Re: Historian: The Land Party achieved its only national victory [#permalink]
Historian: The Land Party achieved its only national victory in Banestria in 1935. It received most of its support that year in rural and semirural areas, where the bulk of Banestria’s population lived at the time. The economic woes of the years surrounding that election hit agricultural and small business interests the hardest, and the Land Party specifically targeted those groups in 1935. I conclude that the success of the Land Party that year was due to the combination of the Land Party’s specifically addressing the concerns of these groups and the depth of the economic problems people in these groups were facing.

Each of the following, if true, strengthens the historian’s argument EXCEPT:

(A) In preceding elections the Land Party made no attempt to address the interests of economically distressed urban groups. Both red texts are not our concern. It does not weaken but remains neutral.

(B) Voters are more likely to vote for a political party that focuses on their problems. - WRONG. Voters responded positively.

(C) The Land Party had most of its successes when there was economic distress in the agricultural sector. - WRONG. Exactly what is required by LP in response to its efforts.

(D) No other major party in Banestria specifically addressed the issues of people who lived in semirural areas in 1935. - WRONG. That LP addressed and rewarded.

(E) The greater the degree of economic distress someone is in, the more likely that person is to vote - WRONG. This suggests that people reciprocated specifically to the specific party with their vote.

Answer A.
