gre argument 234题目：
The following appeared in a newspaper feature story.
"There is now evidence that the relaxed manner of living in small towns promotes better health and greater longevity than does the hectic pace of life in big cities. Businesses in the small town of Leeville(5) report fewer days of sick leave(1) taken by individual workers than do businesses in the nearby large city of Mason City(5). Furthermore, Leeville has only one physician(2) for its one thousand residents(3), but in Mason City the proportion of physicians to residents is five times as high. And the average age of Leeville residents is significantly higher(4) than that of Mason City residents. These findings suggest that people seeking longer and healthier lives should consider moving to small communities(6,7)."
(1)The number of days of sick leave taken by individuals does not necessarily indicate their health status.
(2)The proportion of physicians to residents is not a good indication of the health level of citizens.
(3)The fact that Leeville has lower proportion of physicians to residents may just suggest that residents here may have difficulty in finding adequate health care.
(4)The author ignores many other differences that would contribute to the higher average age of Leeville residents.
(5)Leeville and Mason City are not necessarily representative of all small towns and big cities.
(6)Granted that living in small towns does promote better health and greater longevity, we cannot ensure that living at small communities would have the same advantages.
(7)The author fails to consider the disadvantages and inconveniences of living in small towns.
