DISCUSSION: The author argues that wine seems to be good. In doing so, he’s correcting scientists’ mistake: they lump all alcohol together.
- Not quite. For example, the author doesn’t quite go so far as to say that you should drink wine if you have heart disease.
- Criticizing popular opinion? It’s only mentioned in lines 6-9, and the author agrees with the opinion: wine can be healthy.
- CORRECT. Scientists have made the mistake of thinking wine is only important because it has alcohol.
- The author likes all the evidence he presents: it shows wine may be healthy.
- Huh? I’m not sure where this comes from. The only hypothesis presented is the author’s own: wine may prevent heart disease. The author is arguing against the scientists, but they have no revolutionary hypothesis.
