Analyzing Arguments – Questions and Answers – Quiz 2

1. In the past, consumers would rarely walk into an ice cream store and order low-fat ice cream. But that isn’t the case today. An increasing health consciousness combined with a much bigger selection of tasty low-fat foods in all categories has made low-fat ice cream a very profitable item for ice cream store owners. This paragraph best supports the statement that

low-fat ice cream produces more revenue than other low-fat foods
ice cream store owners would be better off carrying only low-fat ice cream
ice cream store owners no longer think that low-fat ice cream is an unpopular item
low-fat ice cream is more popular than other kinds of ice cream

2. Today’s high school students spend too much time thinking about trivial and distracting matters such as fashion. Additionally, they often dress inappropriately on school grounds.

If students were required to wear uniforms, it would increase a sense of community and harmony in our schools and it would instill a sense of discipline in our students. Another positive effect would be that teachers and administrators would no longer have to act as clothing police, freeing them up to focus on more important issues. This paragraph best supports the statement that

inappropriate clothing leads to failing grades
students who wear school uniforms get into better colleges
teachers and administrators spend at least 25% of their time enforcing the dress code
school uniforms should be compulsory for high school students
