Page 172, Question 12.

Hi Dave,

I am stuck with question 12 on page 172. I have tried to tackle this question conditionally and all I got was a long list of conditionals that I could not work with.

Thanks in advance!

Remember, 4 of these answer choices are going to tell us things we just don't know. The correct one will tell us something we do know is false.

Last phrase of the passage: "...to pursue goals that offer no happiness..."

So (B) cannot be true; the passage makes it explicit that some desired goals do not result in happiness.

Make sense?

Hey Michael, in my opinion you shouldn't be bothering with trying to diagram conditionals on this question it would waste too much time. Its quite a wordy stimulus but the only sentence that really matters is the one about compulsions not offering happiness even when attained. So you know that B cannot be true.
