Since viewers consistently imitate the behaviors they see on TV, continued exposure to violent programs will cause more people to consider violence an acceptable way of solving problems. In order to prevent a nationwide increase in violent crime, the government should ban the broadcast of violent programs.

Which of the following is most similar to the passage above in logical structure?

(A) A judge finds the publisher of a chemistry textbook liable when a group of college students uses an experiment described in the book to start a fire in a rival's dorm room.

(B) A mother bans her teenage sons from watching violent television shows after they are involved in a series of fights with classmates.

(C) A teacher hides the jar of candy she usually keeps on her desk in order to prevent students from gorging on it and ruining their lunch.

(D) A tour guide does not reveal to his clients the location of the town's best ice cream shop because he has been upbraided by the shop's owners for sending in too large a crowd.

(E) A restaurant manager refuses to distribute fliers advertising an upcoming political rally because she does not support the candidate.

Reasoning: People accept violence when they see violence. Ban violent programs to prevent increase in violence.

(A) A judge finds the publisher of a chemistry textbook liable when a group of college students uses an experiment described in the book to start a fire in a rival's dorm room.

Students misused directions given a book to book is liable. Not the same reasoning. We need a preventive measure.

(B) A mother bans her teenage sons from watching violent television shows after they are involved in a series of fights with classmates.

Mother bans violent programs after sons are involved in violence. Again, not a preventive measure.

(C) A teacher hides the jar of candy she usually keeps on her desk in order to prevent students from gorging on it and ruining their lunch.

The teacher hides the candy to prevent students from eating and ruining their lunch. Similar reasoning. If they see candy, they may be tempted to eat it and hence spoil lunch. So prevent that by hiding candy.

(D) A tour guide does not reveal to his clients the location of the town's best ice cream shop because he has been upbraided by the shop's owners for sending in too large a crowd.

The guide is upbraided by the shop owners so he avoids that activity in future (telling people about the shop). Not similar reasoning.

(E) A restaurant manager refuses to distribute fliers advertising an upcoming political rally because she does not support the candidate.

Manager acts on her personal choice. Not similar reasoning.

Also, official questions (and questions based on official questions for practice) are more apt to "learn" how to pick the nuances.
