### HideShow timer Statistics

In countries where automobile insurance includes compensation for whiplash injuries sustained in automobile accidents, reports of having suffered such injuries are twice as frequent as they are in countries where whiplash is not covered. Some commentators have argued, correctly, that since there is presently no objective test for whiplash, spurious reports of whiplash injuries cannot be readily identified. These commentators are, however, wrong to draw the further conclusion that in the countries with the higher rates of reported whiplash injuries, half of the reported cases are spurious: clearly, in countries where automobile insurance does not include compensation for whiplash, people often have little incentive to report whiplash injuries that they actually have suffered.

Q. In the argument given, the two boldfaced portions play which of the following roles?

A. The first is a finding whose accuracy is evaluated in the argument; the second is an intermediate conclusion drawn to support the judgment reached by the argument on the accuracy of that finding.
B. The first is a finding whose accuracy is evaluated in the argument; the second is evidence that has been used to challenge the accuracy of that finding.
C. The first is a finding whose implications are at issue in the argument; the second is an intermediate conclusion that has been used to support a conclusion that the argument criticizes.
D. The first is a claim that the argument disputes; the second is a narrower claim that the argument accepts.
E. The first is a claim that has been used to support a conclusion that the argument accepts; the second is that conclusion.

I like A

D and E are clearly out.

C is out b/c 2nd half states that the conclusion is being criticized, which is not the case.

Between A and B, I dislike B b/c it states that the second bold challenges the finding of the first bold. But it doesn't really do that. The first bold is more factual and beyond contestation. In A, the second bold is used to support his final conclusion. Since spurious claims are not identifiable, people in countries where whiplash is not paid do not bother reporting it.

I agree with C! The first part is not being evaluated as far as its accuracy. POE all the way!

C by POE

First is a finding or a premise of the stem. Eliminate D and E
Second neither supports nor challenges that finding , Eliminate A and B

Left with C
