Question Stats:

75% (01:14) correct 24% (01:40) wrong based on 53 sessions
Peter: More than ever before in Risland, college graduates with science degrees are accepting permanent jobs in other fields. That just goes to show that scientists in Risland are not being paid enough.

Lila: No, it does not. These graduates are not working in science for the simple reason that there are not enough jobs in science in Risland to employ all of these graduates.

Which of the following, if true in Risland, would most undermine the reasoning in Peter's argument?

(A) The college graduates with science degrees who are not working in science are currently earning lower salaries than they would earn as scientists.
(B) Fewer college students than ever before are receiving degrees in science.
(C) The number of jobs in science has steadily risen in the last decade.
(D) A significant number of college graduates with science degrees worked at low-paying jobs while they were in college.
(E) Every year some recent college graduates with science degrees accept permanent jobs in nonscientific fields.
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

Can you please hide the answer. It's disturbing to know the answer even before I have read the paragraph or attempted the answers

To undermine Peter's argument we should say that those with science degree in Risland actually earn more. The choice A shows that.

This one was tricky.

Pete: Scientists - In Science - ↓ SALARIES

Choice A: Scientists - NOT in Science - ↓ SALARIES

So, if this were true, Pete would not be able to blame the LOW SALARIES in SCIENCE on the fact that Science grads are working in other fields because their salaries in NON SCIENCE fields are LOW TOO.

That was my reasoning.

I think the deceptively simple language makes it easier to get thrown. You kind of let your guard down, like, I totally get this, when in fact you haven't actually thought it through. I actually got this wrong until I saw the right answer and looked at it again.
