Open 3 Answers 70 Views
Choi: All other factors being equal, children whose parents earned doctorates are more likely to earn a doctorate than children whose parents did not earn doctorates.
Hart: But consider this: Over 70 percent of all doctorate holders do not have a parent that also holds a doctorate.
Which of the following is the most accurate evaluation of Hart's reply?
A) It establishes that Choi's claim is an exaggeration.
B) If true, it effectively demonstrates that Choi's claim cannot be accurate.
C) It is consistent with Choi's claim.
D) It provides alternative reasons for accepting Choi's claim.
E) It mistakes what is necessary for an event with what is sufficient to determine that the event will occur.

In that case, I think that it's more suitable to say the statement is irrelevant as to whether Choi's claim is true or not.
