European market. The United States government is funding initiatives intended to encourage use of solar power within the United States. If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States, United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels, since __________.

Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

(A) some United States manufacturers have been substantially increasing their output over the last several years

(B) the efficiency of solar-power generators in converting energy from the Sun into electric power is not improving as fast as it once did

(C) just as European manufacturers enjoy certain competitive advantages in Europe, so do United States manufacturers in the United States

(D) European governments are currently undertaking initiatives to stimulate the use of solar power within Europe

(E) the current market for solar-power generators in the United States is very limited

My Analysis:

Info – 1: United States manufacturers currently produce most of the world's solar-power generators--most of which are exported to Europe.

Info – 2: However, European manufacturers are emerging and probably will ultimately capture much of the European market. (Assumption – It will reduce the US exports to Europe)

Info – 3: The United States government is funding initiatives intended to encourage use of solar power within the United States. If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States, United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels, since __________.

Analysis: Blank space is preceded by since which is the premise indicator, hence we should identify the premise that support the argument conclusion that “United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels”.

Pre-think of answer: There is scope for increase in sales in US market.

Hence I selected answer choice E as it says the current market is limited and with US govt. initiatives it will increase.

But the correct answer choice is C and I am not able to identify the reason for the same.

Please explain what I am missing in my approach.

Hi Dipesh, You did perfect job while analyzing the interrelation among the facts, but just made a subtle error at the end, while analyzing the conclusion.

I am giving below you analysis.

Fact – 1: United States manufacturers currently produce most of the world's solar-power generators--most of which are exported to Europe.
Fact – 2: However, European manufacturers are emerging and probably will ultimately capture much of the European market. (Assumption – It will reduce the US exports to Europe)
Fact – 3: The United States government is funding initiatives intended to encourage use of solar power within the United States.

Conclusion :- If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States, United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels,-------------

We can see in the 3rd fact that Author has stated that the US Govt has taken initiative to boost up sales of solar power in the US. This clearly indicates that the demand for solar power generators is currently not high enough to accommodate the produce of US generator manufacturers. (This is what Choice E says)

Then Author has concluded that if govt's initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar power generators, US manufacturers will probably maintain significant production level. Here the author has assumed that the increased demand of solar power gensets will be fulfilled by supplies of US manufacturers. So next logical premise would eliminate the possibility of fulfillment of increased demand by sources other than US manufacturers. Choice C does that job and hence is the correct answer.

My Analysis:

Info – 1: United States manufacturers currently produce most of the world's solar-power generators--most of which are exported to Europe.

OK

Info – 2: However, European manufacturers are emerging and probably will ultimately capture much of the European market. (Assumption – It will reduce the US exports to Europe)

OK

Info – 3: The United States government is funding initiatives intended to encourage use of solar power within the United States. If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States, United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels, since __________.

After since we need an answer that strenghten the argument in this case.

Analysis: Blank space is preceded by since which is the premise indicator, hence we should identify the premise that support the argument conclusion that “United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels”.

Pre-think of answer: There is scope for increase in sales in US market.

Not properly true, because if you have a competitive advantage you can still maintain your market share and still have your sales constant respect your competitors

Hence I selected answer choice E as it says the current market is limited and with US govt. initiatives it will increase.

But the correct answer choice is C and I am not able to identify the reason for the same.

Please explain what I am missing in my approach.

Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

(A) some United States manufacturers have been substantially increasing their output over the last several years

what is happened until now is not our concern

(B) the efficiency of solar-power generators in converting energy from the Sun into electric power is not improving as fast as it once did

the efficiency is not our concern

(C) just as European manufacturers enjoy certain competitive advantages in Europe, so do United States manufacturers in the United States

US manufcturers want the european market but now maybe is not the same scenario as before. the US M will maintain significant production levels only and only if they have a consistent market share to sell solar power aka competitive advantage

(D) European governments are currently undertaking initiatives to stimulate the use of solar power within Europe

we already know this from the statement

(E) the current market for solar-power generators in the United States is very limited

we have NOT enough information to say this. where did you see this or infer from the stimulus ?? nowhere. moreover, we are talking about the current market BUT we are concerned about the FUTURE market share

Dear Tushar
Will be happy if my post helps you!!!

Think from the point of view that incase the USA consumers start aligning themselves to the European models. In that case incresed production of USA companies will fail in getting a client.
So Option C is a full proof answer to the question at hand.

Hi Archit
I was rooting for e , however e talks about current scenario. It does not fit well. Then C is the obvious choice but the explanations in support of C is not convincing.
Anyways C is the answer, no other options fits well.

Bumping this question, any comments on why E is not the answer.
What I can think of is that E is implicitly stated in the premise, hence should not be considered.

But still, I am not pretty convinced

If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States, United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels, since __________.

If X, then Y since Z

But we have already stated (E) in X so why would we need (E) again in Z, we need something else to fill Z to support the US M.

(C) does that

US Mfgs produce most of the solar power generators and most of them are exported to Europe
European mfgs are coming up and will capture much of the european market.

US Govt is trying to increase demand for solar power generators in US.
Conclusion - US MFGs might be able to maintain prod levels if demand increases in US

Correct answer choice should explain what happens when the demand increases.
Will the demand be fulfilled by US MFGs - maintain productivity
or
Will the demand be fulfilled by European MFGs - US MFGs cannot maintain productivity even when the demand increases

(A) some United States manufacturers have been substantially increasing their output over the last several years - Incorrect. Does not explain what happens when the demand increases.

(B) the efficiency of solar-power generators in converting energy from the Sun into electric power is not improving as fast as it once did - Incorrect. we are not concerned about technology

(C) just as European manufacturers enjoy certain competitive advantages in Europe, so do United States manufacturers in the United States - Correct. Explains why US MFGs will be able to maintain prod level when the demand increases.

(D) European governments are currently undertaking initiatives to stimulate the use of solar power within Europe - Incorrect. does not answer what will happen in US?

(E) the current market for solar-power generators in the United States is very limited - Incorrect. So what ? This does not explain what will happen when the demand increases. Even if the current market is limited and the demand increases, we don't know for sure whether US MFGs will be able to sell their products. This is irrelevant.

Here is my understanding.
The argument seeks something that can strengthen "the United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels". If the US manufacturers need to keep the production level consistent then the increase in sales of European solar-power generators in the European market should not affect the total sales of US solar-power generators(both domestic and european) . That is , the unsold US solar-power generators in European market should find space in domestic market. For this to happen , option (B) seems helpful. While option(E) only weakens the scope.

Does this help ?

IMO C

this is a disguised strengthen question...

E casts doubt on the conclusion and is opposite. How will you maintain significant production levels if the market is very limited

If market is limited production will go down because there is no demand.

Last sentence starts with "If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States ....".
So E becomes irrelevant.
C is should be.

Here is my 2 cents.
This is an Inference question, therefore, we would need an answer that MUST BE TRUE, within the same logic as the clause that precedes it. In this prompt, we have If these initiatives succeed in increasing the demand for solar-power generators in the United States, United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels, since __________.
In other words, we have to justify that the US’ initiatives will succeed because of a certain reason

To summarize,
Fact 1 – US produces the most SPG and exports this to Europe
Fact 2 – Eur markets are emerging, and Eur producers are as well
Therefore, US might lose demand in Eur
Fact 3 – Initiatives are underway to increase demand in US.

Need to prove – US will succeed

(A) some United States manufacturers have been substantially increasing their output over the last several years
- does not necessarily suggest that demand will be sustained as the Eur producers might overtake US when the markets have established themselves
(B) the efficiency of solar-power generators in converting energy from the Sun into electric power is not improving as fast as it once did
- Does not follow in the clause above, if anything, this suggests that the market for solar-power generators as a whole is not feasible in any geographical location
(C) just as European manufacturers enjoy certain competitive advantages in Europe, so do United States manufacturers in the United States
- CORRECT. Suggests that the market can be feasible in the US due to the competitive advantage
- Only answer choice that logically follows from the preceding clause. The other answer choices do not support that there can be a market in the US
(D) European governments are currently undertaking initiatives to stimulate the use of solar power within Europe
- Does not support preceding clause, also does not suggest a result that may follow from increasing the initiatives in the US. If the same is applied in Europe, then so what?
(E) the current market for solar-power generators in the United States is very limited
- It may be true, however, it does not support the phrase that United States manufacturers will probably maintain significant production levels. It does not result to this desired outcome, therefore, we cannot accept this answer.

I Got this answer wrong(E) initially. But now I understand why C.

In E it just states that current market for SP is limited in US. But what if the europeans take the US market? So E cant be the good choice..

But in C, just as Europe has dominancy in Euro. market, US has it's dominancy in US market. Thus indirectly states, Europe cant take US market.. Hope this helps...

aren't we assuming many levels down , sounds like the 4th level of dream that Leonardo di Caprio and his team fallen into in movie Instinct.
I will extend one step further to your assumption to go to level 5 of the dream
In E it just states that current market for SP is limited in US. But what if the europeans take the US market?
and in return USA govt puts more import duties on European SP to save the interests of its domestic manufacturers?
or what if USA manufacturers revamps it SP technology to re overtake European and America market again , if we can assume that European can take over american market than why not the vice versa ?

so far none of the explanation is convincing enough , i feel most of the people have used Answer to write explanation instead explanation to find the answer approach.

Thanks,
Lucky

Europe Consumers (EuC) are buying from US Manufactures (US.M). Why? Because Europe Manufactures (EuM) were not producing enough.
But things are changing now. EuM will produce more which will lead to lesser demand of US Produced Solar Power. Now Why would EuC move to EuM? Maybe there are advantages for buying local such cheap price, lower taxes, govt. support etc.
That is a logical assumption.

What would happen to US.M? Demand of their product will decrease. Which will lead to lower the production.
What US govt. is doing? They are initiating some programs to boost the demand, this also implies that there was not enough demand.
Now more demand in US, but will the US Consumer buy product from US.M? To strengthen this, we have to assume YES. Why? Because like EuC prefers to buy local, from EuM, US Consumer will prefer to buy from US.M (locally)

This is tough one, after reading other explanations I can see why the answer choice (C) is correct. But thinking through on the test will be quite tough.

I think more practice is the solution so that we can learn to look into nooks and corners, which otherwise we miss.
