Question Stats:

38% (01:09) correct 61% (01:00) wrong based on 42 sessions
Manufacturers of household appliances in the United States are introducing an array of computerized technologies in the work of many of their factories in an effort to regain a lead eroded by international competition. On the basis of changes that have already taken place, experts predict a golden age for the consumer of better-designed and betterbuilt products.

Which of the following, if true, would LEAST support the experts' claim that appliances produced by computerized technologies will be better built?

(A) Computerized inventory procedures ensure that parts are ordered in sufficient quantities and that production moves smoothly and consistently.
(B) Computer-directed machines carry out repetitive tasks with the result that errors due to human fatigue are eliminated.
(C) Computer-controlled ultrasound devices are better able to detect hidden flaws and defects that require repair than are human inspectors.
(D) The flow of heat used to weld parts together is more consistent when directed by computer programs and results in a more accurate and uniform weld.
(E) Computer-driven screwdrivers ensure that screws used in appliances will be consistently tight.

Which of the following, if true, would LEAST support the experts' claim that appliances produced by computerized technologies will be better built?

(A) Computerized inventory procedures ensure that parts are ordered in sufficient quantities and that production moves smoothly and consistently.
(B) Computer-directed machines carry out repetitive tasks with the result that errors due to human fatigue are eliminated.
(C) Computer-controlled ultrasound devices are better able to detect hidden flaws and defects that require repair than are human inspectors.
(D) The flow of heat used to weld parts together is more consistent when directed by computer programs and results in a more accurate and uniform weld.
(E) Computer-driven screwdrivers ensure that screws used in appliances will be consistently tight.

With all logical reasoning style GRE questions, first clearly identify the question task. In this case, we seek a choice that least supports the claim, so we will eliminate any choices that DO support the claim.

The claim, is identified in the question, so we already know that the goal is to find choices that support "claim that appliances produced by computerized technologies will be better built".

Now, evaluate the choices to see if they support the claim based on the evidence provided in the prompt and eliminate them if they do.

(A) Computerized inventory procedures ensure that parts are ordered in sufficient quantities and that production moves smoothly and consistently.
This would only improve the ordering and inventory process, not the appliances themselves. This is irrelevant and does not support the claim. Keep Choice A

(B) Computer-directed machines carry out repetitive tasks with the result that errors due to human fatigue are eliminated.
This would improve the appliance production process and support the claim. Eliminate Choice B

(C) Computer-controlled ultrasound devices are better able to detect hidden flaws and defects that require repair than are human inspectors.
This would improve the appliance production process and support the claim. Eliminate Choice C

(D) The flow of heat used to weld parts together is more consistent when directed by computer programs and results in a more accurate and uniform weld.
This would improve the appliance production process and support the claim. Eliminate Choice D

(E) Computer-driven screwdrivers ensure that screws used in appliances will be consistently tight.
This would improve the appliance production process and support the claim. Eliminate Choice E

Eliminate all choices that are reversals which support the original claim. Select Choice A as the information that supports the claim LEAST.
