A The temperature can change very quickly in the course of one hour.
B Experts neglected the smog and pollution in smaller cities.
C These 25 days of symmetric temperatures were due to different atmospheric fronts.
D These 25 days are not representative of normal temperature measurements.

Which of the following conclusions can be properly drawn from the statement above ?

A The temperature can change very quickly in the course of one hour.
Not sure. Temp. can or cannot change in course of one, two, three, or any number of hours.


B Experts neglected the smog and pollution in smaller cities.
Not sure. May be experts neglected or may be experts indeed considered this factor but the actual reason is something else.


C These 25 days of symmetric temperatures were due to different atmospheric fronts.
Not Sure. No were in argument this reasoning is mentioned so there could be many reasoning for symmetric temp.


D These 25 days are not representative of normal temperature measurements.
Sure. Consider this line in argument - "..is always 2 to 3 degrees higher .. ". This confirms that higher temp in big cities is actually the NORMAL representations. So the non-symmetric temp. of 25 days are NOT normal.


E Higher Temperatures in larger cities are caused by factors other than smog and pollution.
Not sure. This may be the factor, or may be the actual cause is something else.

I marked E. I am not very sure, but I think that D is challenging a statement from the argument.
This is like saying that " good boys pray. Ram is a good boy because he prayed for 3 days."
Conclusion- Those were not the normal days. ?? :(

Hi rekhabishop,

" good boys pray. Ram is a good boy because he prayed for 3 days."

is n't it mistaken reversal => \(Good boy -> Pray\)
\(Ram prayed for 3 days -> Good boy\)

May be i am not understanding your reasoning. Please explain

thanks
