a. Only official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology. "official" makes me eliminate this...but its close and not sure if this could be it too.

b. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology. Eliminate doesnt say anything about regional colleges and therefore leaves room for not all educated in adv degree getting highest ranking

c. Only Web sites that have not received the highest possible rating from the Federal Department of Education are administered by individuals not holding advanced degrees in educational technology. This one holds as it indicates individuals not holding advanced degrees in educational technology are only administering those website that dint have highest ratings.

d. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology. same as B

e. No Web site administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology is an official Web site of a regionally accredited college. Yuck

d. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology.

e. No Web site administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology is an official Web site of a regionally accredited college.

D

D=B so D or B is ok

A = Web sites of nationally accredited colleges

B = received the highest possible rating from the same department

C = Web sites administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology

In the text:
All A ---> B

In the question:

All C ----> B

So, in support of the conclusion in the question

A must be equal C , means that: All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology.

d. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology.

e. No Web site administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology is an official Web site of a regionally accredited college.

It's C in my opinion.

My reasoning below:

a. Only official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology. (this is true but what about some regionally accredited institutions? Some have official websites of regionally accredited colleges have received the highest rating)

b. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology. (this is true but aren't we forgetting about some regionally accredited colleges here?)

c. Only Web sites that have not received the highest possible rating from the Federal Department of Education are administered by individuals not holding advanced degrees in educational technology. (Spot on, this clearly confirms that anywebsite that has received the highest rating Regionally or nationally is administered by individuals with advanced educational technology degrees).

d. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology. (same as B)

e. No Web site administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology is an official Web site of a regionally accredited college.[/quote] (unecessary)

I too go with C.

my way was to find a single case with the statement which may be true.

thus C doesnt provide any such cases with which the statement ceases to be false.

OA and OE:

The correct answer is (A). You can rephrase (A) as follows: All Web sites administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology are official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges. In other words, the following two symbolic statements are logically equivalent:

Only A are B.

All B are A.

Given that all Web sites of nationally accredited colleges have received the highest possible rating from the Department, and given that all Web sites administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology are official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges, it follows logically that all Web sites administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology have received the highest possible rating from the Department. To follow the logical steps, it helps to express the premises and conclusion symbolically:

Premise: All A are C.

Premise: All B are A.

Conclusion: All B are C.

Hey vscid.In where of the argument can you prove the colored one? I saw it appear only in the explaination you called OE. I think there is something wrong here.

Do you see the difference btw A and B? The only difference btw them is "ONLY" in A and "ALL" in B. And in logic term A is mistaken reversal of B

B: All A is B
From there you will wrong if you say: All B is A
And A is exactly same as "mistaken reversal" of B

d. All official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges are administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology.

e. No Web site administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology is an official Web site of a regionally accredited college.

IN THE ARGUMENT:

all official Web sites of nationally accredited colleges have received the highest possible rating from the same department.

IN CONCLUSION: (which is included in question)

all Web sites administered by individuals holding advanced degrees in educational technology have received the highest possible rating from the Federal Department of Education

If A is correct, I think B and D also is correct answer. So in 5 choice we have 3 correct choice.
