### HideShow timer Statistics

Sven: Trade unions are traditionally regarded by governments and economists as restraints of trade, working against the complete freedom of the economy, but I believe that unions are indispensable since they are often the worker’s only protection against exploitation.

Ravi: I don’t agree. The exploitation of the workers and their work is a normal part of ordinary trade just like the exploitation of natural or other material resources.

Sven and Ravi will not be able to resolve their disagreement logically unless they
(A) define a key term
(B) rely on the opinions of established authorities
(C) question an unproved premise
(D) present supporting data
(E) distinguish fact from opinion

I think it is C or E. But E will not resolve they disagreement. So, C

I think it is C or E. But "red" part of Sven's statement is actually opinion. So I think it is E

That was my initial guess because I figured they'd have to define what worker's exploitation was to resolve the discussion.

Agree with A.

Its all about "exploitation of workers"
Looks like they both misunderstood the meaning of this "exploitation"
As per Sven --> exploitation --> paying for only 8 hours but they are working 10 hours..
As per Ravi --> exploitation --> paying for 8 hours and they are working for 8 hours. ( He assumes that this natural ).

If this is defined properly --> issue will be resolved.
