Section 3:Critical Reasoning: Two Passages Are Given
1. Which Of The Following Best Completes The Passage Below?
In A Survey Of Job Applicants, Twofifths Admitted To Being At Least A Little
Dishonest. However,
The Survey May Underestimate The Proportion Of Job Applicants Who Are Dishonest,
Because____.
A. Some Dishonest People Taking The Survey Might Have Claimed On The Survey To
Be Honest
B. Some Generally Honest People Taking The Survey Might Have Claimed On The
Survey To Be
Dishonest
C. Some People Who Claimed On The Survey To Be At Least A Little Dishonest May
Be Very
Dishonest
D. Some People Who Claimed On The Survey To Be Dishonest May Have Been Answering
Honestly
E. Some People Who Are Not Job Applicants Are Probably At Least A Little
Dishonest
Answer With Explanation:
A Is The Best Answer.
If Applicants Who Are In Fact Dishonest Claimed To Be Honest, The Survey Results
Would Show A
Smaller Proportion Of Dishonest Applicants Than Actually Exists. Therefore, This
Choice Is The
Best Answer. B Is Inappropriate Because Generally Honest Applicants Who Claimed
To Be
Dishonest Could Contribute To The Overestimation, But Not To The
Underestimation, Of Dishonest
Applicants. D Is Inappropriate Because Applicants Who Admitted Their Dishonesty
Would Not
Contribute To An Underestimation Of The Proportion Of Dishonest Applicants. C
And E Are
Inappropriate Because The Argument Is Concerned Neither With Degrees Of
Dishonesty Nor With
The Honesty Of Nonapplicants.
2. The Average Life Expectancy For The United States Population As A
Whole Is 73.9 Years, But
Children Born In Hawaii Will Live An Average Of 77 Years, And Those Born In
Louisiana, 71.7
Years. If A Newlywed Couple From Louisiana Were To Begin Their Family In Hawaii,
Therefore, Their
Children Would Be Expected To Live Longer Than Would Be The Case If The Family
Remained In
Louisiana.
Which Of The Following, If True, Would Most Seriously Weaken The Conclusion
Drawn In The
Passage?
A. Insurance Company Statisticians Do Not Believe That Moving To Hawaii Will
Significantly
Lengthen The Average Louisianan's Life.
B. The Governor Of Louisiana Has Falsely Alleged That Statistics For His State
Are Inaccurate.
C. The Longevity Ascribed To Hawaii's Current Population Is Attributable Mostly
To Genetically
Determined Factors.
D. Thirty Percent Of All Louisianans Can Expect To Live Longer Than 77 Years.
E. Most Of The Hawaiian Islands Have Levels Of Air Pollution Well Below The
National Average
For The United States.
Answer With Explanation:
C Is The Best Answer.
This Choice Suggests That A Significant Proportion Of Hawaii's Population Is
Genetically
Predisposed To Be Long Lived. Since Louisianans Are Not Necessarily So
Predisposed, And Since
The Louisianans' Children Will Acquire Their Genetic Characteristics From Their
Parents, Not From
Their Birthplace, This Choice Presents A Reason To Doubt That Hawaiian Born
Children Of Native
Louisianans Will Have An Increased Life Expectancy. Therefore, This Choice Is
The Best Answer.
Because The Conclusion Concerns People Born In Hawaii, Not The Average
Louisianan, A Does
Not Weaken The Conclusion. Because The Governor's Allegation Is False, It Cannot
Affect The
Conclusion. D Fails To Weaken The Conclusion Because It Is Consistent With The
Information Given
And The Conclusion About Life Expectancy. By Suggesting That Hawaii's
Environment Is In One
Respect Particularly Healthy, E Supports The Conclusion.
