A society in which there are many crimes, such as thefts and murders, should not be called "lawless". That is an abuse of the meaning of words. As a suffix, "-less" means "without", so "lawless" means "without laws". However, a society that has no laws has no crimes, because no laws can be broken. A lawless society would, therefore, be a crimeless society. So what some have termed a lawless society should actually be called "crimeful".
If the statements in the passage are true, which one of the following must also be true?
A) A society that has laws has crimes
B) A society that has no crimes has no laws
C) A society that has many laws has many crimes
D) A society that has some crimes has some laws
E) A society that has many crimes has many laws
The correct answer choice is D. However, I selected answer choice B...but I'm thinking this choice is wrong because it is a mistaken reversal. Can anyone help me out in regards to why D is correct??
