PT 29, Question # 13

Postby jason8821 » Tue Jan 05, 2010 4:49 pm

Ok, I don't know if I am over thinking this question or if it is truly difficult. None the less, this is the only question the last 3-4 logical reasoning sections that I just do not understand. If there is ever one that I don't understand, it usually comes much later in the section than # 13.

Can anyone explain the answer?

Ok the first step in determining the principle underling the argument is to define the argument and the reasoning advanced to support it:

Argument The manager should be held responsible...
Reasoning: The delays are typical and he should have planned for it

The principle has to support the conclusion that the manager is responsible while broadly taking into consideration the evidence advanced for it.

Thats what A does here. It states that the manager should take foreseeable problems into consideration when making decisions. Our manager didn't- that supports the argument that he should be held responsible -while expressing the evidence presented - The delays were typical so he should of prepared- in broader terms.

The above question is not the one I am referring to so I will actually just type this question out in hopes that maybe it will help me figure it out.


The top priority of the school administrator should be student attendance. No matter how good the teachers texts, and facilities are, none of these does any good if few students come to school.


Son of a bitch, right when I was writing this down I realized it was a "LEAST" or ParallelX question, I swear I do this at least once each test. Damn it.
