    Smoke-detecting fire alarms

    Sponsored Ad:
    Bill: Smoke-detecting fire alarms can save lives. I believe that every apartment in this city should be required by law to be equipped with a smoke detector.

    Joe: I disagree with your proposal. Smoke detectors are just as important for safety in private houses as they are in apartment.

    From this exchange, it can be inferred that Joe has interpreted Billís statement to mean that

    (A) the city should be responsible for providing smoke detectors for apartments
    (B) residences outside the city should not be equipped with smoke detectors
    (C) only apartments should be equipped with smoke detectors
    (D) the risk of fire is not as great in private houses as it is in apartments
    (E) the rate of death by fire is unusually high in the city in question

    Imo C
    Failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.

    C is the answers. It stands out.

    Joe misunderstands the interpretation of what apartment means here.

    C it is
    "Abba-I have a dream, a song to sing
    To help me cope with anything
    If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
    You can take the future even if you fail!"

    Definitely C. I wished I could get all verbal questions like this in the real GMAT.

    Out of "C" and "D" I will go with "C"

    (C) only apartments should be equipped with smoke detectors
    (D) the risk of fire is not as great in private houses as it is in apartments

    is question stem asking what joe thinks or what bill mean?
