First Question

This was a tough one. Thru POE I choose E
A out of scope
B supports a premise
C supports argument
D out of scope

From E if much legislation is passed despite party disunity, then atleast the members are cohesive in decision making. Hence E weakens the conclusion which is 1st sentence of the psg

Second Question

My choice for this one is E as well
E strengthens the arg on inabilility of cohension in a party

ps: took me total 5.5 mins for both these questions!!! got to improve on timing

I would agree for E for the first one,

But the second one, C can also hold good, here Half members of the minoriy party voted against thier leaders, it does show that there is no Unity in the Party ( Minority)

Can some one explain it better or Justify answer E, if I am wrong.

I remember seeing this question at http://richardbowles.tripod.com

There are quite a few of such sites on the Internet but after visiting some of them I would not rely on the quality of questions there. ETS has a very distinctive logic and other authors of CRs often do not follow it (even Kaplan and Princeton). Trying to explain the OAs of these questions may actually harm your thinking

I believe the official explanation given for the first question is ridiculous

Hey I think it is 1-C and 2-E.

In C, it is stated that it is the duty of the leader to be responsible to the local guys. Then, the disunity should not be questioned at all. weakens the most. As for E in the first question, 'the legislations are passed' may mean that there may be unity among the parties. It does not talk about the disunity withn a party.

E is obvious in 2. All others are out of scope.

C & E are the answers.

Thank you.

1. E
2. E

In case of the first question, C is nothing but reframing of the sentence start with 'Consequently...' . E seems to be the only one which seems to show that, the author's argument may not be strong.
