Historian: It is unlikely that someone would see history as the working out of moral themes unless he or she held clear and unambiguous moral beliefs. However, one’s inclination to morally judge human behavior decreases as one’s knowledge of history increases. Consequently, the more history a person knows, the less likely that person is to view history as the working out of moral themes.

The conclusion of the argument is properly drawn if which one of the following is assumed?

(A) Historical events that fail to elicit moral disapproval are generally not considered to exemplify a moral theme.
(B) The less inclined one is to morally judge human behavior, the less likely it is that one holds clear and unambiguous moral beliefs.
(C) Only those who do not understand human history attribute moral significance to historical events.
(D) The more clear and unambiguous one’s moral beliefs, the more likely one is to view history as the working out of moral themes.
(E) People tend to be less objective regarding a subject about which they possess extensive knowledge than regarding a subject about which they do not possess extensive
knowledge.

Consequently, the more history a person knows, the less likely that person is to view history as the working out of moral themes.

The conclusion of the argument is properly drawn if which one of the following is assumed?

PREMISE INFO:
1. clear & unambiguous moral beliefs (CAMB) ----> see history as the working out of moral themes (HWMT)
2. inclination to morally judge human behavior (IMJHB) ----->inversely proportional to -----> knowledge of history
3. knowledge of history ----> inversely proportional ------> HWMT

DEDUCTIONS:
From 2 & 3,
IMJHB ----->directly proportional to -----> HWMT
From 1,
IMJHB ----->directly proportional to -----> CAMB



(B) The less inclined one is to morally judge human behavior, the less likely it is that one holds clear and unambiguous moral beliefs.
