Question no. 144

Archaeologists working in the Andes Mountains recently excavated a buried 4,000-year-old temple containing structures that align with a stone carving on a distant hill to indicate the direction of the rising sun at the summer solstice. Alignments in the temple were also found to point toward the position, at the summer solstice, of a constellation known in Andean culture as the Fox. Since the local mythology represents the fox as teaching people how to cultivate and irrigate plants, the ancient Andeans may have built the temple as a religious representation of the fox.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument is based?

(A) The constellation known as the Fox has the same position at the summer solstice as it did 4,000 years ago.
(B) In the region around the temple, the summer solstice marks the time for planting.
(C) The temple was protected from looters by dirt and debris built up over thousands of years.
(D) Other structural alignments at the temple point to further constellations with agricultural significance.
(E) The site containing the temple was occupied for a significant amount of time before abandonment.

Based on the position of constellation now, the argument is making a conclusion that andeans may have built the temple as a religious representation of the fox ..but to make this prediction one need to be sure of whether the position of constellation was same 4000 yrs ago as it is now ....This pre-thinking leads to A as answer .

First of all, thank you for sharing these questions mate.

Now with the argument, it hinges on the constellation in the sky. Everything else is a significance based on the that constellation.
With that in mind, only answer choice A gives us the essential assumption the author needs to make to draw his conclusion i.e. The constellation was in the same place in the sky 4000 years ago, as it is today.

B - This is already mentioned in the passage, so it could be a trap answer but it's not an assumption.
C - This is Out of Context.
D - In terms of an assumption made by the author, this is irrelevant as this seems to be a fact, and it has nothing to do with the constellation.
E - Irrelevant.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument is based?
A. The constellation known as the Fox has the same position at the summer solstice as it did 4,000 years ago. Correct. Passage has mentioned relation between summer solstice and constellation known in Andean culture as the Fox. This option ensure that constellation was positioned at the time temple was build.
B. In the region around the temple, the summer solstice marks the time for planting. Timing of plantation is not discussed in passage
C. The temple was protected from looters by dirt and debris built up over thousands of years. Out of scope
D. Other structural alignments at the temple point to further constellations with agricultural significance. New information. Not discussed in passage
E. The site containing the temple was occupied for a significant amount of time before abandonment. out of scope


IMO : A

Explanation : marked against the argument

Arrived at the correct answer by negation rule...

The constellation known as the Fox doesn't have the same position at the summer solstice as it did 4,000 years ago.

Thus, the argument -

How does it weaken ? Maybe position is changed , it doesnt mean that they didnt built the temple for the Fox

Quote:
Archaeologists found a 4000 year old temple.
The alignments in the temple and those on a stone point toward the constellation known as the Fox. (They point at that constellation NOW)
Conclusion - Andeans may have built the temple as a religions representation of the fox. (The temple was build 4000 years ago)


We need to find the author's assumption that will strengthen the above argument. In other words, we are trying to find the missing link that will fill the gap between the premises and the conclusion in the argument above. (Look at the quote above)
Only A provides us with the premise that the fox's position in the sky was the same 4000 years ago as it is today.



Hope this helps!

B is out irrelevant

Hi snjainpune,

I'd be happy to clarify this question for you. The answer, simply, is negation, which is turning the answer into its opposite form. If the new answer destroys the argument, this is your answer for the question.

Archaeologists working in the Andes Mountains recently excavated a buried 4,000-year-old temple containing structures that align with a stone carving on a distant hill to indicate the direction of the rising sun at the summer solstice. Alignments in the temple were also found to point toward the position, at the summer solstice, of a constellation known in Andean culture as the Fox. Since the local mythology represents the fox as teaching people how to cultivate and irrigate plants, the ancient Andeans may have built the temple as a religious representation of the fox.

-- The blue is a premise, which builds up to the green, our conclusion.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument is based?

(A) The constellation known as the Fox has the same position at the summer solstice as it did 4,000 years ago. -- The constellation known as the Fox does not have the same position at the summer solstice as it did 4,000 years ago
(B) In the region around the temple, the summer solstice marks the time for planting. -- In the region around the temple, the summer solstice does not marks the time for planting
(C) The temple was protected from looters by dirt and debris built up over thousands of years. -- The temple was not protected from looters by dirt and debris built up over thousands of years.
(D) Other structural alignments at the temple point to further constellations with agricultural significance. -- Other structural alignments at the temple do not point to further constellations with agricultural significance
(E) The site containing the temple was occupied for a significant amount of time before abandonment.The site containing the temple was not occupied for a significant amount of time before abandonment

Based on our conclusion, "the ancient Andeans may have built the temple as a religious representation of the fox.", which one of the above destroys this argument? Option A! This says the temple may have been built for a different system, but is now pointed towards the fox. The rest of the options are, fortunately, out of scope and can thus be eliminated. Does this help?

Awesome, nightblade354! I'll take a shot at this, too... but only because I wrote this two days ago and got distracted before hitting the "submit" button. Bad Ninja. ;)

The conclusion is that "the ancient Andeans may have built the temple as a religious representation of the fox." This conclusion is based on the finding that the temple has alignments pointing towards the position, at the summer solstice, of a constellation.

But this finding is based on the CURRENT alignments. The temple was built 4,000 years ago. What if the constellation has shifted over the course of the last 4,000 years? In that case, the alignment found by the archaeologists would be different than the alignment that existed when the Andeans built the temple. Thus, we would not be able to use the CURRENT alignment to make conclusions about the intentions of the Andeans 4,000 years ago.

I hope that helps!

Thanks everyone. GMATNinja and others: How do we tackle such a question where we encounter some weird terminologies? I heard word solstice for the first time. Also, I couldn't understand the argument itself. This argument appears more complicated than regular Official arguments in terms of language/vocab. Thoughts please?

the key to success on this problem is ability to read. understanding the argument is hard because language is academic and complex. the logic is not very hard.

i have to restudy english more than study gmat.

Archaeologists working in the Andes Mountains recently excavated a buried 4,000-year-old temple containing structures that align with a stone carving on a distant hill to indicate the (1)direction of the rising sun at the summer solstice. Alignments in the temple were also found to (2)point toward the position, at the summer solstice, of a constellation known in Andean culture as the Fox. Since the local mythology represents the fox as teaching people how to cultivate and irrigate plants, the ancient Andeans may have built the temple as a religious representation of the fox.
- Conclusion

The author has concluded that the temple may have been built in honour of FOX . For that we need to need an assumption which will support this conclusion .It is also said the temple points to FOX .If the temple doesnt point to FOX and it position kept changing then how can we conclude that the temple is indeed built in honor of fox .
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument is based?

(A) The constellation known as the Fox has the same position at the summer solstice as it did 4,000 years ago. - Negation -> If the Temple does not point to FOX then we cannot establish that the temple is built to honour fox - Correct answer

(B) In the region around the temple, the summer solstice marks the time for planting - It wont let us establish that temple is built in honor of Fox

(C) The temple was protected from looters by dirt and debris built up over thousands of years - Out of scope

(D) Other structural alignments at the temple point to further constellations with agricultural significance - May or may not be true . We can only assume things which are stated in passage .

(E) The site containing the temple was occupied for a significant amount of time before abandonment - Nothing about abandonment in mentioned in the passage - Out of scope .
