## vague laws

Vague laws set vague limits on people’s freedom,
which makes it impossible for them to know for
certain whether their actions are legal. Thus, under
vague laws people cannot feel secure.
The conclusion follows logically if which one of the
following is assumed?
(A) People can feel secure only if they know for
certain whether their actions are legal.
(B) If people do not know for certain whether their
actions are legal, then they might not feel
secure.
(C) If people know for certain whether their actions
are legal, they can feel secure.
(D) People can feel secure if they are governed by
laws that are not vague.
(E) Only people who feel secure can know for
certain whether their actions are legal.

I'll take B. Directly picking up from the stimulus:
'makes it impossible for them to know for
certain whether their actions are legal. Thus, under
vague laws people cannot feel secure.'

BTW I feel the sentence is not written inside GMAT LAND.

Vague laws set vague limits on people’s freedom,
which makes it impossible for them

Here 'which' refers to people's freedom. It is not certainly the one that is making impossible.

Am I over thinking!!!

IMO A.

If A is assumed "People can feel secure only if they know for certain whether their actions are legal.", then we know for sure the "people cannot feel secure".

If we assume B, there is still an element of 'might', people might feel secure or they might not. But we need to conclude that they cannot feel secure.

What do you say Shooter?

I will go for D

P – vauge laws set vauge limits on freedom &#224; it is impossible for people to know whether actions are legal.

Conclusion &#224; under vauge law people are not secure

Assumption is :-- vauge laws make people unsecure

B is out ‘might’ is too extreme

A tricky but out knowing status of actions ain’t the only reason to feel secure

D out for same reason

C wins.
Experts in what level do you put this problem?

Is it 600-700 or 700-800

Wil go with B..

If X then Y
If X then Z
So the assumption is if Y then Z holds gud..

I will go with A

Queen,

Here is my reasoning for selection of B.

"makes it impossible for them to know for
certain whether their actions are legal. Thus, under
vague laws people cannot feel secure."

This is what passage states:
Makes it impossible (they dont know) ->cannot feel secure. (this is what B states)

A states ulta.

cannot feel secure -> they dont know.

B makes sense if the Q stem would have asked "What can we logically infer from the above stimulus?"
But the Q is "conclusion follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?"

If we assume option A which states that
X ONLY IF Y.
X: "People can feel secure " ONLY IF Y: "know for certain whether their actions are legal." If Y is the necessary and sufficient condition. If NOT Y --> NOT X.
Where am I wrong
