Editorial: An arrest made by a Midville police officer is provisional until the officer has taken the suspect to the police station and the watch commander has officially approved the arrest. Such approval is denied if the commander judges that the evidence on which the provisional arrest is based is insufficient. A government efficiency expert has found that almost all provisional arrests meet standards for adequacy of evidence that watch commanders enforce. The expert therefore recommends that the watch commander’s approval should no longer be required since the officers’ time spent obtaining approval is largely wasted. This recommendation should be rejected as dangerous, however, since there is no assurance that the watch commanders’ standards will continue to be observed once approval is no longer required.

In the editorial, the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?


A. The first is a recommendation made by the editorial; the second acknowledges a potential objection against that recommendation.

B. The first is a proposal against which the editorial is directed; the second is a judgment reached by the editorial concerning that proposal.

C. The first provides evidence in support of a recommendation that the editorial supports; the second is the conclusion reached by the editorial.

D. The first is a position that the editorial challenges; the second is a judgment that was made in support of that challenged position.

E. The first is a recommendation that the editorial questions; the second provides evidence against that recommendation

B/w B and D... I choose B

A. recommendation is made by expert, not editorial OUT

B. The first is a proposal against which the editorial is directed; the second is a judgment reached by the editorial concerning that proposal.

C. 1st isn't evidence and even if it were, then it would contradict 2nd part of this answer OUT

D. up to the end of the 1st part editorial didn't challenge the position, so I eliminated it for that reason OUT

E. 1st part is ok, but 2nd isn't the evidence, it is editorials' conclusion OUT

B looks best.

The editorial is basically arguing against the recommendation that the watch commanders role should be scrapped. The first bold statement is that recoomendation against which the argument is arguing.

The second bold face is a conclusion that the argument reaches for the recommendation.

A. The first is a recommendation made by the editorial; the second acknowledges a potential objection against that recommendation.

Editorial is against first statement.. So wrong.

B. The first is a proposal against which the editorial is directed; the second is a judgment reached by the editorial concerning that proposal.

Correct..


C. The first provides evidence in support of a recommendation that the editorial supports; the second is the conclusion reached by the editorial.

First isn't evidence.. It's either a recommendation or proposal..

D. The first is a position that the editorial challenges; the second is a judgment that was made in support of that challenged position.

Second isn't in support of first.

E. The first is a recommendation that the editorial questions; the second provides evidence against that recommendation

Second isn't evidence.. It's more of a conclusion..
