An electric-power company gained greater profits and provided electricity to consumers at lower rates per unit of electricity by building large-capacity, more efficient plants and by stimulating greater use of electricity within its area. To continue these financial trends, the company planned to replace an old plant by a plant with triple the capacity of its largest plant.

The question is based on the statements given before the question. Read the statements carefully and answer the questions. Which of the following, if true, would most likely be part of the evidence used to refute the conclusion above?

The pay and status of female accountants, lawyers and physicians today are governed by significantly different economic and sociological forces than were the pay and status of female teachers, bank tellers and secretaries in the past.
The question is based on the statements given before the question. Read the statements carefully and answer the questions. In the past, teachers, bank tellers, and secretaries were predominantly men; these occupations slipped in pay and status when they became largely occupied by women.

An attempt to refute a generalization by means of an exceptional case
An analogy between the past and the future
An appeal to popular beliefs and values.
