Politician: Over the next decade, our city will be replacing all of its street signs with signs that are designed for improved readability. But since no one is complaining about the current signs, installing the new ones is a colossal waste of time and money.

Which one of the following would be most useful to know in evaluating the politician's argument?

(A) What features of the new street signs improve the readability of the signs?

(B) Are the new street signs considerably more expensive to manufacture than the current street signs were?

(C) What percentage of its street signs does the city replace annually in the course of ordinary maintenance?

(D) Do any other cities plan to replace their street signs with signs designed for improved readability?

(E) Were experts consulted when the new street signs were designed?

Which one of the following would be most useful to know in evaluating the politician's argument?


(A) What features of the new street signs improve the readability of the signs?
Irrelevant. The argument focuses on whether installing the new street signs is a colossal waste of time and money.

(B) Are the new street signs considerably more expensive to manufacture than the current street signs were?
The cost to produce those street signs is irrelevant to the argument.

(C) What percentage of its street signs does the city replace annually in the course of ordinary maintenance?
Correct as the only choice left after POE.

If the answer for this choice is a large number, for example 50 percent, then it is certain that replacing old street signs by the new ones can't be considered a colossal waste of time and money.

If the answer for this choice is a small number, for example just 1 percent, then replacing old street signs by the new ones is certainly a waste of time and money.


(D) Do any other cities plan to replace their street signs with signs designed for improved readability?
Those activities in other cities are irrelevant to those in politician's city.

(E) Were experts consulted when the new street signs were designed?
Irrelevant
