Hi there,
The wording of the answer choices for question 66 is throwing me off. I don't understand what irrelevant vs relevant means with regards to the question. Like what is it comparing the relevance to? Further the correct answer says the objector doesn't say this which makes the authors argument relevant and its just not making sense to me. Any guidance would be very much appreciated!

Thanks,
Lauren

Hi Lauren,

For this question, the "relevance" is related to the response of the author. So, we can think of the question stem this way: there is an objection to allowing people to make their own decision because they could decide anything. The author defends this by saying that if we allow the "designated decision makers" to make the decisions instead, they could also decide anything. Is the author's defense relevant?

Now, for answering the question, similar to any 2-part answer choice, don't focus on the relevant vs. irrelevant, but on the statement. See which statement might be true first.

Hope this helps!
Meaghan
