HideShow timer Statistics

The public is sufficiently served when the Securities Regulation Department recruits specialists from our nation's financial establishment, academia and elsewhere with a thorough understanding of sophisticated financial products, transactions, and practices. These specialists make investigations smarter and quicker, increase the volume of relevant investigations, and enable society to better allocate its resources.

The argument above presupposes the truth of which of the following in substantiating its conclusion?

A. The fulfillment of a regulatory body's obligations to society is influenced by the number of the transactions.

B. Knowledge of an area or field by a regulatory body's specialists is in some way connected to the fulfillment of that body's obligations.

C. To be considered effective, a regulatory body should not allow any violations.

D. Some security law is challenging to enforce.

E. Other regulatory bodies that have been able to deploy specialists with greater knowledge of the aspects being regulated are better able to enforce those regulations.

This is an assumption question - Must bolster the conclusion

A. The fulfillment of a regulatory body's obligations to society is influenced by the number of the transactions. - transactions of what? meaning of this doesnt make sense

B. Knowledge of an area or field by a regulatory body's specialists is in some way connected to the fulfillment of that body's obligations. - if you negate this, the conclusion falls apart. Had there been no connection of the knowledge of an area or field by a regulatory body's specialists with the fulfillment of that body's obligations, why would the regulatory body be advised to recruit such specialists ?

C. To be considered effective, a regulatory body should not allow any violations. - The effectiveness of this regulatory body is not questioned to have allowed violations. The entire premise talks about serving in a better way,implying it already is serving rightly and recruiting specialists would only improve their service.

D. Some security law is challenging to enforce. - This doesn't mean that currently, the regulatory body is unable to enforce challenging laws and would therefore need to recruit specialists. - Invalid

E. Other regulatory bodies that have been able to deploy specialists with greater knowledge of the aspects being regulated are better able to enforce those regulations. - this actually strengthens the conclusion by providing example to directly extrapolate the reasoning to the current conclusion. However, this is not the assumption.
