### HideShow timer Statistics

A salesperson who makes a sale does not change the desires of the customer. Rather, the salesperson finds out what these desires are and then convinces the customer that a particular product will satisfy them. Persuading people to vote for a politician to whom they are initially indifferent is not significantly different. After discovering what policies the prospective voter would like to see in place, one tries to __________________

Which one of the following 1nost logically completes the argument?

(A) show that the opponents of the politician in question do not favor all of those policies
(B) disguise any difference between the policies the politician supports and the policies supported by other candidates
(C) convince the voter that the policies favored by the politician in question are preferable to those favored by the voter
(D) demonstrate that the politician is a person of outstanding character and is interested in some of the same issues as the voter
(E) persuade the voter that voting for the politician in question is the best way to get these policies adopted

(A) show that the opponents of the politician in question do not favor all of those policies
- ok...not all still some. So, out

(B) disguise any difference between the policies the politician supports and the policies supported by other candidates
- irrelevant

(C) convince the voter that the policies favored by the politician in question are preferable to those favored by the voter
-opposite

(D) demonstrate that the politician is a person of outstanding character and is interested in some of the same issues as the voter
- being interested and having an outstanding character is not the issue

(E) persuade the voter that voting for the politician in question is the best way to get these policies adopted
- parallel with the first part of the argument

Thus, IMO E.

Argument says that salesperson technique is applied in same manner by politicians to convince people

We need to find an choice by which politicians can convince voter to vote in his favour

A-wrong as we don't know how much policy adoption is sufficient to convince voter to vote

B-differences are not being talked about

C-irrelevant

D-character and is not part of argument so out

E - correct as it conveys correctly the motive of persuading as salesman do and intent of argument also

Give kudos if it helps
