D. took almost 1 minuet.

if some people who know how a country's government works do not know how its goverment was formed, then it is not necessary to to teach children the history of their country and how its goverment was formed.

4

over a minute

i did a sample test recently checking time frequently. Got distracted by the
extra time check - is it an overhead that is not constructive ? losing concentration to worry about time seem to be too much.

4 too. less than a minute.

What i just did: I glanced at the stem and believed this should be a breeze (3 lines). Then i linked the conclusion with the premise, and immediately the flaw popped up. I said to myself, "To weaken, i need something to tell me that people can know a country well without learning how the country's govt. was formed." i.e. the premise is not just the only thing that can be done. Bingo, 4 said just that and i didn't hesitate to pick it. My key is to train my brain to attack, attack and attack the argument, until i kill it.

Had i read it first and couldn't zero-in on an answer, i'll have gradually read it again, trying to catch the committing words (e.g. only, must, never, etc, etc).

D
It took me less than 30 seconds. I'm not an expert in CR, but i really don't understand where is the trick. There is even no "second best" answer.
