Even though most universities retain the royalties from faculty members inventions, the faculty members retain the royalties from books and articles they write. Therefore, faculty members should retain the royalties from the educational computer software they develop.

The conclusion above would be more reasonably drawn if which of the following were inserted into the argument as an additional premise?

(A) Royalties from inventions are higher than royalties from educational software programs.
(B) Faculty members are more likely to produce educational software programs than inventions.
(C) Inventions bring more prestige to universities than do books and articles.
(D) In the experience of most universities, educational software programs are more marketable than are books and articles.
(E) In terms of the criteria used to award royalties, educational software programs are more nearly comparable to books and articles than to inventions.

E.

I would go for option E that establishes a one to one comparision between books and articles & educational software programs royalty criteria, and therefore suggestes the faculty members to retain it.

E must be it. If educational software is considered as a book, then the conclusion that royalties from educational software going back to the faculty memebers is correct.

The passage concludes that, where royalty retention of faculty members’ works is concerned, software should be treated as books and articles are, not as inventions are. The conclusion requires an additional premise establishing that software is, in relevant respects, more comparable to books and articles than to inventions. E provides this kind of premise and is therefore the best answer.

A, B,C and D each describe some difference between software and inventions, or between inventions and books and articles, or between software and books and articles. However, none establishes the required relationship among inventions, software, and books and articles.

This is essentially a strengthen question. The conclusion for this argument is "faculty members should retain the royalties from the educational computer software they develop". Option "E" strengthens the conclusion by drawing a parallel between books and articles and educational computer software.

The author argues that Faculty members should retain royalties from educational software they develop since:
Faculty members retain royalties from books and articles they write

background/counter: universities retain royalties from members' inventions

missing info: what's the link between the software and the books/ articles? Is the software based on the books/ articles?

A - differences in royalty amounts are irrelevant to the argument
B - this does not serve as plausible grounds to support the argument that authors should receive royalties from edu. software they develop
C - prestige means squat in the scheme of this argument
D - marketability of the educational software does not support the argument.
E - Supports the notion that educational software royalties are more aligned to the royalties currently received by faculty members.
