Hi,


In Analysis of Argument essays, I find that usually there are always points which can make the argument provided stronger.

But does that mean we should never agree with the argument provided?

can we agree with and say that "author could provide some more points X,Y,Z to make his argument sound more convincing. Rather than just disagreeing every time?

I read in multiple forums that we should always disagree with what is provided..

Yes. According to the GMAT AWA, we should always disagree with the author's conclusion, and attack the argument by finding assumptions that question the argument. For the second last paragraph you can say that, "if the author had A,B,C, evidence it would have made the argument convincing. Hope this helps!
