Magazine Publisher: Our magazine does not have a liberal bias. It is true that when a book review we had commissioned last year turned out to express distinctly conservative views, we did not publish it until we had also obtained a second review that took a strongly liberal position. Clearly, however, our actions demonstrate not a bias in favor of liberal views but rather a commitment to a balanced presentation of diverse opinions.

Determining which of the following would be most useful in evaluating the cogency of the magazine publisherâ€™s response?

A. Whether any other magazines in which the book was reviewed carried more than one review of the book

B. Whether the magazine publishes unsolicited book reviews as well as those that it has commissioned

C. Whether in the event that a first review commissioned by the magazine takes a clearly liberal position the magazine would make any efforts to obtain further reviews

D. Whether the book that was the subject of the two reviews was itself written from a clearly conservative or a clearly liberal point of view

E. Whether most of the readers of the magazine regularly read the book reviews that the magazine publishes

Think that C is best option. Since the author claims that they look for balance of opinions, the argument would be cogent in case C is correct

IMO C and E are out..coz in C...it says..that the first review is liberal..hwever in the question the condition present is vice versa

Though confused b/w rest of d choices...D seems better than others..

Hey please notice that in the paragraph...the first review was conservative and thus not liberal..hwever choice C..talks about the first review being liberal n then too going for a second review....
Am I thinking in the right direction?

"we did not publish it until we had also obtained a second review that took a strongly liberal position" was given in the stem

In the question he asks us the genuinity of the claim made

Choice C tells us clearly that if the first reading has taken a liberal position which the mag claims do they go fora second review which gives them a MORE liberal view.
