### HideShow timer Statistics

Professor A: We must make a strong moral statement against Country Xâ€™s policies. Only total divestmentâ€”the sale of all stock in companies that have factories or business offices in Xâ€”can do this. Therefore, the university should divest totally.
Professor B: Our aim should be to encourage X to change its policies. Partial divestment is the best way to achieve this aim. Therefore, the university should sell its stock only in companies that either sell goods to Xâ€™s government, or do the majority of their business in X, or treat their workers in X unfairly.
17. Professor Aâ€™s and Professor Bâ€™s arguments differ in which of the following ways?
(A) They state the same goal but propose different ways of achieving it.
(B) They state different goals but propose the same way of achieving them.
(C) They state different goals and propose different ways of achieving them.
(D) They disagree about whether the university should sell any stock at all.
(E) They disagree about whether Xâ€™s policies are objectionable.

I'd go for A. It seems like protesting against X's policies(A) and encouraging X to change its policies(B) implicitly infer the same goal; to influence X to change its policies.

I picked A.
OA is C.

I am not sure why the goal is different. After reading it again, I am even more unclear about what the goal is. Help please!

The first person wants only to protest. The second person wants to be more active, as in encouraging the changes.
