### HideShow timer Statistics

Governments have only one response to public criticism of socially necessary services: regulation of the activity of providing those services. But governments inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it, and that is particularly troublesome in these times of strained financial resources. However, since public criticism of child-care services has undermined all confidence in such services, and since such services are socially necessary, the government is certain to respond.

Which one of the following statements can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The quality of child care will improve.
(B) The cost of providing child-care services will increase.
(C) The government will use funding to foster advances in child care.
(D) If public criticism of policy is strongly voiced, the government is certain to respond.
(E) If child-care services are not regulated, the cost of providing child care will not increase.

B)...

Governments have only one response to public criticism of socially necessary services: regulation of the activity of providing those services. But governments inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it, and that is particularly troublesome in these times of strained financial resources.

However, since public criticism of child-care services has undermined all confidence in such services, and since such services are socially necessary, the government is certain to respond.

first part=>one respose to public criticism=>leads to regulation of it =>makes it more expensive

second part=>public criticism of child cards=>leads to regulation by government cause its socially necessary=>makes it more expensive

Very good question...Looks cyclic though

Response--->Regulation->Raise of prices

Criticism-> Response to evoke--->Regulate --->Rise in prices......

Yes, B...."E" has a problem in that it says cost will not increase, but the stem says government only makes it only more expensive....so E is definitely out

one more for B.

(1) ....But governments inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it...........

(2) Governments have only one response : regulation....

(3) ..... the government is certain to respond......

Therefore, the cost of providing child-care services will increase.

1) Governments have only one response to public criticism of socially necessary services: regulation of the activity of providing those services.

2) But governments inevitably make the activity more expensive by regulating it, and that is particularly troublesome in these times of strained financial resources.

3) However, since public criticism of child-care services has undermined all confidence in such services, and since such services are socially necessary, the government is certain to respond.

Which one of the following statements can be inferred from the passage?

(A) The quality of child care will improve.
- We do not know that from the passage.

(B) The cost of providing child-care services will increase.
- Cost of providing will not increase, but cost of using child care services will increase

(C) The government will use funding to foster advances in child care.
- We do not know that form the passage

(D) If public criticism of policy is strongly voiced, the government is certain to respond.
- I'll go with this choice. We know from the passage that when public criticism is strong, the government reacts by stepping in to regulate the activity.

(E) If child-care services are not regulated, the cost of providing child care will not increase.
- Again, we can't tell if cost of providing child care will increase or not.

D for me.
