Day 78 Recently, we signed a contract with the Fly-Away Pest Control Company to provide pestcontrol services at our fast-food warehouse in Palm City

The following appeared in a memo from the vice president of a food distribution company with food storage warehouses in several cities.

“Recently, we signed a contract with the Fly-Away Pest Control Company to provide pest control services at our fast-food warehouse in Palm City, but last month we discovered that over $20,000 worth of food there had been destroyed by pest damage. Meanwhile, the Buzzoff Pest Control Company, which we have used for many years, continued to service our warehouse in Wintervale, and last month only $10,000 worth of the food stored there had been destroyed by pest damage. Even though the price charged by Fly-Away is considerably lower, our best means of saving money is to return to Buzzoff for all our pest control services.”

Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument.

五问:

(1)“our best means of saving money is to return to Buzzoff for all our pest control services”是结论,其余部分是事实,值得反驳吗?

(2)本题属于典型的类比式题目:我们应该考虑类比的双方所具备的条件是否相同,你能试着罗列几个不同的因素吗?例如, Fly-Away与Buzzoff两家公司所处的环境是相同的吗?它们是否在同一个城市呢?不同城市之间是否可能在诸多方面都不相同?在不知道两地的货物总量也就是损失的比例的情况下,能说 Fly-Away的 pest damage程度更严重吗?让 Buzzoff到 Fly-Away所在的城市去工作,是否可能干得比 Fly-Away更加糟糕?

(3)原文将对比的时间限定在“ last month”,是合适的吗?过去一个月是如此,以后的所有时间之内就都会如此吗?请大家回顾基础理论中关于时间轴论证的错误。

(4)即便 Buzzoff的服务真的更为优秀(事实可能并非如此),为了省钱,我们真的应该选择 Buzzoff吗?选择 Buzzoff所增加的成本是否可能比因虫害损失的成本还要高?原文是否提供了足够的信息来证明这一点?

(5)原文最后一句话说要把 all our pest control services都交给 Buzzoff,这样的举措是合理的吗?原文中是否仅仅比对了两个地点?这两个地点可以代表所有的样本吗? Fly-Away在其他地区提供的 pest control services是否有可能比 Buzzoff更好?
