gre argument 119题目：
The following is a letter to the editor of the Waymarsh Times.
"Traffic problems here in Waymarsh are obviously reaching record levels. While just three months ago it would take me 15 minutes to get to work, it now takes closer to 25(1,2). Waymarsh should follow the example of our neighboring city Gearsville. Last year, Gearsville implemented a policy that rewards people who share rides to work with coupons for free gas(7). Pollution levels in Gearsville have dropped since the policy was implemented(3), and several friends(4) who live in Gearsville tell me that their trip to work is quicker than it used to be. With the terrible traffic and high pollution(6) in Waymarsh, we must implement a policy similar to Gearsville's(5)."
(1)The author fails to prove that the situation faced by the author is not an unusual case.
(2)The author unfairly assumes that the current situation will continue in the future.
(3)The author fails to establish a causal relationship between implementing the policy and drop of pollution levels in Gearsville.
(4)The author’s friends may not be representative of all Gearsville residents.
(5)Implementing the policy similar to Gearsville’s might not be equally effective in Waymarsh.
(6)We do not know the actual level of pollution in Waymarsh and the causes for the pollution, thus implementing the policy may not necessarily improve Waymarsh’s traffic and environment.
(7)The proposed reward policy may result in some negative effects.
