Motor coach driver: Professional drivers spend much more time driving, on average, than do other people and hence are more competent drivers than are other, less experienced drivers. Therefore, the speed limit on major highways should not be reduced, because that action would have the undesirable effect of forcing some people who are now both law-abiding and competent drivers to break the law.

Police officer: All drivers can drive within the legal speed limit if they wish, so it is not true to say that reducing the speed limit would be the cause of such illegal behavior.

The point at issue between the motor coach driver and the police officer is whether


A. it would be desirable to reduce the speed limit on major highways
B. professional drivers will drive within the legal speed limit if that limit is reduced
C. reducing the speed limit on major highways would cause some professional drivers to break the law
D. professional drivers are more competent drivers than are other, less experienced drivers
E. all drivers wish to drive within the speed limit


Does break the law here mean different from reduce the speed limit? i was wrong to choose a as the answer.

I do not think it does, the argument is that the motor coach thinks ''all professional drivers will break the law as they know they can drive in a proficient way and they won't choose to stay in the limit as the law will bring'', on the other hand the police officer says ''EVERYONE can stay in the speed limit if they WISH to.''

And motor coach thinks ''professional drivers WILL break the law as they WISH to drive in high speeds''

So the argument is one that professional drivers will break the law if the speed is reduced as they wish to drive in higher speeds

Can someone explain why the answer isn't B? It's so similarly worded to C..

There is only slight difference between B and C. to understand I rewrote the premise
Professional Less experienced driver
Time spent is high – so competent Time less when compared to pro
Coach conclusion: Don’t reduce the speed limit, because the profession who now obeys law will tend to break if the speed limit is reduced.

Police: if they wish, they can drive slow. So right now also professionals are willing to obey law so that they are driving in prescribed limits.
So these people are debating if the speed limit is reduced , whether there will be a break in law?
Coach view: Yes they will break
Police: No , The chance is less
We have to understand that the conclusion is not yet arrived by the premise.

B. professional drivers will drive within the legal speed limit if that limit is reduced.
This option states that : driver will surely drive below the limits. So we cant deduce that. At the same time,argument topic is also different as I mentioned early.

C. reducing the speed limit on major highways would cause some professional drivers to break the law
Here the "would cause" phrase exactly describe it may or may not happen, and topic of debate I also correct
