DISCUSSION: It’s very important to know what this means. The second version is the proposal in paragraph three. So the criticism is in paragraph four: the critics argued that neutrality was a Western value. So we have to criticize that somehow.
- CORRECT. This is devastating. If this were true, then we could never understand any foreign culture, because we couldn’t understand their values.
Lines 58-61 recommend adopting the values of other cultures. If this answer choice were true, then that would be impossible.
- That’s nice. But it doesn’t change the fact that we should adopt those cultures’ values when we study them, according to the critics from the fourth paragraph.
- So? Just because some cultures don’t listen to the critics’ advice doesn’t mean the critics are wrong.
- This talks about understanding one’s own culture. The critics were talking about understanding foreign cultures.
- This sounds like exactly what the critics are arguing for. It isn’t though: no one from the passage talks about appreciating a culture. So this doesn’t work as a critique of the critics.
