Political scientist: Efforts to create a more egalitarian society are often wrongly criticized on the grounds that total equality would necessarily force everyone into a common mold. Equality is presumed by such critics to require unacceptably bland uniformity. But this is not so. By promoting complementary human interests, a society can achieve a greater and more prosperous equality while enhancing rather than minimizing diversity.

The political scientist’s argument proceeds by

(A) undermining a view by showing that its general acceptance would lead to undesirable consequences

(B) rebutting an objection by attacking the assumption on which it is said to be based

(C) attacking a view by claiming that those who propose it are motivated only by self-interest

(D) claiming that whatever is true of a group must be true of each of the members of the group

(E) undermining an apparent counterexample to a universal claim

Hi everyone,

Pre-thinking:

The author presents a view and an assumption upon which that view depends. Then the author disagrees with it and gives us evidence to convince us of his conclusion.

Option B is the only option in line with pre-thinking.
