Contrary to the charges made by some of its opponents, the provisions of the new deficit-reduction law for indiscriminate cuts in the federal budget are justified. Opponents should remember that the New Deal pulled this country out of great economic troubles even though some of its programs were later found to be unconstitutional.

The author’s method of attacking the charges of certain opponents of the new deficit-reduction law is to

(A) attack the character of the opponents rather than their claim

(B) imply an analogy between the law and some New Deal programs

(C) point out that the opponents’ claims imply a dilemma

(D) show that the opponents’ reasoning leads to an absurd conclusion

(E) show that the New Deal also called for indiscriminate cuts in the federal budget

IMHO Answer: B

Contrary to the charges made by some of its opponents, the provisions of the new deficit-reduction law for indiscriminate cuts in the federal budget are justified. Opponents should remember that the New Deal pulled this country out of great economic troubles even though some of its programs were later found to be unconstitutional.

The author’s method of attacking the charges of certain opponents of the new deficit-reduction law is to

(A) attack the character of the opponents rather than their claim
Totally Wrong. Drop.

(B) imply an analogy between the law and some New Deal programs
Contender. Author does point out the New Deal Program to justify the stand against opponents.Keep it.

(C) point out that the opponents’ claims imply a dilemma
I can not see any dilemma.

(D) show that the opponents’ reasoning leads to an absurd conclusion
Author, no where talks about the reasoning of opponents.

(E) show that the New Deal also called for indiscriminate cuts in the federal budget[/quote]
Nopes. Nothing like that is mentioned in the argument.
