issue5:

Claim: Governments must ensure that their major cities receive the financial support they need in order to thrive.        

Reason: It is primarily in cities that a nation's cultural traditions are preserved and generated.        

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based.

argument 3 :
The following appeared as a letter to the editor from a Central Plaza store owner.

"Over the past two years, the number of shoppers in Central Plaza has been
steadily decreasing while the popularity of skateboarding has increased
dramatically. Many Central Plaza store owners believe that the decrease in their
business is due to the number of skateboard users in the plaza. There has also been
a dramatic increase in the amount of litter and vandalism throughout the plaza.
Thus, we recommend that the city prohibit skateboarding in Central Plaza. If
skateboarding is prohibited here, we predict that business in Central Plaza will
return to its previously high levels."

Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered
in order to decide whether the recommendation is likely to have the predicted
result. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to
evaluate the recommendation.

Issue 70:

Claim: Universities should require every student to take a variety of courses
outside the student's major field of study.

Reason: Acquiring knowledge of various academic disciplines is the best way to
become truly educated.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree
with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based.

Argument 65:

When Stanley Park first opened, it was the largest, most heavily used public park
in town. It is still the largest park, but it is no longer heavily used. Video cameras
mounted in the park's parking lots last month revealed the park's drop in
popularity: the recordings showed an average of only 50 cars per day. In contrast,
tiny Carlton Park in the heart of the business district is visited by more than 150
people on a typical weekday. An obvious difference is that Carlton Park, unlike
Stanley Park, provides ample seating. Thus, if Stanley Park is ever to be as
popular with our citizens as Carlton Park, the town will obviously need to provide
more benches, thereby converting some of the unused open areas into spaces
suitable for socializing.

Write a response in which you examine the stated and/or unstated assumptions of
the argument. Be sure to explain how the argument depends on these assumptions
and what the implications are for the argument if the assumptions prove
unwarranted.

argument171
171) The following appeared as a letter to the editor from the owner of a skate shop in Central Plaza.

Two years ago the city voted to prohibit skateboarding in Central Plaza. They claimed that skateboard users were responsible for the litter and vandalism that were keeping other visitors from coming to the plaza. In the past two years, however, there has only been a small increase in the number of visitors to Central Plaza, and litter and vandalism are still problematic. Skateboarding is permitted in Monroe Park, however, and there is no problem with litter or vandalism there. In order to restore Central Plaza to its former glory, then, we recommend that the city lift its prohibition on skateboarding in the plaza.

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.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take.

Argument 65
Arg 65 measures to promote a park

When Stanley Park first opened, it was the largest, most heavily used public park in town. It is still the largest park, but it is no longer heavily used.

As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.

Argument 17/93(记不清是哪一道了)

Arg 17 Change to news and talk for radio station

17) The following appeared in a memorandum from the manager of WWAC radio station.

To reverse a decline in listener numbers, our owners have decided that WWAC must change from its current rock-music format. The decline has occurred despite population growth in our listening area, but that growth has resulted mainly from people moving here after their retirement. We must make listeners of these new residents. We could switch to a music format tailored to their tastes, but a continuing decline in local sales of recorded music suggests limited interest in music. Instead we should change to a news and talk format, a form of radio that is increasingly popular in our area.

Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument.

93) The following appeared in a memorandum from the manager of WWAC radio station.

WWAC must change from its current rock-music format because the number of listeners has been declining, even though the population in our listening area has been growing. The population growth has resulted mainly from people moving to our area after their retirement, and we must make listeners of these new residents. But they seem to have limited interest in music: several local stores selling recorded music have recently closed. Therefore, just changing to another kind of music is not going to increase our audience. Instead, we should adopt a news-and-talk format, a form of radio that is increasingly popular in our area.

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.

Teachers' salaries should be based on the academic performance of their students.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position.


argument 78
The following appeared in a memo from the vice president of a food distribution company with food storage warehouses in several cities. "Recently, we signed a contract with the Fly-Away Pest Control Company to provide pest control services at our fast-food warehouse in Palm City, but last month we discovered that over $20,000 worth of food there had been destroyed by pest damage. Meanwhile, the Buzzoff Pest Control Company, which we have used for many years, continued to service our warehouse in Wintervale, and last month only $10,000 worth of the food stored there had been destroyed by pest damage. Even though the price charged by Fly-Away is considerably lower, our best means of saving money is to return to Buzzoff for all our pest control services."

Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument.

Claim: The surest indicator of a great nation is not the achievements of its rulers, artists, or scientists.

Reason: The surest indicator of a great nation is actually the welfare of all its people.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based.

Argument 69/115

The following appeared in a memo from a vice president of a large, highly diversified company.

"Ten years ago our company had two new office buildings constructed as regional headquarters for two different regions. The buildings were erected by two different construction companies—Alpha and Zeta. Even though the two buildings had identical floor plans, the building constructed by Zeta cost 30 percent more to build, and its expenses for maintenance last year were twice those of the building constructed by Alpha. Furthermore, the energy consumption of the Zeta building has been higher than that of the Alpha building every year since its construction. Such data, plus the fact that Alpha has a stable workforce with little employee turnover, indicate that we should use Alpha rather than Zeta for our contemplated new building project."

Write a response in which you examine the stated and/or unstated assumptions of the argument. Be sure to explain how the argument depends on these assumptions and what the implications are for the argument if the assumptions prove unwarranted.
