George: The anti-drunk driving campaigns will not be successful. Some people are just immune to these campaigns and will drink and drive no matter what.

Shelly: Complete eradication of drunk driving is not the expected outcome. The goal is reduction.

Shelly responds to George by:

(A) questioning the veracity of George’s evidence
(B) suggesting that George’s conclusion is based on incorrect assumptions
(C) partially agreeing with George’s main conclusion but disagreeing with his reasoning
(D) partially agreeing with George’s point of view but suggesting that he has overlooked a beneficial effect
(E) contradicting George’s reasoning and supplying an alternative reasoning

dcummins Feel that E is better than D.

What is successful- reduction or elimination- depends on the objective of the task. George relies on the wrong objective to say the campaign will be unsuccessful while Shelly corrects him, which is in line with option E

There's no "contradiction" though. She just points out that George misinterpreted the evidence. George argues that there's no point to the advertising campaign if "some" people can still drink and drive - i.e. unless there is absolute eradication.

There is contraction though. In how they arrive at the reasoning to say whether it is successful. George says unsuccessful while Shelly says successful

Not sure why you repeated this post dude, but again She doesn't contradict George's reasoning. She does go against his conclusion, not his reasoning, and she also partially agrees with his conclusion, but largely points out that George perhaps misinterpreted the goal of the campaign.

Hi dcummins,

Could you please explain.how shelly has partially agreed to george comments.
Shelly just only said that complete eradication is not the main goal insted the goal is to reduce drink and drive.Shelly no where said that the program will not be partially successfull.

I chose B.
George’s assumption is that campaign’s goal is eradication. So he said it will be not successful.
Shelly’s position is that the goal is not eradication, which means that George’s assumption is incorrect. B shall be answer.

On the other hand, D is weaker because Shelly never agree George’s idea. George claims this campaign is unsuccessful, whereas Shelly said it is successful.

Please correct me.

Why option C is wrong?

It says that Shelly partially agrees with George's main conclusion that Drink-n-drive cannot be completely eradicated, whereas disagrees with the reasoning given by George.

Please explain.

The easiest thing to do is imagine two people actually talking and having a conversation.

Before Shelly to responds with 'the goal is reduction', she actually first acknowledges what George said - that complete eradication is impossible otherwise she would respond by refuting what George said in some way.

George's conclusion is that the campaign will not be successful as drink driving will continue....

Shelly states that the expected outcome for the success of the campaign is not complete eradication but reduction in the incidence of drunk driving...

Thus, Shelly doesn't accept the highlighted part of the conclusion arrived at by George , hence correct Answer can not be (C)

i think it should be "B". the issue with "D" is shelly never agree what geroge said.
So the options in which it is saying that " partially agreeing" i think should not be correct.

Please correct me where i am wrong.

Why is B incorrect? In D,Isn't george's point of view his main conclusion. Shelly doesn't agree with his conclusion even partially. she feels campaign will be successfull.

shelly agrees that drunk driving can not be completely erected. George consider that campaign should completely eradicate drunk driving.
partially they will achieve object by reduction in drunk drive.

so shelly partially agrees and suggests they will achieve some reduction.
