"According to a recent report from our marketing department, during the past year, fewer people attended Super Screen-produced movies than in any other year. And yet the percentage of positive reviews by movie reviewers about specific Super Screen movies actually increased during the past year. Clearly, the contents of these reviews are not reaching enough of our prospective viewers. Thus, the problem lies not with the quality of our movies but with the public's lack of awareness that movies of good quality are available. Super Screen should, therefore, allocate a greater share of its budget next year to reaching the public through advertising."

Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered in order to decide whether the recommendation and the argument on which it is based are reasonable. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to evaluate the recommendation.

Essay:

The argument concludes the percentage of positive reviews by movie reviewers about super screen movies increased during the past year. This conclusion is based on the premises fewer people attended the super screen movies than in any other year. The reasoning in the argument is logically flawed. However, because it relies on assumptions that appear ambiguous.
The argument fails to consider that the number of people attended the movie. The argument claims that fewer people attended the movie. But the comparison of absolute numbers is not mentioned.
In addition, people might have different opinions. If one person liked the movie that doesn't mean everyone will like it. Every individual has different opinions. It could be the possibility that the number of people who watched the movie is of the same choices.
Lastly, the statistical data is not provided. It could be the possibility that the percent of the 'positive review to the total number of people watched a movie' is higher in previous years than this year.
In absence of this additional information, the argument is logically unsound. If the argument demonstrated, the total number of people attended and positive reviewers of this year and the then the argument would be much stronger. Without additional information, there isn't much reason to believe the conclusion.
