Analyzing Arguments

Directions to SolveRead the paragraph carefully and determine the main point the author is trying to make. What conclusion can be drawn from the argument? Each paragraph is followed by five statements.One statement supports the author's argument better than the others do.

Q1: If you're a fitness walker, there is no need for a commute to a health club. Your neighborhood can be your health club. You don't need a lot of fancy equipment to get a good workout either. All you need is a well-designed pair of athletic shoes.
This paragraph best supports the statement that

A fitness walking is a better form of exercise than weight lifting.

B a membership in a health club is a poor investment.

C walking outdoors provides a better workout than walking indoors.

D fitness walking is a convenient and valuable form of exercise.

E poorly designed athletic shoes can cause major foot injuries.

ANS:D - fitness walking is a convenient and valuable form of exercise.

Explanation: By stating that fitness walking does not require a commute to a health club, the author stresses the convenience of this form of exercise. The paragraph also states that fitness walking will result in a good workout. Choice a is incorrect because no comparison to weight lifting is made. Choice b may seem like a logical answer, but the paragraph only refers to people who are fitness walkers, so for others, a health club might be a good investment. Choice c is not in the passage. Although choice e seems logical, the paragraph does not indicate that the wrong shoes will produce major injuries.
