The following appeared as part of an annual report sent to stockholders by Olympic Foods, a processor of frozen foods.

"Over time, the costs of processing go down because as organizations learn how to do things better, they become more efficient. In color film processing, for example, the cost of a 3-by-5-inch print fell from 50 cents for five-day service in 1970 to 20 cents for one-day service in 1984. The same principle applies to the processing of food. And since Olympic Foods will soon celebrate its twenty-fifth birthday, we can expect that our long experience will enable us to minimize costs and thus maximize profits."

Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In your discussion be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the use of evidence in the argument. For example, you may need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking and what alternative explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion. You can also discuss what sort of evidence would strengthen or refute the argument. What changes in the argument would make it more logically sound. And what, if anything would help you better evaluate its conclusion.

    第一段 : 年度報告的一部分由於奧林匹克運動會的Foods的股東,冷凍食品的處理器發信了的時候,以下呈現了。

    第二段 : 時間隨著辰,處理的成本,因為學習組織很好東西的方法的時候,變得更效率性,下降。 顏色的膠捲沖洗處理,譬如,3×5英寸的印刷的費用1984年為了1日的服務的1970?為了在20分的5天的服務的從50分下跌了。 同樣的原則被食物的處理適用。 並且,因為奧林匹克運動會的Foods第25次的生日馬上祝賀做,我們,能我們的多年的經驗,我們把成本做為最小,預想那個結果,使極大化做利潤成為可能。

    第三段 : 請議論怎麼發現這個議論。 請議論,必定分析推理的線和在議論的證據的使用。 譬如,你,需要能怎樣的可疑的假定成為,並且考慮的基礎,說不定怎樣的代替的說明或者反例子使結論衰弱考慮。 同時,你,能怎樣的證據強化,或議論議論使之反駁。 由於在議論變化的東西,那個,更合乎邏輯地響吧。 並且,如果事,什麼,容易基於幫助,請評價結論。
