D is my FA

According to me 1 and 2 are irrelevant and 3 makes us believe that the cooperation between humans and animals ends with a moral which proves that humans can be cooperative, and not cruel, not uncaring et cetera. This is a solid rebututtal.

I go with A, that is only I

II is definitely out of question, as it states the intent of the producers which in no way attacks the assumption

III was a good probable, but I dismissed because of the word "usually"

If I were true then the conclusion falls apart

Hi

My answer to this is C. Both statement 1 and 2 diqualify the authors view. Both the statement, does not provide an opportuinity to the children to view animals as better than humans.

Regards

I'm with A
1) If children cannot watch spaghetti Westerns (whatever that means!), then how can they be taught to value animals more highly than other human beings? This weakens the argument
2) This is a claim that is not substantiated. It's like saying that apples are red because they are red
3) We are not interested about ancient fables, what we want to know is what current motion pictures teach children

Only 1 weakens the argument

A should be it.

i) if children are not allowed to watch then definitely the movies are not teching children to treat animals better than human beings

ii) so what, intention has nothing to do with the after effect.

iii) This may weaken because to some extent it conveys that humans are better if we assume that moral gives a good picture about human beings
On the other hand we dont know what moral is being taught so we cannot tell for sure.
