I posted this earlier. Anybody want to reply? It's a different take on the consensus answer that is posted on the master list.For number 3 on the list, I distinctly remember two answer choices that caught my eye.The first I DIDN"T pick:"If the store sold mostly calendars and is not in the mall, then it is probably not open year round." Didn't choose this one b/c the argument doesn't tell you about what the characteristics of Stores Selling Mostly Calendars (SSMC) who aren't open year-round are. The args tell you about the characteristics of SSMC that ARE open year-round. I went with the one that addressed what you knew:"If SSMC and is open year round, it is probably in a mall." This is something that we know for sure.What do you think?
Also, the one with milk production. I have a slight issue with this one as well.The reasoning seemed to be something along the lines of: Farmers who want to increase production in their most productive cows should increase their feed intake. This serves to decrease the percentage of energy used for maintenance of bodily functions (whatever the hell that means) and increase the amount of total energy available for milk production.The main point is that farmers will produce more milk if they up their most productive cows' feed intake. Why? Because there will be more energy available for milk production.The answer I chose identified the logical gap: Even if there is more energy available, who's to say that the additional increase in energy will go toward milk production? The answer said this more or less: "The same percentage of energy available will be used for milk production"Am I way off? Please let me know!
