Most scholars agree that King Alfred (A.D 849 - 899) personally translated a number of Latin texts into Old English. One historian contends that Alfred also personally penned his own law code, arguing that the numerous differences between the language of the law code and Alfred's translation of Latin texts are outweighed by the even more numerous similarities. Linguistic similarities, however, are what one expects in texts from the same language, the same time, and the same region. Apart from Alfred's surviving translation and law code, there are only two other extant works from the same dialect and milieu, so it is risky to assume here that linguistic similarities point to common authorship.

The passage above proceeds by

(A) Providing examples that underscore another argument's conclusion.

(B) questioning the plausibility of an assumption on which another argument depends.

(c) showing that a principle if generally applied would have anomalous consequences.

(D) showing that the premises of another argument are mutually inconsistent.

(E) using argument by analogy to undermine a principle implicit in another argument.

One historian says that the linguistic similarities between the law code and Alfred's translations outweigh the differences. The historian thus concludes that Alfred wrote that law code. The underlying assumption in that argument is that if you compare the work of a known author (Work A) to the work of an unknown author (Work B) and the linguistic similarities between those works outweigh the differences, then Work B was most likely also written by the author of Work A. The author of this passage then states, "Linguistic similarities, however, are what one expects in texts from the same language, the same time, and the same region." In other words, the similarities can be explained by other factors (shared language/time/region), not only by shared authorship. Furthermore, because there are only two other extant works, we do not have enough evidence to rule out the possibility that the similarities are due to shared language/time/region rather than shared authorship. Thus, as indicated in choice B, the author of the passage questions the plausibility of the historian's argument.

Scholars' assumption : Alfred personally penned his own law code.
Reasoning that assumption is based upon : Many similarities between the law code that Alfred wrote and Alfred's translation of Latin texts.
Conclusion by the author of the stem : ] It is risky to assume that linguistic similarities point to common authorship.
Evidence supporting the conclusion : Apart from Alfred's surviving translation and law code, there are only two other extant works from the same dialect and milieu.

Basically, Author's conclusion questions the validity of Scholars' assumption.

(A) Providing examples that underscore another argument's conclusion.
It's the other way around. Argument's conclusion underscores provided examples.

(B) questioning the plausibility of an assumption on which another argument depends.
Correct. Author questions the validity / plausibility of the assumption.

(c) showing that a principle if generally applied would have anomalous consequences.
Author does not discuss any consequences, only says that the assumption is risky.

(D) showing that the premises of another argument are mutually inconsistent.
Premises are consistent.

(E) using argument by analogy to undermine a principle implicit in another argument.
Author does not use any analogies.

Not able to eliminate between B and E.


E basically uses the word "Undermine" - Strong critical word - Nowhere the argument criticizes stuff`s...All it does is to tell you "TREAD WITH CAUTION", So we can go with B

Answer choice 'B' is correct -

The passage's third and fourth sentences question the plausibility of the historian's assumption that no one but Alfred would have been likely to write a text whose language has more similarities to than differences from the language in Alfred's translations

The above lines question the assumption made by historian. Linguistic similarities cannot be treated as the main point for common authorship. The other works also indicate the same.

My previous post explains why choice (B) is correct, but I made a typo and wrote "C". I have corrected the mistake... thanks for checking!

As for choice (C), although generalizing the assumption made by the historian might have "anomalous consequences", the author does not describe any such consequences in the passage. Thus, choice (C) does not accurately describe how the author proceeds.

Choice (B) is the correct answer.

Hey snjainpune ,

Let me help you. :)

Understand the argument clearly first.

The Scholars said King did some work X. Historian said King also did some work Y. On what basis? He said differences are fewer compared to similarities.

Author said: However: Similarities require alot of conditions but many of those conditions were not met by Mr King. He met only a few conditions.

Conclusion: "it is risky to assume here that linguistic similarities point to common authorship."

That means Author is trying to say " Dude, don't be so sure about what you are saying. There are some other possibilities.

Let's discuss the options now:

The passage above proceeds by

(A) Providing examples that underscore another argument's conclusion. --> Author is not underscoring anything. Author is asking to expand your scope and consider other possibilities.

(B) questioning the plausibility of an assumption on which another argument depends. --> Yeah, Here we go. Author is expanding the scope by providing another possibility.

(c) showing that a principle if generally applied would have anomalous consequences. --> Nooo.. He never said so. Author is still not sure about what he said. He just said consider other possibilities

(D) showing that the premises of another argument are mutually inconsistent. --> Same as A.

(E) using argument by analogy to undermine a principle implicit in another argument. --> Again, he is not undermining anything. Notice the word "risky"

Does that make sense?

abhimahna, great explanation!

Yes, linguistic similarities alone are not enough to safely assume that two works were written by the same author. If both works were written in the same language, at the same time, and in the same region, we would expect the works to have linguistic similarities, even if they were written by different authors.

this is a very special question; the question is also a special pattern. I call this type "the flow of logic".
Clearly, B and D are left.
The reason D is not eliminated immediately is because D is quite ambiguous. What are "premises of another argument "? "the another argument" refers to the main position of the passage, or the second argument.
Since B is much better than D, the correct answer should be B. Also, ones note that nothing is inconsistent here, and there are not so many premises.

Not sure if you are still looking for an answer, but here are my two cents.

I hope you are aware that an ARGUMENT must contain a premise and main conclusion.

Most scholars agree that King Alfred (A.D. 849–899) personally translated a number of Latin texts into Old English.
This is a premise.
Simply put: As per most scholars, King A did X

One historian contends (claims) that Alfred also personally penned his own law code, arguing
that the numerous differences between the language of the law code and Alfred's translations of Latin texts
are outweighed by the even more numerous similarities.
Simply put:
One historian concludes that he also did Y since there are lots of similarities between X and Y.

X= translation
Y= writing a law code.

Hope this helps!

Argument Analysis: Most Scholars: King Alfred (A.D 849 - 899) personally translated a number of Latin texts into Old English. (Such an amazing guys, what time management skills, that he managed the kingdom and wrote stuff..... :oops: )
One Historian: Alfred also personally penned his own law code. More similarities than differences in the language of the law code and his other works. (So the historian base his claim on the assumption mentioned assumption.)
Mentions that linguistic similarities are something that one expects from the same language, the same time and the same region.
But says that apart from the surviving translations and law code, there are ONLY 2 other works from the same dialect.
Conclusion: So it is risky to assume here that linguistic similarities point to common authorship.

The passage above proceeds by: Reasoning that the passage proceeds by....

Quote:
(A) Providing examples that underscore another argument's conclusion.
No where does the author underscore another argument's conclusion. He/She only suggests to consider other possibility. Hence questions the viability of the earlier assumption.
Quote:
(B) questioning the plausibility of an assumption on which another argument depends.
This is exactly what the historian does. Let's keep this.
Quote:
(c) showing that a principle if generally applied would have anomalous consequences.
No anomalous consequences mentioned in the argument. Historian doesn't suggest any consequences whatsoever.
Quote:
(D) showing that the premises of another argument are mutually inconsistent.
Premises of two arguments aren't at all inconsistent. Rather the same argument is used, with only deviating suggestion by the historian.
Quote:
(E) using argument by analogy to undermine a principle implicit in another argument.
Neither does the author undermine any principle mentioned in the argument nor does he uses any analogy in the argument.

Official Answer:

Argument Evaluation

Situation A historian argues that King Alfred must have written his own law code, since there are more similarities than differences between the language in the law code and that in Alfred's translations of Latin texts. Apart from Alfred's translations and law code, there are only two other extant works in the same dialect and from the same milieu.

Reasoning How does the reasoning in the passage proceed? The first sentence presents a claim that is not disputed in the passage. The second sentence presents a historian's argument. Implicitly citing the undisputed claim in the passage's first sentence as evidence, the historian proposes an analogy between the law code and Alfred's translations, arguing on the basis of this analogy that Alfred wrote the law code. The third sentence of the passage casts doubt on this analogy, pointing out that it could plausibly apply to texts that Alfred did not write. The fourth sentence suggests that too few extant texts are available as evidence to rule out the possibility raised in the third sentence. Thus, the third and fourth sentences are intended to undermine the historian's argument.

(E) using argument by analogy to undermine a principle implicit in another argument.



Option B is Correct. The passage's third and fourth sentences question the plausibility of the historian's assumption that no one but Alfred would have been likely to write a text whose language has more similarities to than differences from the language in Alfred's translations.

Why are A, C, D & E incorrect:-

A - As explained above, the passage is intended to undermine the conclusion of the historian's argument, not to underscore (emphasize) it.

C - Although there might well be anomalous consequences from generalizing the assumption on which the historian's argument relies, the passage does not mention or allude to any such consequences.

D - The passage does not mention, or suggest the existence of, any inconsistencies among the premises of the historian's argument.

E - Although the historian argues by analogy, the passage does not itself argue by analogy; it does not suggest any specific counteranalogy to undermine the historian's argument.
