gre argument 233题目：
The following appeared in a memo from the vice president of a company that builds shopping malls throughout the country.
"The surface of a section of Route 101(1), paved two years ago by McAdam Road Builders, is now badly cracked and marred by dangerous potholes. In another part of the state, a section of Route 66(1), paved by Appian Roadways more than four years ago, is still in good condition(2). Appian Roadways has recently purchased state-of-the-art paving machinery, and it has hired a new quality-control manager(3,4,5). Because of its superior work and commitment to quality, we should contract with Appian Roadways rather than McAdam Road Builders(9) to construct the access roads(6,8) for all(7) our new shopping malls."
(1)Only one of all roads built by each company is compared, and only one section of each road is compared, thus we cannot evaluate the overall quality of construction of the two companies.
(2)Many other factors that would influence the condition of a road are ignored by the president.
(3)The arguer does not provide any information about the machinery used and the status of quality-control personnel at McAdam.
(4)No information about the performance of the new quality-control manager at Appian is provided.
(5)Many factors besides equipment and on-site management would also affect the quality of a pavement job.
(6)Granted that the quality of routes paved by Appian is superior, we cannot guarantee Appian could also do an excellent job in constructing the access roads for shopping malls.
(7)The president hastily assumes that Appian is capable of constructing the access roads of all new shopping malls.
(8)The president fails to consider if Appian are willing to contract with the company to construct access roads.
(9)Other competent companies might be available for the president to choose from.
