All of the Following Statements Are Strengthening Babita’S Argument. Which One is the Exception? - Logical Reasoning

Question

MCQ

Direction: Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

Anita: I sold my house through a real estate agent last year and was happy with the price that I received. My house was sold quickly, and I did not have to suffer any advertising hassles. I would advise against selling your house through Internet websites, newspapers or magazine listings.

Babita: It is in the interest of Internet websites, newspapers and magazines to get me the best price for my property because they are a relatively new medium wanting to establish themselves. Besides, their fee is dependent on the selling price. Therefore, while selling my house I will certainly use Internet websites, newspapers or magazine listings rather than trying to sell the house through a real estate agent.

All of the following statements are strengthening Babita’s argument. Which one is the EXCEPTION?

Options

  • Both mediums are different, so it is unfair to compare them.

  • Houses often obtain a lower price when sold through a real estate agent.

  • Some customers pay these Internet websites, newspapers and magazines to find them a less-expensive house.

  • The Internet website, newspaper and magazine services include many add-on benefits in terms of legal advice, market report and advice that a real estate agent usually hides.

Solution

Some customers pay these Internet websites, newspapers and magazines to find them a less-expensive house.

Explanation:

The main point of contention between Anita’s and Babita’s arguments is the price obtained for properties sold through the two mediums—real estate agents and online mediums. While Anita believes that houses sold through real estate agents fetch a good price, Babita believes that sales made through Internet websites, newspapers and magazines get the best price. The reason she gives for the same is that these mediums are relatively new, and they want to establish themselves. Besides, their fee is also dependent on the selling price. All the arguments given strengthen Babita’s claim except some customers pay these Internet websites, newspapers and magazines to find them a less-expensive house. If there are people who pay these websites to find them a less expensive house, then it is plausible that these websites will actually try to sell the houses at a lower price, as it would result in greater benefit for them.
