Computers have solved many problems for us, but they create some problems too. Say, for example, that you are writing a novel. After you are done with your first draft you decide to change your heroine’s name from Linda to Lydia. With a typewriter you would have to retype every page containing the heroine’s name. With word processing software, on a computer, you press just a few keys and the computer takes care of all the work. But technology hasn’t solved all our problems. While many of Shakespeare’s original documents survive, it takes
only misplaced keystrokes to wipe out your next masterpiece.

Which of the following propositions is illustrated by this passage?

(A) All you really need is a typewriter.
(B) All you really need is some parchment paper, a quill pen, and some ink.
(C) New technology can improve our lives and cause some problems.
(D) Always make backup copies of your documents.
(E) Most computers are good, some computers are bad.

This argument talks about the advantages and disadvantages of computers as a whole.

(A) All you really need is a typewriter. Typewriter example is used as a reference in the argument to highlight the advantage of computers. Hence incorrect
(B) All you really need is some parchment paper, a quill pen, and some ink. The argument does not advocate the use of paper, pen & ink.Hence incorrect
(C) New technology can improve our lives and cause some problems.This is the main proposition illlustrated by the argument
(D) Always make backup copies of your documents. This may be a valid real life scenario to counter the disadvantage of computers stated in the argument.But this is not the proposition of the argument. Hence, incorrect
(E) Most computers are good, some computers are bad.We cannot differentiate computers as good & bad. Hence, incorrect
