QUESTION TEXT: Both passages are concerned with answering…
DISCUSSION: Both passages are about whether we should treat others the way they treat others.
- Neither passage really considers harm as the main principle. The first passage mentions a harmless liar, but only to make a different point.
- Neither passage talks about the distinction between legal wrongs and moral wrongs.
- CORRECT. The first passage is about whether to lie to a liar. The second passage is about whether to treat a rational being the way they treat others.
