June 2007, Logical Reasoning 1, Question 4



Summary
The analysis of a GRE flaw question reveals the importance of identifying the argument's conclusion and evidence, and understanding the common error of assuming the rejection of one argument proves the opposite.
  • Flaw questions require breaking down the argument into conclusion and evidence.
  • The conclusion is often flagged by keywords such as 'it is clear that'.
  • Evidence against an argument does not inherently validate the opposite conclusion.
  • Identifying bias in evidence does not automatically negate the claims made in the biased report.
  • Correctly analyzing the argument's structure and the evidence's validity is crucial for selecting the right answer.
