Lauren is clearly going to make an awful professor. Nearly half of her students failed their final this past spring. She should probably choose another career path, because her students’ performance demonstrates that she doesn’t teach very well.

What statement, if true, most weakens the argument above?


A This was Lauren’s second time teaching a college class.

B The class Lauren was teaching is a required class for all freshmen.

C The students who failed the exam also had poor attendance.

D The students who passed the exam attended an optional review session Lauren’s teaching assistant held.
E Lauren struggled early in the semester with lesson planning.

Answer is C because it indicates that there is reason for students failure other than only the teaching of Lauren. Option D strengthens the argument. Remaining options are irrelevant.

What statement, if true, most weakens the argument above?


A This was Lauren’s second time teaching a college class. Wrong. Does not say anything about her teaching abilities

B The class Lauren was teaching is a required class for all freshmen. Wrong. Does not affect the argument

C The students who failed the exam also had poor attendance. Correct. She might teach well, but if the students didnt attend her class, then the faliure of students in an exam should not be Lauren's fault. This seriously undermines the conclusion.

D The students who passed the exam attended an optional review session Lauren’s teaching assistant held. Wrong. Strengthens the answer

E Lauren struggled early in the semester with lesson planning. Wrong. Does not affect the argument
