Q9. Prompted by a proposal to convert a shipyard into a complex of condominiums with a full-service marina and boat repair centre and by concern about the proposal from local residents, baymen, and environmentalists, the town is considering a one-year building moratorium for the waterfront area.

Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken opposition to the complex?

(b) There is large demand for boat repair services.

(c) A growing population results in the closure of shellfish.

(d) There are already 1200 moorings on the waterfront.

(e) The shipyard may be sold for another commercial use.

S9. Ans.(e)

Sol. If the shipyard is not covered into the proposed complex, it might be sold for another use, which could be more detrimental to the opposition’s interests than the current plan.

Q10. Before the arrival of Joe, a new partner, sales output in Bill’s company, Midas in Revere Ltd., had been rising by 10% per year on average. Innovations by Joe included computerization of technical processes and reductions in the work force, but annual sales output has only risen by 5% per year. It appears that Joe’s innovations have caused the reduction in the annual growth rate. 

Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the conclusions above? 

(a) The investment in new machinery entails a provision for depreciation of the cost of the fixed assets, which causes a reduction in profit.

(b) Midas in Reverse Ltd. Does not base increase in the selling price of its products with costs.

(c) Joe’s innovations were intended as long-term investment and not made for short-term profit growth.

(d) General demand for the product manufactured by the company has declined.

(e) Workers laid off by Midas in Reverse Ltd. have been hired by a competitor who is taking an increasing share of the market.

S10. Ans.(d)
