53. The supernova event of 1987 is interesting in that there is still no


evidence of the neutron star that current theory says should have
remained after a supernova of that size. This is in spite of the fact that
many of the most sensitive instruments ever developed have searched
for the tell-tale pulse of radiation that neutron stars emit. Thus, current
theory is wrong in claiming that supernovas of a certain size always
produce neutron stars.
Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?
(A) Most supernova remnants that astronomers have detected have a
neutron star nearby.
(B) Sensitive astronomical instruments have detected neutron stars much
farther away than the location of the 1987 supernova.
(C) The supernova of 1987 was the first that scientists were able to
observe in progress.
(D) Several important features of the 1987 supernova are correctly
predicted by the current theory.
(E) Some neutron stars are known to have come into existence by a
cause other than supernova explosion

promote political freedom. There are historical examples of democracies

The reasoning in the political scientists argument is flawed because
it...
(A) confuses the conditions necessary for political freedom with the
conditions sufficient to bring it about
(B) fails to consider that a substantial increase in the level of political
freedom might cause a society to become more democratic
(C) appeals to historical examples that are irrelevant to the causal claim
being made
(D) overlooks the possibility that democracy promotes political freedom
without being necessary or sufficient by itself to produce it
(E) bases its historical case on a personal point of view
