Time and time again it has been shown that students who attend colleges with low faculty/student ratios get the most well-rounded education. As a result, when my children are ready to attend college, I'll be sure they attend a school with a very small student population.

Which of the following, if true, identifies the greatest flaw in the reasoning above?

A. A low faculty/student ratio is the effect of a well-rounded education, not its source.

B. Intelligence should be considered the result of childhood environment, not advanced education.

C. A very small student population does not by itself, ensure a low faculty/student ratio.

D. Parental desires and preferences rarely determines a child's choice of a college or university.

E. Students must take advantage of the low faculty/student ratio by intentionally choosing small classes.

The argument talks about faculty/student ratios and the person states that "Ill be sure they attend a school with a very small student population." The comparision is incorrect.

Option (C) clearly points this out.

OA is C, ofcourse C doesnot talk about ratio being low, but it clearly addresses the flaw in the conclusion.

C, low student body but also a low number of professors might equal to high student/prof ratio

This question seems to be wrong. Please help me with this.

Question asks us to find the 'flaw in the reason'.

[Reason] - students who attend colleges {f/s} -> students get most well rounded education.

[Conclusion] - children send to school with low student population.

Here, we need to find flaw in the reason and not in the conclusion. The only option which highlights this is 'B'.

Please reply...............

The passage states that since students of colleges with low faculty/student ratios get the most well-rounded education the author wrongly infers that schools with a very small student population will provide a well-rounded education.

A. A low faculty/student ratio is the effect of a well-rounded education, not its source-Incorrect. The passage does not support this choice. This is not a flaw in argument. In fact the opposite is implied.

B. Intelligence should be considered the result of childhood environment, not advanced education- Incorrect. Nothing in the passage talks about childhood environment. Completely out of scope

C. A very small student population does not by itself, ensure a low faculty/student ratio- Correct. Matches our prethinking.

D. Parental desires and preferences rarely determines a child's choice of a college or university- Incorrect. Nothing in the passage implies this. This is not a flaw in argument.

E. Students must take advantage of the low faculty/student ratio by intentionally choosing small classes- Incorrect.
Although it might be true, it is not a flaw in argument.

this question is from Kaplan.
A,C,E are all common patterns. Nevertheless, only C is the right assumption.
