### HideShow timer Statistics

Rating music albums to reflect the amount of frank language and violence each one contains, in the way that motion pictures are rated, will not serve to reduce the likelihood that younger children will be exposed to that kind of music.

Each of the following, if true, could be logically cited in support of the opinion above EXCEPT:

a) Most record albums are bought by older children who generally do not limit their younger siblings' access to their albums.
b) It would not be feasible to use the rating system to restrict the range of music that radio stations may play.
c) Movie theaters almost never fail to bar children under 18 from admittance to motion pictures of an adult nature.
d) Record stores could not be relied upon to monitor the age of customers seeking to purchase a particular album.
e) Younger children who would ordinarily not be interested in music with mature content might be drawn to it if that content were indicated by a particular rating.

Rating music albums to reflect the amount of frank language and violence each one contains, in the way that motion pictures are rated, will not serve to reduce the likelihood that younger children will be exposed to that kind of music.

Each of the following, if true, could be logically cited in support of the opinion above EXCEPT:
-- We need to find an answer that does not weaken the argument that the music will not be able to impose these regulations. In other words: Strengthen the position that this is feasible.

a) Most record albums are bought by older children who generally do not limit their younger siblings' access to their albums. -- strengthens original argument because there is no way to regulate this
b) It would not be feasible to use the rating system to restrict the range of music that radio stations may play. -- Not feasible = strengthener
c) Movie theaters almost never fail to bar children under 18 from admittance to motion pictures of an adult nature. --Winner: Out of Scope: Movie to Music comparison. Further, it shows regulations can work.
d) Record stores could not be relied upon to monitor the age of customers seeking to purchase a particular album. -- Strengthens, because stores cannot enforce the law
e) Younger children who would ordinarily not be interested in music with mature content might be drawn to it if that content were indicated by a particular rating. -- Strengthens: more kids wanting to listen to the music with no way to censor it
