Carrie: The title of the seminar we just attended, Being a Good Husband, is misleading. A title should describe all of the contents of a seminar, but nearly half of this seminar was involved with discussing wives.

Alan: I don’t think the title is misleading. It seems to me that husbands and wives are two sides of one relationship: marriage. One cannot be a husband without a wife.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the discussion above?


A. Carrie believes that the seminar should have been titled, Being a Good Wife.

B. Alan believes that there is no real distinction between the roles of husband and wife.

C. Carrie and Alan disagree about the relevance of traditional marriage.

D. Carrie and Alan disagree about the overall value of the seminar.

E. Carrie believes that the seminar title should not mention husbands without mentioning wives.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the discussion above?


A. Carrie believes that the seminar should have been titled, Being a Good Wife.
not necessarily since half the seminar was on husbands too

B. Alan believes that there is no real distinction between the roles of husband and wife.
The role is not talked about but the relevance of title

C. Carrie and Alan disagree about the relevance of traditional marriage.
no mention of traditional marriage

D. Carrie and Alan disagree about the overall value of the seminar.
they disagree on the TITLE. nothing mentioned about overall value

E. Carrie believes that the seminar title should not mention husbands without mentioning wives.
Best available.... carrie talks of the need to have mentioned wives
A choice saying that the seminar should have had wives word too in it would be more apt..
E suggests that the title could have been without words husbands and wives but Carrie says that title should include the content and content included both wives and husbands. Although one can argue the title could have been marriage, couple but the argument never says that Carrie suggested to do away with both wordsetc

The answer is E.

We can solve this using the

Precise

approach: it is clear from the argument that, while Alan thinks the title was fine, Carrie thinks the seminar's title should have mentioned both husbands and wives. this is exactly what E tell us: E. Carrie believes that the seminar title should not mention husbands without mentioning wives.


We can also always solve using the

Alternative

approach of eliminating the answers:

A. Carrie believes that the seminar should have been titled, Being a Good Wife. no, Carrie thinks wives should have been mentioned as well, but not only

B. Alan believes that there is no real distinction between the roles of husband and wife. nowhere does it say anything like this

C. Carrie and Alan disagree about the relevance of traditional marriage. nowhere does it say anything like this

D. Carrie and Alan disagree about the overall value of the seminar. this is misleading - while it is possible, all we know is that they disagree about the accuracy of the title. it is still perfectly possible that they both found the seminar valuable

Official Explanation



The best answer is E.This is an inference question. The only answer choice that includes something that the reader may safely infer is that Carrie feels that wives should have been mentioned in the seminar title since a good portion of the discussion was devoted to wives. Answer choice A is incorrect because it is an exaggeration of Carrie’s position. Answer choice B is incorrect because it is not supported by any information in the stimulus. Just because Alan believes that the two roles, husband and wife, are parts of the same relationship, does not mean that he sees no distinction or difference between the roles. Answer choices C and D are both irrelevant to the stimulus because they go far beyond the scope of the evidence presented.
