For this quesiton, what should immediately indicate to us that global warming was conventional wisdom? In the next sentence it described it as "widely accepted predictions"
If we see language like that on other questions, should be interpret "widely accepted" as conventional or a similar descriptor?
Thanks! Since the mind gravitates towards equating "universal" with "all", yet "widely accepted" doesn't automatically make you think of "all".
Is there ever an instance when "widely accepted" should ever be interpreted as not "Universal" OTHER than when it would specifically states "not all"?
so: widely accepted = treat that as meaning "Universal/ALL/ Everyone agrees that is the case" whenever it is an aswer choice as an option UNLESS the passage itself makes a direct reference to "widely accepted" as meaning less than all / "but some do not" kind of thing.
Well, there's a meaningful difference between "universal/all/everyone" on the one hand, and "widely accepted/conventional wisdom/generally held" on the other.
The former group is conditional, while the latter is not. The first group says "this is true of each and every person," while the second group says only "this is true for most people."
