GMATNinja, I am also of the opinion that info mentioned in choice C is already there in the argument.

Argument: The fewer restrictions there are on the advertising of legal services, the more lawyers there are who advertise their services

Option C: If the restriction against advertisements that do not specify fee arrangements is removed, more lawyers will advertise their services.

So, C seems to be just a re-statement. Then how is it correct?

It's correct because the question asks, "If the statements above are true, which of the following must be true?"

Can an inference be a couple logical steps away from the information in the passage? Absolutely. Can it be a simple re-phrasing of something in the passage? Absolutely. (More on common inference errors in this video.)

Every other choice can be eliminated, and (C) remains the only choice that's true according to the passage, so we're going to keep it. :)

The fewer restrictions there are on the advertising of legal services, the more lawyers there are who advertise their services, and the lawyers who advertise a specific service usually charge less for that service than lawyers who do not advertise. Therefore, if the state removes any of its current restrictions, such as the one against advertisements that do not specify fee arrangements, overall consumer legal costs will be lower than if the state retains its current restrictions.

If the statements above are true, which of the following must be true?


(A) Some lawyers who now advertise will charge more for specific services if they do not have to specify fee arrangements in the advertisements.

(B) More consumers will use legal services if there are fewer restrictions on the advertising of legal services.

(C) If the restriction against advertisements that do not specify fee arrangements is removed, more lawyers will advertise their services.

(D) If more lawyers advertise lower prices for specific services, some lawyers who do not advertise will also charge less than they currently charge for those services.

(E) If the only restrictions on the advertising of legal services were those that apply to every type of advertising, most lawyers would advertise their services.


My understanding is below. Please let me know if there is a flaw in my reasoning.

Passage states that when lawyers advertise, they charge lower fees. Thus, to lower overall fees we should remove all restrictions on advertising. What do we need to know in order for this plan to work?

A) Since this choice uses "some" it still can cause an overall drop in prices
B) Not relevant. We're talking about lawyers lowering their prices, not whether or not consumers will use these services
C) CORRECT. If lawyers do not advertise, they will not decrease their prices. Hence for this plan to work, we need to confirm that lawyers will in fact advertise. C states this perfectly.
D) Same as A in the use of "some"
E) Not relevant. This is more on the legality of advertising than anything else.

The first sentence states "the fewer restrictions there are on advertising..legal services, the more lawyers there are who advertise"

Thus lifting this restriction results in (C) - more lawyers will advertise.

The argument states:

1.Fewer restrictions(X) -> more lawyers are to advertise(Y)
2. Lawyers who advertise charge less(Z)
3. Conclusion: Removal of restrictions (X) -> reduction of overall legal costs as lawyers would charge less (Z)


Now as we see above Y is what connects X to Z
That is what option C says...Lawyers would still advertise.

Hence C

sorry to ask again on same logic but i m trying to get hold of this :
The fewer restrictions there are on the advertising of legal services, the more lawyers there are who advertise their services
so, if fewer restriction, more advertising lawyer
so b implies a
there more adv implies fewer restriction

only if fewer restriction ,then more adv lawyer
a implies b
so If the restriction against advertisements that do not specify fee arrangements is removed, more lawyers will advertise their services.
that is c
So canwe decide that this is only if ?
beacuse once decided,rest answering is just a cake walk

The fewer restrictions there are on the advertising of legal services, the more lawyers there are who advertise their services.

This is equivalent to:
If there are fewer restrictions, then more lawyers advertise.
If A, then B.
So A implies B
and Not B implies not A.

Option (C) is correct.

Only if will usually come with words such as "necessary", "must" etc.
