### Logical Reasoning

Journalist: To reconcile the need for profits sufficient to support new drug research with the moral imperative to provide medicine to those who must need them but cannot afford them, some pharmaceutical companies feel justified in selling a drug in rich nations at one price and in poor nations at a much lower price.’ But this practice is unjustified. A nation with a low average income may still have a substantial middle class better able to pay for new drugs than are many of the poorer citizens of an overall wealthier nation.

51. Which one of the following principles, if valid most helps to justify the journalist’s reasoning?

People who are ill deserve more consideration than do healthy people, regardless of their relative socioeconomic positions.

Wealthy institutions have an obligation to expend at least some of their resources to assist those incapable of assisting themselves

Whether one deserves special consideration depends on one’s needs rather than on characteristics of the society to which one belongs

The people in wealthy nations should not have better access to health care than do the people in poorer nations.

Unequal access to health care is more unfair than an unequal distribution of wealth.

52. Several critics have claimed that any contemporary poet who writes formal poetry - poetry is rhymed and metered is performing a politically conservative act. This is plainly false. Consider Molly peacock an Marilyn hacker, two contemporary poets whose poetry is almost exclusively formal and yet who are themselves politically progressive feminists.
The conclusion drawn above follows logically if which one of following is assumed?

No one which is feminist is also politically conservative.

No poet who writes unrhymed or unmetered poetry is politically conservative.

Anyone who sometimes writes poetry that is not politically conservative never writes poetry that is politically conservative.

No one who is politically progressive is capable of performing a politically conservative act.

Unequal access to health care is more unfair than an unequal distribution of wealth.

In heavily populated areas the introduction of water power would have been certain to cause social unrest by depriving large numbers of people of their ‘livelihood.

In the areas in which water power was not used, water flow in rivers and streams was substantial throughout the year but nevertheless exhibited some seasonal variation.

Water power was relatively vulnerable to sabotage, but any damage could be quickly and inexpensively repaired.

In most areas to which the use of water power was not extended, other more traditionalsources of energy continued to be used

The ancient Romans were adept at constructing and maintaining aqueducts that could carry quantities of water sufficient to supply large cities over considerable distance.
