#### 1000 CR question NO 13

Wed Mar 21, 2007 7:57 pm
Hi,

The answer is E but I think C) also makes sense for assumption... What do you think??

The earth's resources are being depleted much too fast. To correct this, the United States must keep its resource consumption at present levels for many years to come.

The argument above depends on which of the following assumptions?

(A) Per capita resource consumption in the United States is at an all-time high.

(B) The United States wastes resources.

(C) The United States uses more resources than any other country.

(D) The United States imports most of the resources it uses.

(E) Curbing U.S. resource consumption will significantly retard world resource depletion.

The argument does not compare United State's consumption with any
other country. All we know is that the US consumption is large enough
to make a difference in the Earth's resources.

C takes the above a bit too far in saying that the US uses resources
more than any other country.

E is within scope
