User: Reporter: A new campaign finance reform bill being considered by Congress would limit the amount of campaign contributions that political candidates can receive. However, a survey of candidates running for mayor, governor, and senate seats shows that not one of them favors the bill. Clearly, there is no desire among politicians to limit campaign contributions. Which one of the following points out the flaw in the reporter’s argument above? (Points : 1) The reporter doesn’t indicate the amount that the new bill would limit campaign contributions. The evidence provided by the reporter suggests that most politicians are in favor of the new bill. The reporter wrongly assumes that no politician has ever supported a bill intended to limit campaign contributions The views of candidates currently running for office do not necessarily represent the views of all politicians.

Weegy: D.) The views of candidates currently running for office do not necessarily represent the views of all politicians.

User: Catherine goes to her local movie theater only to see romantic comedies. Since Catherine did not go to the movies yesterday, there is not a romantic comedy playing at her local theater.

User: The two double A batteries in my CD player are dead, so the CD player doesn’t work. My television remote control, which also uses two double A batteries, works fine. So if I move the two batteries from my television remote control to my CD player, the CD player will definitely work. Aron’s argument is most strengthened if which one of the following is true? (Points : 1) Aron inserted the current batteries in his television remote control two months before he inserted the current batteries in his CD player. The amount of energy required to power the CD player is not greater than the amount of energy needed to power the television remote control. Aron has used his television remote control more times than he has used his CD player since inserting the current batteries into each device. Double A batteries provide less energy than either C batteries or D batteries

Weegy: The amount of energy required to power the CD player is not greater than the amount of energy needed to power the television remote control.

User: Some politicians claim to support the environment in speeches they make around the country. However, to get to those speeches they ride in gas guzzling, pollution creating private planes. They therefore clearly don’t believe a word of what they say and are actually making the environmental problem worse. Which one of the following, if true, would best weaken the argument above? (Points : 1) Some of the politicians try to hide the fact that they travel by private plane to their speeches around the country. Most people who hear the politicians’ speeches on the environment are unconvinced by their arguments. A majority of voters surveyed agree that politicians sometimes make society’s problems worse. Improvements to the environment brought about through the politicians’ public support of environmental regulations more than offset the damage done to the environment by the politicians’ private planes.

Weegy: Answer is D) Improvements to the environment brought about through the politicians? public support of environmental regulations more than offset the damage done to the environment by the politicians? private planes.
