Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends? (more)

Although there is no record of poet Edmund Spenser’s parentage, we do know that as a youth Spenser attended the Merchant Tailors’ School in London for a period between 1560 and 1570. Records from this time indicate that the Merchant Tailors’ Guild then had only three members named Spenser: Robert Spenser, listed as a gentleman; Nicholas Spenser, elected the Guild’s Warden in 1568; and John Spenser, listed as a “journeyman cloth-maker.” Of these, the last was likely the least affluent of the three—and most likely Edmund’s father, since school accounting records list Edmund as a scholar who attended the school at a reduced fee.

 

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A)Anybody in sixteenth-century London who made clothing professionally would have had to be a member of the Merchant Tailors’ Guild.

(B) The fact that Edmund Spenser attended the Merchant Tailors’ School did not necessarily mean that he planned to become a tailor.
(C) No member of the Guild could become Guild warden in sixteenth century London unless he was a gentleman.
(D) Most of those whose fathers were members of the Merchant Tailors’ Guild were students at the Merchant Tailors’ School.
(E) The Merchant Tailors’ School did not reduce its fees for the children of the more affluent Guild members.

E - There could be another reason to explain why Edmund attended the school at a reduced fee other then the economic situation, such as merit.

Hi,

Once you set your target score you will not be able to change it. Since your study schedule is based on your target score, that too will remain the same.

With regards to using the resources here is how you can access them:

  • The practice tests on your dashboard provide you with sets of varying difficulty levels which you can give under timed and untimed conditions.

  • The resources tab has sub-tabs. There are videos on varied topics, while the topic gym provides you with concept notes, myriad blogs are there with prep and application based topics, and then there are the QS rankings of Universities. 
  • The directory tab gives you all the resources for your application related needs. You can discover universities and programs under the program tab. You can join university groups to interact with the community. You can find out about our tutors and also have a chance to get an admission consulting from experts in the field. 
  • If you have any queries related to an exam or the platform or your application, you can go to the QNA forum and post your queries there.
  • The tutors also provide personalized tutoring sessions wherein you can have a customized class planned according to your needs and areas for improvement.   

I hope this helps.
