For this week’s Verbal Wednesday, we will be solving questions on Critical Reasoning – Find the assumption. Find the assumption questions test the test takers ability to understand and link logical parts of an argument. It also assesses a candidate’s thinking and comprehension skills. It is important to get these question types right because a majority of Critical Reasoning questions on the test depend on this question type.
Solve the following question:
1. Until now, only injectable vaccines against influenza have been available. Parents are reluctant to subject children to the pain of injections, but adults, who are at risk of serious complications from influenza, are commonly vaccinated. A new influenza vaccine, administered painlessly in a nasal spray, is effective for children. However, since children seldom develop serious complications from influenza, no significant public health benefit would result from widespread vaccination of children using the nasal spray.
What else you can do inside qs leap ?
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
A. Any person who has received the injectable vaccine can safely receive the nasal-spray vaccines well.
B. The new vaccine uses the same mechanism to ward off influenza as injectable vaccines do.
C. The injectable vaccine is affordable for all adults.
D. Adults do not contract influenza primarily from children who have influenza.
E. The nasal spray vaccine is mot effective when administered to adults
