Hi All,

Not sure if it is a valid question , but what is the difference in terms of answer choices between an Assumption and question that asks for strengthen the conclusion. Is it that assumption should correlate to premise and answers would be related to stimulus closelywhereas strengthen conclusion could have answers outside of stimulus.

Thanks

Good Question. They both very similar. I originally had a lot of issues distinguishing between the two.

Assumptions can be described as unstated premises in the argument without which the argument would fall apart. The author takes these for granted and you have to identify them in order to make the argument sound.

Strengthen Questions on the other hand provide information or data that provides weight and reason to make an argument stronger.

Hope that helps. Also get a copy of the Powerscore Critical Reasoning there are individual chapters that will help you understand all types of CR Questions.

In case if you haven't see this

There used to be document called Powerscore Cr notes which has points from Powerscore Cr. But if you have to time it is better to get one and read it completely.
