After some days B gives A and C as Many tractors as they have.
After some days B gives A and C as many tractors as they have.

2. Although most of the fastest growing jobs in today’s economy will require a college degree, many of the new jobs being created from home health aide to desktop publisher require knowledge other than gained from earning a degree. For workers in those jobs, good basic skills in reading, communication, and mathematics play a important role in getting a job and developing a career.
From the information given above it can be validly concluded that, in today’s economy
1) Skills in reading, communication and mathematics play an important role in developing a career as a desktop publisher.
2) The majority of the new jobs being created require knowledge other than that gained from earning a college degree
3) A job as a home health aide will rely more on communication skills than on a basic skills in reading and mathematics
4) If a job is one of the fastest growing jobs, it will require a college degree.
3. According to the National Agricultural Aviation Society (NAAS), without the use of crop protection products to control insects, weeds, and diseases, crop yields per acre will drop by more than 50 percent. The first aerial application of insecticide occurred in 1921, and it was a huge success. By contrast, in today’s economy all aircraft that are classified as aerial applicators do more than just apply insecticide; today, they also spread sees and apply fertilizer.
From the information given above it CANNOT be validly concluded that
1) According to the NAAS, if crop yields per acre never drop by more than 50 parcent, then crop protection products have been used to control insects, weeds, and diseases.
2) in today’s economy any aircraft that cannot be used to apply fertilizer cannot be classified as an aerial applicator
3) in today’s economy, if an aerial applicator is used, then it will be able to spread seed and to apply fertilizer
4) According to NAAS, if crop yields per acre drop by more than 50 percent, then crop protection products have not been used to control insects, weeds, and diseases.
4. Lou observes that if flight 409 is cancelled, then the manager could not possibly arrive in time for the meeting. But the flight was not cancelled. Therefore, Lou concludes, the manager will certainly be on time. Evelyn replies that even if Lou’s premises true, his argument is fallacious. And therefore, she adds, the manages will not arrive on time after all.
Which of the following is the strongest thing that we can properly say about this discussion?
1) Evelyn is mistaken in thinking Lou’s argument to be fallacious, and so her own conclusion is unwarranted.
2) Evelyn is right about Lou’s argument, but nevertheless her own conclusion is unwarranted.
3) Since Evelyn is right about Lou’s argument, her own conclusion is well supported.
4) Since Evelyn is mistaken about Lou’s argument, her own conclusion must be false.
5. Cars are safer than planes. Fifty percent of plane accidents result in death, while only one percent of car accidents result in death.
Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the argument above?
1) Planers are inspected more often than cars.
2) The number of car accidents is several hundred thousand times higher than the number of plane accidents.
3) Pilots never fly under the influence of alcohol, while car drivers often do.
4) Plane accidents are usually the fault of air traffic controllers, not pilots.
