Argument Pool of Topics
According to ETS (Education Testing Services), the “Analyze an Argument” task assesses your ability to understand, analyze and evaluate arguments according to specific instructions and to convey your evaluation clearly in writing. Each topic consists of a brief passage in which the author makes a case for some course of action or interpretation of events by presenting claims backed by reasons and evidence.
Your task is to discuss the logical soundness of the author’s case by critically examining the line of reasoning and the use of evidence. This task requires you to read the argument and instructions carefully. You might want to read the argument more than once and make brief notes about points you want to develop more fully in your response.
