gre argument 120题目：
The following appeared in a health newsletter.
"A ten-year nationwide study of the effectiveness of wearing a helmet while bicycling indicates that ten years ago, approximately 35 percent of all bicyclists reported wearing helmets, whereas today that number is nearly 80 percent. Another study, however, suggests that during the same ten-year period, the number of accidents(1) caused by bicycling(3) has increased 200 percent(2). These results demonstrate that bicyclists feel safer because they are wearing helmets(4) and they take more risks as a result(5). Thus, to reduce the number of serious injuries from bicycle accidents(7), the government should concentrate more on educating people about bicycle safety(6) and less on encouraging or requiring bicyclists to wear helmets(8)."
(1)For lack of data concerning the accident rates and total number of bicyclists, the assumption that wearing helmets actually increased bicyclists’ risks is open to doubt.
(2)Other factors may also result in the increase in the number of accidents.
(3)The author fails to indicate that how many bicyclists involved in accidents are wearing helmets.
(4)The author unfairly assumes that wearing helmets will necessarily create false senses of safety in bicyclists.
(5)The assumption that bicyclists will take more risk when they feel safe is unfounded.
(6)The author falsely assumes that educating people about bicycle safety will be effective in reducing the number of serious injuries.
(7)The author fails to consider accidents caused by other vehicles and the severity of injuries, thus the proposed education may not be sufficient for ensuring safety of bicyclists.
(8)Requiring bicyclists to wear helmets would still be necessary to ensure bicyclists' safety.
