Hi

Posting a self made question.

Mary: Ever since Smartglass, the camera fitted, eyeglass-like, wearable computer was launched a few months back, its creator Wonder Inc has come under attack. People have voiced concerns about distracted driving, about people taking photographs of others without their consent and about snooping on personal data. Therefore, Wonder Inc should pause and relook at the product and re-evaluate its profound ramifications on humanity.

Michael: A bigger concern with Smartglass and privacy has more to do with the way it will make us behave in the real world, than just deal with surveillance or collection of personal data. Someone complained that Smartglass looked like a “third eye” that he couldn’t stop staring at. If there is one thing we should really worry about, it is that we will treat each other differently, and trust each other less, when Smartglass is around.

How does Michael react to Mary’s argument?
A. Michael disagrees with some of the facts that Mary presents and goes on to present evidence that opposes her views.
B. Michael refutes Mary’s conclusion and presents his own argument that has a different conclusion.
C. Michael agrees with Mary’s conclusion but disagrees with the facts presented by her.
D. Michael agrees with the facts that Mary presents, at least to some extent, but goes on to present an argument that can further strengthen Mary’s conclusion.
E. Michael presents an argument that reiterates the facts presented by Mary but in a more subdued form.

Thanks

How does Michael react to Mary’s argument?
A. Michael disagrees with some of the facts that Mary presents and goes on to present evidence that opposes her views. Michael doesn't express any disagreement. Moreover, the phrase "a bigger concern" shows his agreement with Mary's position.
B. Michael refutes Mary’s conclusion and presents his own argument that has a different conclusion. He doesn't refute anything
C. Michael agrees with Mary’s conclusion but disagrees with the facts presented by her. No disagreement is expressed.
D. Michael agrees with the facts that Mary presents, at least to some extent, but goes on to present an argument that can further strengthen Mary’s conclusion. Correct. Michael agrees and goes on to further express his concern
E. Michael presents an argument that reiterates the facts presented by Mary but in a more subdued form. Incorrect. Michel's arguments have nothing in commmon with that of Mary

Thanks

Hence D is a correct choice. And a clue is a phrase "bigger concern"
