FANTOD is a new and powerful programming language. In a five recent cases, teenagers with advanced programming abilities in FANTOD used it to hack into ETS and change their own SAT scores. All of the individuals responsible for these breaches were convicted for their crime. Colleges have discounted the official SAT scores of applicants with these convictions, and have required them either to retake the SAT under more secure conditions or to take special admission tests, with difficulty levels similar to the SAT, in supervised conditions on their own campuses. Student advocates claim that this entire situation gives an unfair advantage to some students, because ____________.

Which of the following most logically completes the passage?
a. some students may find a particular college’s special admission tests easier than the SAT
b. many of these special admission tests at the colleges take less than three hours to complete
c. some of the teenager hackers also changed the SAT scores of their friends
d. in only one case, multiple users of a single school computer all were convicted
e. privately purchased SAT prep courses have been shown to improve performance on all the special admission tests at the colleges

Paraphrase ->
5 Students who changed their score are convicted of crime, They are now asked to retake the SAT under more secure conditions or to take special admission tests,
supervised conditions on their own campuses.

Now how will this condition give an unfair advantage to some ??

a. some students may find a particular college’s special admission tests easier than the SAT
Incorrect-> This will be supporting the students, not act as an unfair advantage

b. many of these special admission tests at the colleges take less than three hours to complete
Incorrect-> -> Time is irrelevant

c. some of the teenager hackers also changed the SAT scores of their friends
Correct -> Yes, this will be unfair for some students.

d. in only one case, multiple users of a single school computer all were convicted
Incorrect-> -> this is not a unfair situation

e. privately purchased SAT prep courses have been shown to improve performance on all the special admission tests at the colleges
Incorrect-> -> Now, let me know if this is correct. is the mentioned special admission test, a subset of all special admission tests?? Not mentioned.

Which of the following most logically completes the passage?
a. some students may find a particular college’s special admission tests easier than the SAT( no information that tests are easier or difficult)
b. many of these special admission tests at the colleges take less than three hours to complete(no information of duration)
c. some of the teenager hackers also changed the SAT scores of their friends( keep)
d. in only one case, multiple users of a single school computer all were convicted( but argument suggests that all individuals responsible for breach were convicted)
e. privately purchased SAT prep courses have been shown to improve performance on all the special admission tests at the colleges( no information)

Will go with C

Thanks

Hi Expert,

I have a question.

In the sentence, it states that "All of the individuals responsible for these breaches were convicted for their crime."

How we can know that the ones whose scores are changed by those teenager hackers are not already convicted for the crime?

Please explain.

Thank you.

Hi Experts,

It's mentioned in the argument that the teenager hackers have changed their own scores, then how can we assume option C to be true?

Please explain.
