June 2007, Logical Reasoning 2, Question 23



Summary
The essence of flaw questions on the GRE involves identifying errors within an argument by dissecting its conclusion and evidence.
  • Flaw questions require understanding the argument's structure, including its conclusion and supporting evidence.
  • The argument's flaw often lies in unwarranted leaps from evidence to conclusion, such as equating selfish motivation with unreliability.
  • Identifying the flaw involves critically evaluating each answer choice to find the one that accurately reflects the argument's error.
  • The correct answer choice pinpoints the mistake of assuming that selfish motivations inherently make promises unreliable.
