In most countries, lower taxes stimulate economic growth, which is an increase of the capacity of an economy to produce goods and services. In the nation of Tattua, economic growth is significantly higher than it is in the nation of Hothal. Clearly, therefore, Tattua's industries must, on the whole, be further advanced technologically than Hothal's are.

The argument is most vulnerable to which of the following criticisms?


A. It offers a conclusion that is no more than a paraphrase of one of the pieces of information provided in its support.

B. It presents as evidence in support of a claim information that is inconsistent with other evidence presented in support of the same claim.

C. It takes one possible cause of a condition to be the actual cause of that condition without considering any other possible causes.

D. It takes a condition to be the effect of something that happened only after the condition already existed.

E. It makes a distinction that presupposes the truth of the conclusion that is to be established.

Il go for C

The argument is taking just one condition " T's economic growth is higher than H and hence T is further technologically advanced than is H". So it considers economic growth leads to technological advancement.

It presents as evidence in support of a claim information that is inconsistent with other evidence presented in support of the same claim. -- How is this inconsistent with the evidence presented? Economy A is better than Economy B because of better technology. Is this inconsistent? In my opinion, no, as it is a reasonable conclusion based on the evidence presented.

It takes one possible cause of a condition to be the actual cause of that condition without considering any other possible causes. -- Economy A is better than Economy B -- Why? Because of more advanced technology. What about better workers? More educated work force? Clearly, (C) highlights this issue

It takes a condition to be the effect of something that happened only after the condition already existed.

It makes a distinction that presupposes the truth of the conclusion that is to be established.

I was wondering why B can't be the correct answer because as per argument economic growth is increased by lower taxes but in conclusion economic growth occurred due to advanced technology.

I guess the last sentence of argument states that since economic growth is higher thus that place must be technologically advance. I dont think thats a cause. So economic growth didnt occur due to advanced technology.
