Chief Judge:The director of the Ethics and Fair play Authority would have the public believe that increases in the number of sports bookies caught demonstrate that sports betting is no longer prevalent. This is a specious argument, as unsound as it would be to assert that the ever--increasing rate at which petty thiefs are being run down demonstrates a level of safety to the public. The real cause of the increased bookies caught is a greater efficiency in using technologies that detect malpractices.

The Chief Judge’s statements, if true, best support which of the following as a conclusion?


A) The use of technology is the reason for the increasing crackdown of bookies by directors.

B) It is possible to determine how many bookies are out at large by some way other than by nabbing them.

C) The proportion of sports bookies that are caught is as high as the proportion of rain forest trees that are cut down each year.

D) Modern technologies use-up resources by catching sports bookies.

E) Sports bookies continue to be an prevalent entity.

Chief Judge:The director of the Ethics and Fair play Authority would have the public believe that increases in the number of sports bookies caught demonstrate that sports betting is no longer prevalent. This is a specious argument, as unsound as it would be to assert that the ever--increasing rate at which petty thiefs are being run down demonstrates a level of safety to the public. The real cause of the increased bookies caught is a greater efficiency in using technologies that detect malpractices.

Reasoning....
Chief Judge says that the reasoning that more number of bookies caught means the betting is no longer prevalent lacks credibility. He gives an analogy on the same. Thereafter, he says it is a greater efficiency of technology that has resulted in more arrests.


The Chief Judge’s statements, if true, best support which of the following as a conclusion?
Conclusion should be based on the MAIN point of the para and that is prevalence of betting.


A) The use of technology is the reason for the increasing crackdown of bookies by directors.
Yes, it is true. But is it the conclusion. NO. This is a sort of inference and rewording of last sentence.

B) It is possible to determine how many bookies are out at large by some way other than by nabbing them.
Out of scope

C) The proportion of sports bookies that are caught is as high as the proportion of rain forest trees that are cut down each year.
Out of scope again. Analogy was to strengthen the reasoning and not as the main point

D) Modern technologies use-up resources by catching sports bookies.
Out of scope

E) Sports bookies continue to be an prevalent entity.
True. This touches the main point and is an appropriate conclusion.

E
