DISCUSSION: Inference questions test whether you can check your answer against the passage. 100% of the time you should be able to support the correct answer with a line from the passage.
- Not so. States might have correct information about the risks. But their perception of what risks they should take will probably be off base.
- CORRECT. This is implied; evidence about normal people is used to describe how countries act. Countries are run by people, and they likely see risk the same way as ordinary people.
- Unfortunately, we don’t know if this is true. Just because we can describe how countries act doesn’t mean we know how to stop conflicts.
- The author would agree with the first part. But the second part isn’t supported. Rational decision making generally shouldn’t lead to severe consequences (on average at least).
- This isn’t true at all. The new research only described people who faced a certain loss. In all other cases, people want the benefits to greatly exceed risks. Just matching risks isn’t enough.
