Question 3—4

Sally: I cannot study at a university where there is an alcohol problem. So unless something is done about the alcohol problem at this university, I’ll have to transfer to a university where there are no fraternities.

Yolanda: I don’t agree that fraternities are responsible for the alcohol problem at this university. Alcohol problems exist at all universities, including those where there are no fraternities. We all should become more aware of alcohol abuse. It’s not simply a fraternity problem; it’s a cultural problem.

3. Which one of the following is an assumption on which Sally’s argument depends?

(A) Most universities have fraternities.
(B) Nothing will be done about the alcohol problem at Sally’s university.
(C) Alcohol problems are becoming more widespread at universities.
(D) Some fraternity members who drink alcohol beverages are too young to do so legally.
(E) There could be universities that have no alcohol problems.

4. In the conversation, Yolanda does which one of the following?

(A) She argues that if people become more aware of alcohol abuse, fewer people will themselves abuse alcohol.
(B) She makes an overly broad generalization from one university to all universities.
(C) She concludes that because alcohol problems are cultural problems, they cannot be fraternity problems.
(D) She tries to undermine what she supposes to be Sally’s position by pointing out that alcohol problems occur even at universities where there are no fraternities.
(E) She suggests that even if alcohol problems existed only at universities with fraternities, she would still conclude that alcoholism is a cultural rather than a fraternity problem.

The option E of second question is wrong because Yolanda doesnt presuposses what she is out to prove. She is not adamant that even in extreme case ( i.e. alcolhol problem persists only in univ with fraternity), she'll still conclude that its a cultural problem & not a result of existent fraternities.
