QUESTION TEXT: To be horrific, a monster must be…
QUESTION TYPE: Must be True
- If a monster is horrific then it is threatening.
- If a monster is physically dangerous then it is threatening.
- Even a non-dangerous (benign) monster that inspires revulsion is horrific (and therefore threatening)
ANALYSIS: We can combine terms to get the following:
Revulsion ➞ horrific ➞ threatening
Not threatening ➞ not horrific, nor physically dangerous, nor something that inspires revulsion.
Note: Most of the second sentence is fluff. On similar questions, learn to cut out the stuff at the start and only focus on the sufficient-necessary relationships (or terms like some, most, etc.)
- This gets it backwards. Horrific is always threatening but threatening doesn’t have to be horrific.
- This is an incorrect negation. There are other ways to be horrific apart from inspiring revulsion.
- The only way we could conclude that a monster doesn’t inspire horror is if the monster wasn’t threatening. Otherwise we simply don’t know what might cause a monster to be horrific.
- As with C, the only way we can be sure that a monster isn’t revolting is if it is also not horrific. We know nothing about a monster that is psychologically threatening.
- CORRECT. Any monster that inspires revulsion is also horrific. And any horrific monster is threatening.
