Gardener: The design of Japanese gardens should display harmony with nature. Hence, rocks chosen for placement in such gardens should vary widely in appearance, since rocks found in nature also vary widely in appearance.

The gardener’s argument depends on assuming which one of the following?


(A) The selection of rocks for placement in a Japanese garden should reflect every key value embodied in the design of Japanese gardens.

(B) In the selection of rocks for Japanese gardens, imitation of nature helps to achieve harmony with nature.

(C) The only criterion for selecting rocks for placement in a Japanese garden is the expression of harmony with nature.

(D) Expressing harmony with nature and being natural are the same thing.

(E) Each component of a genuine Japanese garden is varied.

Gardener: The design of Japanese gardens should display harmony with nature. Hence, rocks chosen for placement in such gardens should vary widely in appearance, since rocks found in nature also vary widely in appearance.] (So, the gardener is stating that harmony with nature can be displayed by choosing varied rock, which is in turn imitation of the rocks found in nature)

The gardener’s argument depends on assuming which one of the following?


(A) The selection of rocks for placement in a Japanese garden should reflect every key value embodied in the design of Japanese gardens. (Argument does not talk about japanese values)

(B) In the selection of rocks for Japanese gardens, imitation of nature helps to achieve harmony with nature. (Similar to our prethinking-Correct))

(C) The only criterion for selecting rocks for placement in a Japanese garden is the expression of harmony with nature. (The argument states that the criteria for achieving harmony is choosing different rocks, does not state criteria for choosing the rocks themselves)

(D) Expressing harmony with nature and being natural are the same thing. (The argument does not talk about being natural-either for rock OR for the garden. Being Natural and to mimic a phenomenon seen in nature may not necessarily mean the same thing)

(E) Each component of a genuine Japanese garden is varied. (The argument does not talk about other components of japanese garden)
