gre argument 235题目：
The following appeared in a memorandum from the general manager of KNOW radio station.
"Several factors indicate that radio station KNOW should shift its programming from rock-and-roll music to a continuous news format. Consider, for example, the number of older people in our listening area has increased dramatically(1), while the total number of our listeners has recently declined(2). Also, music stores in our area report decreased sales of recorded music(3,4,5). Finally, continuous news stations in neighboring cities have been very successful(6), and a survey taken just before the recent election shows that local citizens are interested in becoming better informed about politics(7)."
(1)The arguer falsely assumes that older people do not prefer rock-and-roll but favor all-news programming.
(2)Several other factors may also contribute to the decline in the number of listeners.
(3)The sales of recorded music are not a good indication of whether people prefer rock-and-roll.
(4)We do not know what types of music recordings actually experienced sales decline in the music stores, thus cannot evaluate if the decline results from decreasing popularity of rock-and-roll.
(5)The manager fails to illustrate that people who buy music recordings are basically the same group of people who listen to music on the radio.
(6)The fact that news stations in neighboring cities have been successful does not indicate that KNOW could also be successful through shifting its programming to a continuous news format.
(7)The fact that citizens are interested in becoming better informed about politics before the election does not necessarily imply that they will also be interested in continuous news program all the time.
