If we reduce the salaries of our employees, then
profits will increase by 35 percent. Because we must
increase our profits, it is clear that employee salaries
must be reduced.

Which of the following most closely parallels the
reasoning used in the argument above?

If I eat less food, I will lose weight. Since I
started skipping breakfast, I have lost ten
pounds.

If I work four more hours each week, I will earn
enough money to afford a new hobby.
Because I would like a new hobby, I will
collect coins.

If God does not exist, then there is no basis for
morality. Because some actions are morally
wrong, God must exist.

If there is an economic recession, then salaries
will be reduced. Because salaries are not
decreasing, there is not an economic reces-
sion.

If there were more commercials, the number
of television watchers would decline. Be-
cause the number of television watchers
should be reduced, the number of commer-
cials should be increased.
