Test 58 Section 4 Question 24

      On Test 58, Section 4, Question 24: I am having a hard time understanding why the answer is (B). From what I understand, the stimulus does not confirm that *ALL* people who anger the majority do so because they are “dissatisfied with habitual assent”. Later the stimulus presents a chain of reasoning from “dissatisfied with habitual dissent” to “demonstrating the falsehood of popular viewpoints”.

      But the correct answer connects “angering the majority” to “demonstrating the falsehood,” and I can’t make that logically follow. Am I reading too deep into the question? Should I assume that the first group is the only group that could possibly anger the majority? Am I missing a keyword that would make that clear?

      Stepped away for five minutes, when I came back I noticed that I don’t think I ever read the actual question. I was answering it as though the question was “which of these follows logically,” but the actual question is “It follows logically IF which is assumed”.

      So the part where it didn’t follow in my mind was actually the key to the answer, which makes perfect sense now.
