(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.

(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain to be a world leader.

(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that nation cannot be a world leader.

(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.

1) Economic considerations color every aspect of international dealing
2) Nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealing with the borrower
3) That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be a world leader <-- conclusion

nation owe money ---> cannot be world leader
can be world leader ---> does not owe money

Conclusion is true only if a nation is a world leader when it does not owe money to any other nation. We need an assumption along this line of reasoning.

The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?

(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
- Out

(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain to be a world leader.
- No. We're told the nation can be one, but not definitely one (which the word 'certain' suggests)

(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that nation cannot be a world leader.
- Yes. If we're told a nation that has the terms of its dealing set by another nation and this is sufficient to make it not be a 'world leader', then it's true that a nation that does not owe money (sets the terms) is a world leader.

(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
- No. Does not tells us why not oweing money makes a nation a world leader

(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.
- Out

I'll take C

i went with C , precisely because it repeats the words of the conclusion, but i could not find a reason to reject D , hence took 3:31 min to choose between C and D

Prediction: A nation in debt cannot be a world leader.
Prediction: A nation that does not set the terms of an agreement with another nation cannot be a world leader.

A - Does not line up with predictions. The argument is in terms of the nation receiving the loan, not the lender. Out of scope.
B - Does not line up with predictions. The argument is in terms of the nation receiving the loan, not the lender. Key word 'certain' is too extreme.
C - Matches prediction 2. This is the correct answer.
D - Does not line up with predictions. Does not jive with author's conclusion. A nation in debt cannot be a world leader.
E - Does not line up with predictions. Out of scope.

Re-posting for further discussion.

Aristotle CR.

Economic considerations colour every aspect of international dealings, and nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealings with the borrower. That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be world leader.
The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?
(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain
to be a world leader.
(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that
nation cannot be a world leader.
(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that
other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.

Doubt: Why is D wrong? What exactly does C mean by another action set?

Hi Swaiti007

This question is about "supporter assumption".

The stimulus says:
Fact: Lender sets the terms of its dealings with a nation who wants to borrow money
Conclusion: a nation that borrows money from another nation cannot be world leader

You can see the flow: Lender sets terms of borrowing to A nation who wants to borrow ==> This nation cannot be World leader.
The assumption should connect "terms of borrowing" to "world leader".
The assumption should be: Any nation who has terms of borrowing that are set by another nation ==> cannot be world leader

C says: A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that nation cannot be a world leader.
It means: X, who has the terms of X's dealing with Y set by Y, cannot be a world leader
Hence, C is correct.

D is wrong because It's simply a reverse answer. D says: X is world leader because Y does not set terms of dealing with X. But the real assumption is: X has terms of dealing that are set by Y ==> X is not world leader.

Hope it helps.

Could you recommend the source of correct question. I don't think there's a problem with wording here. OA is C. You can refer to:

I was talking about OA C's wording: usage of "action" instead of "nation". Usage of action is nonsensical. With the explanations above it does gets clear. I was expecting someone would correct the original post and avoid the confusions.

Thanks for link though.
