A is the most straight forward answer. E talks about different grades of plastic/glass which is not discussed in the stimulus.

I too go with E! A doesnt state that the resulted product holds lower grade than the lowest commercial plastic grade!

A, there is no such application of these products in market..it indicates it is possible that plastics cant be made from the currently lowest plastics. though it is an extreme ans yet it seems correct to me.
B, opposes the argument.
C, the argument doesnt talk about cost
D, if the quality is undisguisable even by the scientist, obviously public will not be able to disguish the difference in quality. if it is the case, then why there is no application of worse quality plastics than the current lowest grade plastics.
E, the argument doesn't says anything about the quality difference of glasses. rather it says recycled glasses yield product of the equal quality.that means no difference at all.

Hi chetan2u,

Can you please explain why A is a better answer than E. The argument does not state that Products cannot be made out of lowest commercial grade plastic. Instead the argument states that there are no uses (applications) from low commercial grade plastic. How can A be the answer in this case.

On the other hand the argument states that recycled glass does not differ much in quality than recycled plastic. Why is E not a right choice?

Hi,

the Q

Quote:
When glass products are made from recycled glass, the resulting products can be equal in quality to glass products made from quartz sand, the usual raw material. When plastics are recycled, however, the result is inevitably a plastic of a lower grade than the plastic from which it is derived. Moreover, no applications have been found for grades of plastic that are lower than the currently lowest commercial grade.
Which one of the following is a conclusion that can be properly drawn from the statements above?
(A) Products cannot presently be made out of plastic recycled entirely from the currently lowest commercial grade.

(E) The difference in quality between different grades of glass is not as great as that between different grades of plastic

lets see thetwo statements--
(A) Products cannot presently be made out of plastic recycled entirely from the currently lowest commercial grade.

the two statements that should be looked into-
1) When plastics are recycled, however, the result is inevitably a plastic of a lower grade than the plastic from which it is derived.
2) Moreover, no applications have been found for grades of plastic that are lower than the currently lowest commercial grade.
when the currently lowest commercial grade is recycled , the result will be a LOWER grade than the currently lowest commercial grade. But as we see in 2 above, no applications have been found for lower grades than the currently lowest commercial grade. so this means CHOICE A..

(E) The difference in quality between different grades of glass is not as great as that between different grades of plastic
two reasons for this not to be the answer..
1) we are talking of lower plastic grade and the conclusion should be related to what we are moving towards.
2) Even if it can be taken as conclusion, it does not follow naturally from the PARA. Recycled glass is of higher quality and recycled plastic is not. THAT IS IT.
But teh choice encompasses or shifts the scope to different grades and not DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY BETWEEN RAW AND RECYCLED.
