Here is my shot

A by elimination more than anything else.

The stimulus states misuse of photo id because there is no uniform standard. Internal passport is recommended to prevent such misuse


A) Non standardized exams may allow mediocre students to take these exams and get into premier institutes- a standard exam will level the playing field- so no misuse

B) They discuss implementation in only private clinic's- why not all hospitals adopt the same standard- hence eliminated.
C) The proposed solution doesnt claim to replace an existing one
D) This sounds more like ease of manufacturing than a solution to avoid mis use!
E) They only want to standardize their quality and not prevent some workers fooling the system.

As part of continuing efforts to control illegal immigration, the US government should institute a system of internal passports similar to those in European nations. Drivers’ licenses currently serve a kind of internal-passport function, but this system is severely limited because all states do not require the same documentation before issuing photo ID. Illegal workers can get a driver’s license in one state with lax regulations and use it as identification in another state with stricter regulations but better-paying jobs. Internal passports will keep illegal workers from slipping through the cracks by standardizing forms of photo ID.

Which of the following is most similar to the passage above in logical structure?


A National standardized college entrance exams replace exams written independently by test administration services affiliated with groups of universities.

Passage says that illegal immigrants are able to obtain DL in U.S. with lax regulation in certain states and these workers take better paying jobs elsewhere. Hence, an internal "passport" only for Americans will keep the illegal immigrants from moving and taking jobs.

Choice A says test created by groups of universities is not fair--less qualified students can take the spots of more qualified students ( US government says its not fair immigrants can take better paying jobs of Americans). Hence, standardized test will keep the less "qualified" students out and level the playing field for everyone. (Hence, internal passport will keep immigrants from moving to better paying jobs)

Hi,


Why not "D"??
We want to avoid a problem of manufacturing at local level and need to standardize the rails at National level.

Any flaw in the reasoning?

Please help me decipher it.

The logical equivalence between the passage and option A are as follows:
workers = examinees
illegal workers = examinees with lower aptitude
authorities issuing ID = universities
authorities issuing ID on lax regulations = universities giving degree on easy exam papers
illegal workers getting photo id from states with lax regulation = examinees with low aptitude getting degree from universities that set easy questions
illegal workers with photo IDs from states with lax regulations are considered at par in states with stricter regulations = examinees with low aptitude are considered at par with students who got degrees from universities which set difficult exam papers.

Now I would suggest that you try to set up such an equivalence between the passage and option D - you would realize why A is more similar to the passage than D is.

Which of the following is most similar to the passage above in logical structure?

a>National standardized college entrance exams replace exams written independently by test administration services affiliated with groups of universities.
b>A national association of doctors approves standards for diagnosis and treatment of childhood development disorders, and these standards are used in private clinics across the country.
c>Resale values of used cars are discussed, standardized, and published in an industry manual also available to independent buyers and sellers.
d>The distance between rails of train tracks is standardized across the country, allowing trains built by any manufacturer to travel along any rail line.
e>Employment applications and hiring processes for a national restaurant chain are standardized in order to ensure uniform quality among employees.

Sorry if this question is already discussed, I was not able to fine and was confused with the OA. Please help

How I see it is that the passage is proposing a decentralized system to control illegal immigration.

All answer choices except A suggest that a uniform or centralized system is incorporated.
