Ms. Eva Rose argued that money and time invested in acquiring a professional degree are totally wasted. As evidence supporting her argument, she offered the case of a man who, at considerable expense of money and time, completed his law degree and then married and lived as a house-husband, taking care of their children and working part time at a day care center so his wife could pursue her career.

Ms. Rose makes the unsupported assumption that

(A) an education in the law is useful only in pursuing law-related activities
(B) what was not acceptable 25 years ago may very well be acceptable today
(C) wealth is more important than learning
(D) professional success is a function of the quality of one's education
(E) only the study of law can be considered professional study

if we negate the C, conclusion( any money spent on degree is a invetsmnet and should have return in monetory terms) will break, hence OA -C

Try negating A, an education in the law is useful not only in pursuing law-related activities, this breaks the whole argument apart. The conclusion: The "time invested in acquiring a professional degree are totally wasted" because the person is not using that knowledge anymore.

She Says that both time and money are wasted in acquiring professional education. How does she justify this? By stating example that a man who invested his time and money acquiring professional law degree later become a house husband.So according to her had he not been working as a house husband, he would have utilized his time and money efficiently. Only option A tells this

(B) what was not acceptable 25 years ago may very well be acceptable today - No mention of comparison over the years
(C) wealth is more important than learning - She says that money is wasted acquiring only professional education and not learning as a whole ; Its not there is no mention of importance of money anyways
(D) professional success is a function of the quality of one's education - rather she says professional success need not be dependent on education
(E) only the study of law can be considered professional study - No its just an example thus this is not an answer
