Wide dissemination of wireless networks in cities is a practical way to meet the needs of city households, schools and businesses. Rural communities have found that wireless networks are both more reliable and cheaper than land-based networks.

Which of the following would most likely be cited by a supporter of the argument?
Urban areas do not pose additional problems for the effective operation of wireless networks.
Wireless networks work far better where population density is low.
Iceland, a very rural country, successfully uses wireless networks.
The expenses of wireless transmission in areas with large buildings is much higher.
Poor neighborhoods have less access to cable internet than do educators or businesses.

HOW AND WHY?PLEASE EXPLAIN...

Argument is:
- wireless is good in rural areas.
- would therefore be good in urban areas

This argument is quite weak. The first reaction is "but what works in rural areas may not work in cities"! A nicely resolves this issue.

Argument is now:
- wireless is good in rural areas.
- no obstacles to transferring this to urban areas
- would therefore be good in urban areas

A. The answer to the question must support the point that wireless networks should be used in even urban areas.

premise:Wide dissemination of wireless networks in cities is a practical way to meet the needs of city households, schools and businesses.

Another Premise talks about the benefits of wireless networks in rural areas.

The supporter of the argument would most likely agree that even in urban areas they can be successfully implemented and can be benefitted.

+1 for A.

B is essentially out of scope. Even if it were in scope, B would in effect, weaken the argument. It says wireless networks work better in rural communities(low density) than in urban environment. While the conclusion is the Wireless networks should be widely used in urban environment.

Two or three things to consider, firstly in such instances more than premise and conclusion identification it is more Imp to understand what the argument is stating, secondly automatically eliminate those answers where one of the premises are being weakened. Concentrate on the answer choice which strengthens either both or doesn't weaken both. A meets that criteria.

I don't think scope matters here. We are bringing outside information "in" to strengthen the argument.

The much much bigger issue is the weakening, which you discussed.
