anyone else weigh in on this? on second review I think it should be B, how can D be the answer? When does he say he believes that the first statement will not hold true in the future? there is no reason for that statement not to hold true by any argument he makes.

hey terp i agree with you that D (although it is OA) is somehow strange... since the author indeed never mentions something about the future... future and hypothetical scenario are two very different things...

however, your choice B can't be the answer since the author's position is not the bold sentence. the actual position is "eliminating criminal penalties for drug use would almost certainly decrease rather than increase the incidence of armed robbery and other violent crime". the second sentences serves as support

i think it is not one of the best questions of MGMAT... i think one weakness is also a missing differentiation between enforcing laws by police and eliminating penalities... whatever...

This is not a very good question. There is no way to choose from B and D. B says - "Infallable" which is never mentioned or indicated in the argument.

D says- Relationship will not hold true. Author never mentions or indicates that increasing enforcement will not result in decline of voilent crime. He barely says that decreasing enforcement will result in decline of voilent crime. Both of these two are very different things and can not be inferred from each other.

Please let me know if anyone has more insight on this question.
