When police pull over a driver suspected of operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, they often request that the driver submit to a breathalyzer test, which determines the driver’s blood alcohol content by measuring the alcohol in the driver’s breath. If the driver agrees to the test and it indicates a blood alcohol level higher than the law allows, this evidence leads to a charge of driving while under the influence. However, in many states, refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test is itself a crime.

The statements above most strongly support which of the following conclusions?

A. In many states, a failed breathalyzer test results in a harsher sentence than does the refusal to submit to the test.
B. A driver pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence will be charged with a crime.
C. Some breathalyzer tests indicate that a driver’s blood alcohol content is above the legal limit when it is in fact not.
D. All drivers pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence are asked to submit to a breathalyzer test.
E. In some states, a driver whose blood alcohol content is above the legal limit and who is pulled over by the police may be charged with a crime whether the driver submits to a breathalyzer test or not.

Let’s rephrase the question.

Police generally pull over a driver driving under the influence and then often request them to take a breathalyzer test. If the blood alcohol limit is found above the legal limit the driver is charged with driving under the influence whether he/she submits to the test or not.

A. In many states, a failed breathalyzer test results in a harsher sentence than does the refusal to submit to the test.- Incorrect. Absolutely nothing in this passage mentions the severity of the sentence. Out of Scope.

B. A driver pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence will be charged with a crime-Incorrect.
Nothing in the passage justifies this choice. Further avoid answer choices that use extremely strong words such as will be charged with a crime etc as the passage doesn’t support such strong words.


C. Some breathalyzer tests indicate that a driver’s blood alcohol content is above the legal limit when it is in fact not.- Incorrect. Nothing in the passage talks about this. Out of Scope.

D. All drivers pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence are asked to submit to a breathalyzer test.- Incorrect.
As stated avoid answer choices that use extremely strong words such all drivers pulled over as the passage doesn’t support such strong words. It clearly mentions that police often request. Note: Often is not the same as all.



E. In some states, a driver whose blood alcohol content is above the legal limit and who is pulled over by the police may be charged with a crime whether the driver submits to a breathalyzer test or not. Correct.

This answer clearly captures the conclusion of the paragraph and matches our rephrase.

In some states
Driver agrees to a breathalyzer test + test indicates a higher level than the law allows --> leads to a charge of driving under influence of alcohol.

Some other states
refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test is itself a crime.

Option A - Incorrect.
we do not know anything about the harshness of the punishments.

Option B - Incorrect.
Only if the person refuses to submit to a test (in some states) or if the person fails the test.

Option C - Incorrect.
We cannot infer about the validity of breathalyzer tests.

Option D - Incorrect.
Not true. The paragraph clearly states - "they often request that the driver submit to a breathalyzer test".

Option E - correct answer.
In many other states -
"does not submit" - will be charged with refusal to submit to a test.
"does submit to a test" - will be charged if the legal limit is exceeded.

In most CR questions, answer choices with extreme words are mostly wrong.In option D,the word "all" makes it suspicious and D does not make any sense either.So E is the only possible choice.
