HideShow timer Statistics

Studies show that children who watch too much television are more likely than others to become obese adults. Jacob, who is an obese adult, must have watched more television as a child than I did, since I am not obese.

Which of the following most closely parallels the logical structure above ?

A. The hardware store on Main Street must have had a bigger advertisement in the Sunday paper than the hardware store around the corner had. The hardware store on Main Street sold twice as many items as the hardware store around the corner did last week, and a Sunday paper advertisement has been shown to increase the number of items sold.

B. Studies show that large dogs lives shorter lives, on average, than small dogs do. Rex is a large dog and therefore might be expected to live a shorter life than Mustang, who is a small dog.

C.The county superintendent stated that all schools would be canceled for the day if snowfall last night were greater than six inches. Therefore, since the snowfall was only five inches, we must be following the usual school schedule today.

D. According to research, people with unusual musical talent do not achieve their true potential unless they are given formal lessons. Therefore Jesse, who has achieved his full musical potential without formal lessons must not have unusual musical talent.

E. People who like vegetables also like fruits. Elizabeth does not like fruits, so she must not like vegetables either.

Let us make the argument simple

Children---> more TV-->Obese
Jacob --> Obese
I---> Slim
Therefore Jacob watched more T.V than I did


Option A The hardware store on Main Street must have had a bigger advertisement in the Sunday paper than the hardware store around the corner had. The hardware store on Main Street sold twice as many items as the hardware store around the corner did last week, and a Sunday paper advertisement has been shown to increase the number of items sold.


hardware store on Main Street=A
hardware store around the corner=B

Shop-> big adv---> Sell more goods

A-->big advertisement
B--->small advertisement
Therefore A sell more goods than B

The author has built the argument on the lines that A causes B and it’s only A which causes B. There are no other factors. "Watching television" leads to obesity and hence, Jacob’s obesity is the result of watching television. Hence, answer choice "A" brings out the analogy perfectly. Sales increased more in the shop on the main street than in the one at the corner only because of the bigger advertisement and nothing else.
