PT 34, Section 2, No. 14

I basically don't understand the function of the word 'trivially' in the argument. Anyone can explain to me? Thanks a lot

This is a prime example that you don't really need to fully understand the stimulus to be able to find the correct answer.

After reading the stimulus, the question you should ask is, why should we not take the claims serious - because the explanation is trivial. Then look at the answers, C is we shouldn't take trivial answers serious. It fits the structure of the arguement and is the credited answer (and the only one that would fit).

In this case I think it means simply or reduced to the simplest form/basis, like in a mathematical sense. I think.
