Atrocities against women are always unacceptable in any society. However, it is more important to denounce such acts in developed societies than in developing/underdeveloped societies even though the number and the intensity of such atrocities are likely to be lower in developed societies. After all, developed societies are looked up to as ideal societies, as paving the path for developing and underdeveloped societies, and so should not tolerate any degree of atrocities against women. Additionally, support for feminist movements often originates in developed societies and the governments in these societies should be more acutely aware of the requirement of their support in case of atrocities against women.

Which one of the following is a proper inference from the passage?

A. All governments have control over atrocities against women in their societies.
B. Some atrocities against women are more opprobrious than others.
C. Lapse in supporting women in developed societies does not bode well for developing/underdeveloped societies.
D. Atrocities against women are more likely in developed societies than elsewhere.
E. Governments in developed societies can more effectively control atrocities against women than other governments.

OA seems to be wrong here. The arguments does not compare between the seriousness of various atrocities. It is comparing attitude towards them in developed world against developing/underdeveloped. I would go with C.

B because the argument does mention degrees of atrocities. From this, we can infer some are more opprobius than others.

C cannot be derived.

I think the OA is wrong here. The answer should be C.

The argument says that developing and underdeveloped societies look up to developed societies and treat them as their ideal. Therefore developed societies should not tolerate any degree of atrocities against women.

B. Some atrocities against women are more opprobrious than others.
It is given that the number and the intensity of such atrocities are likely to be lower in developed societies. But that is just a premise and not the overall concern of the argument.

C. Lapse in supporting women in developed societies does not bode well for developing/underdeveloped societies.
Yes IMO this goes well with the whole motive of the argument.

Could you please tell as to why C is wrong. I am not able to find a reason to eliminate this.

I beg to disagree. The statement from the passage - "After all, developed societies are looked up to as ideal societies, as paving the path for developing and underdeveloped societies, and so should not tolerate any degree of atrocities against women.", clearly allows for deriving C.

Here's how I see this.
Atrocities against women are always unacceptable in any society.
ok - So Atrocities are not acceptable at all

However, it is more important to denounce such acts in developed societies than in developing/underdeveloped societies even though the number and the intensity of such atrocities are likely to be lower in developed societies.
-- Well although they are unacceptable, its more important to denounce them in developed countries.
and why is it so?


After all, developed societies are looked up to as ideal societies, as paving the path for developing and underdeveloped societies, and so should not tolerate any degree of atrocities against women.
-- Here's the reason -
Because Developing countries look up to the developed countries. So developed countries should not tolerate ANY atrocity against women.


Additionally, support for feminist movements often originates in developed societies and the governments in these societies should be more acutely aware of the requirement of their support in case of atrocities against women.
Just add on information..

So what can we infer?
Although atrocity is unacceptable generally, its just cannot happen in a developed country.. and why? Because developing countries consider developed countries as ideal. So we are saying that atrocity in a developed country is really really bad compared to something similar in a developing country.
SO ... we can infer B.. Some atrocities (the one's in developed countries) are more disgraceful than others (in developing countries)

Why did I eliminate C?
we are not really talking whether developed societies support women. Also this comes after the fact (of an atrocity). So atrocity first and then supporting women who suffered .


Here's a similar LSAT argument
