METHOD OF ARGUMENT

2-5% of GMAT CR Questions
 A extremely rare CR question type

Objective :
Method of Argument questions ask you to find the answer that best describes how the argument
was constructed.
Example:
Mel​vin: Anyone who believes that autonomous, computer controlled cars, are likely to catch on with the public at large overlooks the obvious danger associated with computer error, or the absence of human instinct to evade danger in high risk situations.

Amanda: Sure there are risks associated with computer error, but can we be sure that they exceed the risk associated with human error? Until we know for sure, it just may turn out that autonomous cars could be more convenient, and significantly safer than human driven cars.

Amanda responds to Melvin by

(A) attacking Melvin personally, rather than Melvin’s argument

(B)pointing out that Melvin’s argument overlooks an important issue needed to make a valid comparison

(C) agreeing with Melvin’s overall conclusion, and providing additional evidence to support her agreement

(D) refuting Melvin’s argument by pointing out a consideration that runs directly counter to Melvin’s claim

(E) disagreeing with Melvin’s argument in part, but ultimately agreeing with his claim
