Uncontaminated drinking water can presently be accessed without a home computer.-identify the conclusion and the premise(s):premise: a comfortable majority of americans said in a recent poll that they now considered a home computer to be a need.conclusion: the american public has come to define need beyond the traditional notion of that which is absolutely necessary for survival.identify question type and give some tips:you must find the assumption that eliminates the alternate path to the same end: what if a home computer actually is absolutely necessary for survival? in that case the definition of need would not have changed. for the conclusion to be true, it must be that need is a pliable concept and that there is nothing absolutely necessary for survival that cannot be had without a home computer. remember: there may be more than one possible correct factor at play here, but only one will appear as an answer choice.scan each answer choice by eliminating progressively each wrong answer to finish with the best answer:(a) is an inference that logically follows if the conclusion is true, but it does not help us to reach that conclusion. (c) and (e) are outside the scope of the argument; we are not concerned with whether americans have access to their needs. (d) seems tempting, but it attempts to fix the definition of the word need when the argument relies upon a pliable definition of the word. (b) makes sense, because uncontaminated drinking water is essential for survival and if you needed a home computer to access it, there is no way a home computer would not be essential.
