PT 54 - RC - Question 26

Postby ConsideringLawSchool » Fri Feb 05, 2010 2:09 pm

C, D, and E are irrelevant.

Both A and B look like appropriate answers to me. What am I missing? Thanks.

Does the passage compare groupthink and low-cohesion groups anywhere?

I don't see it.
P1 discusses the general advantages of high-cohesion groups over low.
P2 including lines 26-28 discusses the pitfalls of high-cohesion and identifies one set of them as "groupthink"
P3 further discusses groupthink, the role cohesiveness plays in such groups, and calls to continue to study this subject.

I thought the sentence "the danger is not that individuals will conceal objections they harbor regarding a proposal favored by the majority" (as in low-cohesion) "but that they will think the proposal is a good one without attempting to carry out a critical scrutiny" (as in groupthink) is a comparison, no?
