BOOKMARKED
Although parapsychology is often considered a pseudoscience, it is in fact a genuine scientific enterprise, for it uses scientific methods such as controlled experiments and statistical tests of clearly stated hypotheses to examine the questions it raises.

The conclusion above is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed?

(A) If a field of study can conclusively answer the questions it raises, then it is a genuine science.
(B) Since parapsychology uses scientific methods, it will produce credible results.
(C) Any enterprise that does not use controlled experiments and statistical tests is not genuine science.
(D) Any field of study that employs scientific methods is a genuine scientific enterprise.
(E) Since parapsychology raises clearly statable questions, they can be tested in controlled experiments.

How should one weigh for C and D??


Simple rule that gmat follows:

If A implies B.

It is not necessary that negation of A implies negation of B

Has to be D. Stimulus says
Cannot be a PS, it has to be GSE because it uses SM.
What is assumed? That Any field of study that uses SM is a GSE

Perfect
Hope it helps

There seems to be a lot of confusion between C and D.

According to the Powerscore CR Bible - If it's a cause/effect relationship, in this case, "if it uses x then it is a genuine scientific enterprise" is our cause/effect relationship. If you show that the negative is true, which c does "no experiments therefore not scientific" -- why is that wrong?

If X then Y

I stand corrected on this.


Came to the same result.

From the text, I concluded that X (use of experiments and tests) -> Y ("being science")

So normally, if I see an answer choice that gives me the relation: not X -> not Y will be correct.
In C, we have "not X -> not Y" and in D "X -> Y"

Can someone help?

Conclusion : Fact a genuine scientific enterprise
Premise : Methods

A, Repeating the last words
B, Least bothered about results
C, No way stated , Weakens the conclusion
D, The field which follows these methods are genuine
E, Least about Questions

So D

Is my analysis is right!

og 12

I am confused between C and D because PowerScore CR says, for Assumption+causality questions,

If Cause occurs, then Effect occurs is a valid answer choice. [Similar to Option D]
Secondly, If Cause doesn't occur, the effect doesn't occur is a valid answer type [Similar to Option C]

Can anyone please help me ?

Thanks
Voodoo


As you said for most its a choice between C and D. I for one dont think it's a CE problem.
C limits the scope of assumption by using only controlled experiments and statistical tests to prove genuine science.These are just 2 of the many examples of scientific methods. In Powerscore(PS) language , its a Shell game answer.

D. Simple -- use negation test- PS Lang: A field of study that employs scientific methods is not a genuine scientific enterprise.. This weakens the conclusion and hence correct.


Question - how do you know that this is not a CE ? The PS says that when the sentence starts with For, because, caused by etc. it's CE. for it uses scientific



I do not agree with answer C because just by doing experiment will not do.

I'll state my reasoning for C and D.

If we talk about PowerScore CR, you know that we have a Supporter and a Defender. We use a Defender when the argument don't have any gaps, and we just eliminate a possible weakness as in choice (C). But here we have an evident GAP between the premises
parapsychology -> is genuine scientific enterprise
parapsychology -> uses scientific methods.
Missing Assumption: Any field of study that employs scientific methods is a genuine scientific enterprise

Do you see a gap here ? Do you see a connection between scintific methods and genuine enterprise ? NO
So we need a Supporter as (D) to fill the gap.

(C) Any enterprise that does not use controlled experiments and statistical tests is not genuine science.
(D) Any field of study that employs scientific methods is a genuine scientific enterprise.

Although parapsychology is often considered a pseudoscience, it is in fact a genuine scientific enterprise, for it uses scientific methods such as controlled experiments and statistical tests of clearly stated hypotheses to examine the questions it raises.

Conclusion: parapsychology is a genuine science
Premise : parapsychology uses scientific methods

The conclusion above is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed?

(A) If a field of study can conclusively answer the questions it raises, then it is a genuine science.
This options is out of scope as the premise doesn't say about conclusively answering the question.

(B) Since parapsychology uses scientific methods, it will produce credible results.
This options is out of scope as the premise doesn't say about credible results answering the question.

(C) Any enterprise that does not use controlled experiments and statistical tests is not genuine science.
The option is incorrect as "statistical tests" and "Controlled Experiments" are just two methods of scientific methods. There might be other methods that might be employed to prove the hypothesis using scientific methods

(D) Any field of study that employs scientific methods is a genuine scientific enterprise.
This is the assumption as it connects the scientific methods to a genuine scientific enterprise.

(E) Since parapsychology raises clearly statable questions, they can be tested in controlled experiments.
This option takes the argument one step further and is not an assumption.

Hi Experts,
Can you please elaborate POE (C vs D) based on necessary vs sufficient condition.
I read through trailing answers and am convinced with usage of 'because' in case
of 'for it uses' in original sentence but does not conditional statement needs to be if ..
then ..construction and not causal reasoning format?

The conditional aspect of the author's argument is not given in the passage but, rather, is implied by the correct answer choice (D): If a field of study employs scientific methods, then it is a genuine scientific enterprise. If we assume that conditional statement to be true, then we can properly reason that parapsychology is a genuine scientific enterprise because it uses scientific methods.

Employing scientific methods is sufficient but not necessary for being a genuine scientific enterprise. Consider the following example: Jon is an athlete because he is a basketball player. Being a basketball player is sufficient but necessary for being an athlete. Just because someone is NOT a basketball player does not mean he or she is NOT an athlete. Similarly, employing scientific methods does not have to be the ONLY requirement sufficient for being a genuine scientific enterprise. Thus, choice (C) is not a required assumption and can be eliminated.

Clearly between C & D.. "controlled experiments and statistical tests" are just 2 examples of "scientific methods" but the argument holds true for other scientific methods that are not stated. Therefore instead of choosing C (that ONLY points to the 2 examples of scientific methods), D is a better choice as it says "scientific methods" it is more complete. Hope I am clear in my understanding, since I am not an expert by any stretch of imagination.

Although parapsychology is often considered a pseudoscience, it is in fact a genuine scientific
enterprise, for it uses scientific methods such as controlled experiments and statistical tests of clearly
stated hypotheses to examine the questions it raises. The conclusion above is properly drawn if which of the
following is assumed?
(A) If a field of study can conclusively answer the questions it raises, then it is a genuine science.
no discussion about conclusive has been done in the argument.
(B) Since parapsychology uses scientific methods, it will produce credible results.
Credibility is not considered in the argument
(C) Any enterprise that does not use controlled experiments and statistical tests is not genuine science.
There might be other scientific methods also available to prove that it is genuine sciences
(D) Any field of study that employs scientific methods is a genuine scientific enterprise.
The only criteria considered here is that to be a part of genuine science it must use scientific methods. This options uses such criteria.
Another assumptions could be which says that “No field of study is genuine scientific enterprise if it doesn’t employ scientific methods”.

(E) Since parapsychology raises clearly statable questions, they can be tested in controlled experiments.
It has already been stated that parapsychology can be tested in controlled experiments.So it can’t be an assumption.Other than that,we are not sure whether parapsychology raises statble questions.

Although parapsychology is often considered a pseudoscience, it is in fact a genuine scientific enterprise, for it uses scientific methods such as controlled experiments and statistical tests of clearly stated hypotheses to examine the questions it raises.

Background - ( We are concerned about the definition of a scientific enterprise and not the conditions of doing it.)

The conclusion above is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed?

(A) If a field of study can conclusively answer the questions it raises, then it is a genuine science.
Answer questions conclusively is not the whole motto of it. But to prove it by scientific methods.

(B) Since parapsychology uses scientific methods, it will produce credible results.
We are not concerned about the credible results also.

(C) Any enterprise that does not use controlled experiments and statistical tests is not genuine science.
A tempting answer but look at the word entreprise? Are we are talking about what is entreprise and what is not or are we talking about the what is science and what is not.

(D) Any field of study that employs scientific methods is a genuine scientific enterprise.
Look at my background information and relate to it.Just rephrases the definition.

(E) Since parapsychology raises clearly statable questions, they can be tested in controlled experiments.
Are we concerned about the environment of the experiments?

(E) Since parapsychology raises clearly statable questions, they can be tested in controlled experiments.

Error Analysis:

The conclusion is that it is Genuine Scientific Enterprise.
Premise:since parapsychology employs scientific methods to examine the questions it raises
We need to find an assumption.

Option A- The argument doesn't talk about conclusive results. Out of scope.
Option B- Will-extreme. Eliminate. We can't say if it will produce credible results.
Option C- Reverse. Eliminate.
Option D- Correct. Negate this Option, If any field of study that employs scientific methods is not a GSE, then the conclusion falls apart.
Option E- We don't know if it can be tested. Out of scope.

Therefore the answer is Option D.

The logic rules you have mentioned here are correct but option 'C' actually is Not X, then not Y and is thus incorrect.
