PT 33 Section 2 Question 24 RC - Not just this question

Postby Hey-O » Sat May 22, 2010 12:31 am

So this is a general how does the author feel about blank question. I guess I can see the reasoning but I can also see the reasoning for ambivalent.

When I'm doing RC I always look for why the other answers are wrong rather than why the right answer is right.

So why is ambivalent wrong?

And what method is there for figuring out the answers to other questions like this? Where there appears to be two valid answers?

Bump - Anyone have any tips for how to answer author attitude questions? They just seem so arbitrary sometimes.

I used the statement by the author that 18th century lawyers "frustrated" the reform prescribed by Bentham as the basis for my answer.

The author seems to hold a disdain for the previous law of evidence, calling it "irrational," and the author is approving of Bentham's change. Thus, because the author is a proponent of the change this means that the author is also going to hold a negative opinion of those trying to stop the change. For me this narrows it down to critical and scornful, and from the words used in the passage, the author merely has a disliking of them rather than an outright hatred which led me to critical.
