Sartore is a better movie reviewer than Kelly. A movie review should help readers determine whether or not they are apt to enjoy the movie, and a person who is likely to enjoy a particular movie is much more likely to realize this by reading a review by Sartore than a review by Kelly, even though Sartore is more likely to give a movie an unfavorable review than a favorable one.

Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

(A) Sartore has technical knowledge of film, whereas Kelly is merely a fan.

(B) Most of Kelly's movie reviews are unfavorable to the movie being reviewed.

(C) One who is apt not to enjoy a particular movie is more likely to realize this by reading a review by Sartore than a review by Kelly.

(D) Reading a movie review by Sartore will usually help one to enjoy the movie more than one otherwise would have.

(E) Most of the movies that Sartore reviews are also reviewed by Kelly.

Official answer on Manhatten Prep:
Correct Answer:
C

Answer Choice Analysis:
(A) Out of scope. The argument doesn't care about technical knowledge; just whether a person can help people know if they'd enjoy a movie. If you equated technical knowledge with an ability to inform people, you made an unwarranted jump.

(B) If anything, this answer tells me that Kelly and Sartore are similar in some way. That doesn't help me determine that Sartore is better.

(C) Bingo. Almost exactly what we predicted. We needed to support Sartore's better skills with an answer comparing the two reviewers and stating that S beats K. This does that for a new group, strengthening our conclusion.

(D) Out of scope. "Good reviews" are defined in the argument as helping people determine whether they would like a film, not altering whether or not they'd enjoy the movie.

(E) Out of scope. The amount of overlap between the movies they review doesn't impact how good they are at reviewing movies. Also, if anything, this draws a similarity between the two, when I'm trying to conclude that they're different.

Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

(A) Sartore has technical knowledge of film, whereas Kelly is merely a fan.
Explanation: IRRELEVANT

(B) Most of Kelly's movie reviews are unfavorable to the movie being reviewed.
Explanation: Most are Favourable and rest are unfavourable. How does this option help us to determine whether Sartore is a better reviewer? - IRRELEVANT

(C) One who is apt not to enjoy a particular movie is more likely to realize this by reading a review by Sartore than a review by Kelly.
Explanation: There we go! This option implies that Sartore reviews are legit and people choose this platform to read genuine feedbacks. Hence it indirectly claims that Sartre is better off than Kelly. -CORRECT

(D) Reading a movie review by Sartore will usually help one to enjoy the movie more than one otherwise would have.
Explanation: Sartore only gives legitimate reviews but it doesn't change a person's approach towards a movie just because of the review - INCORRECT

(E) Most of the movies that Sartore reviews are also reviewed by Kelly.
Explanation: So what? - INCORRECT

HENCE I chose C
