Question Stats:

50% (01:18) correct 49% (01:33) wrong based on 57 sessions
Implementing extensive wireless networks in cities would be a practical way to meet the needs of city households, schools, and businesses. Rural communities have found that wireless networks are both more reliable and cheaper than land-based networks.

Which of the following would most likely be cited by a supporter of the argument?

(A) Urban areas do not pose additional problems for the effective operation of wireless networks.
(B) Wireless networks work far better where population density is low.
(C) Iceland, a very rural country, successfully uses wireless networks.
(D) The expense of wireless transmission in areas with large buildings is much higher than in areas without such buildings.
(E) Poor neighborhoods have less access to internet services than do educators or businesses.

This is a question in which we have to reinforce our argument for some reason.

Implementing extensive wireless networks in cities would be a practical way to meet the needs of city households, schools, and businesses. Rural communities have found that wireless networks are both more reliable and cheaper than land-based networks.


D is tempting but we do not know anything about a skyscraper or other buildings and the relative expenses. Moreover, we do not know if in rural areas we do not have buildings AT ALL.

Ask for further assistance if you do need.

Regards

It cant be B because B says "Wireless networks work far better where population density is low" means villages/small towns. This statement is not supporting wireless network for cities whereas argument says that cities need wireless network as well. Hence only option A holds.

We need to find a statement that is most likely cited by a supporter of the argument. The argument states that implementing wireless networks in the city would be a practical way to meet needs. This is because rural communities have found that wireless networks are both more reliable and cheaper than land-based networks.

A- Correct. This is something proponents of the argument will pose since it negates the possibilities of any weakeners because of a change in location.
B- This weakens the argument since its saying wireless networks won't work as well in urban areas. Incorrect.
C- Irrelevant to talk about Iceland.
D- Again weakens the argument by stating a disadvantage to installing wireless networks in urban areas.
E- Access to internet is irrelevant here.

(A) Urban areas do not pose additional problems for the effective operation of wireless networks. - Correct, assumption is it will be as effective in urban as rural & there is no difference between both these areas
(B) Wireless networks work far better where population density is low. - Irrelevant - no where do we speak about population density
(C) Iceland, a very rural country, successfully uses wireless networks. - Out of scope
(D) The expense of wireless transmission in areas with large buildings is much higher than in areas without such buildings. - Irrelevant we talk about urban/rural not large/small building
(E) Poor neighborhoods have less access to internet services than do educators or businesses.- Irrelevant as this has nothing to do with urban/rural comparison
