QUESTION TYPE: Must be True
- Some critics think that the project should only be funded publicly if it can be shown how it would benefit the public.
- If the critics were correct then the project would not have tremendous public support.
- Yet even the critics acknowledge that the project does have tremendous public support.
ANALYSIS: We can conclude that the critics are wrong to say that the project should only receive public funding if a benefit can be demonstrated.
We cannot conclude that the project should receive public funding. We can just say that the critics’ criterion was wrong.
- Not quite. Benefits might still be relevant. It’s just that the critics were wrong to say that a clearly identifiable benefit was necessary.
- No. There might be some other reason why the funding is not justified.
- Hard to say. Public support only indicates that the critics’ criterion is wrong.
- Who knows? Maybe the public has no idea what the project does and they just think it sounds neat.
- CORRECT. The fact that the public supports the project shows that the critics are wrong that a benefit must be indicated.
