Graphics Designer: the client's campaign targets mainly women. Since research has shown that pink, red and purple appeal to women more than other colors, we have decided to include them in the ad. Therefore, this ad should be significantly more appealing to women than other ads.

Advertisement Manager: I am a woman, and I do not find this ad appealing. Although women may find pink, red and purple more appealing than other colors, they do not necessarily find the combination of all three colors appealing.

The advertisement manager responds to the graphics designer by

A) making a generalization that supports the graphic designer's conclusion and then pointing out an overlooked detail which weakens it
B) stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion and then pointing out an overlooked detail which supports it
C) making a generalization about the graphic designer and then dismissing the graphic designer's work due to an incorrect conclusion
D) stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion and then pointing out an overlooked detail which further undermines it
E) stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion and then supporting the conclusion with a general rule

The advertisement manager responds to the graphics designer by

A) making a generalization that supports the graphic designer's conclusion and then pointing out an overlooked detail which weakens it ---> No generalization is made that supports conclusion.
B) stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion and then pointing out an overlooked detail which supports it----> Same as A
C) making a generalization about the graphic designer and then dismissing the graphic designer's work due to an incorrect conclusion- Same as A
D) stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion and then pointing out an overlooked detail which further undermines it----> this fits the analysis
E) stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion and then supporting the conclusion with a general rule
- ---> Conclusion is not supported rather undermined


Conclusion by Grap Desig- ad should be significantly more appealing to women than other ads
Ad Manager- Rejects conclusion , accepts the premise and then point out detail which weakens conclusion.

D - the specific case is when she talks about herself; overlooked detail is how the combination of colors doesn't work

IMO the answer should be D. First she talks about herself(specific case). Then presents a point that was overlooked.

Although A is a strong contender.(Although women may find pink, red and purple more appealing than other colors,)-this is the first part generalization (they do not necessarily find the combination of all three colors appealing.)- weakens by pointing out a detail.

Suggestions?

SajjitaKundu,

You left out a piece of the puzzle for (A). The first piece says "I am a woman, and I do not find this ad appealing". This is a SPECIFIC example. Hence why the answer is (D).

Does this help?

Hi, sure I get that. So I ended up going for D. Just like you said. But I was just wondering which statement should we give preference? The 1st or the second.

Take the whole question at face value. (D) is word for word what we want:

D. stating a specific case which may undermine the graphic designer's conclusion (I am a woman, and I do not find this ad appealing) and then pointing out an overlooked detail which further undermines it (Although women may find pink, red and purple more appealing than other colors, they do not necessarily find the combination of all three colors appealing). If you leave out the "I am a women" part, (A) would be suitable. But, it is part of her statement, so we must include it
