gre argument 3


Recommended Posts

The following appeared as a letter to the editor
from a Central Plaza store owner.
"Over the past two years, the number of shoppers
in Central Plaza has been steadily decreasing
while the popularity of skateboarding has increased
dramatically. Many Central Plaza store owners
believe that the decrease in their business
is due to the number of skateboard users in
the plaza. There has also been a dramatic increase
in the amount of litter and vandalism throughout
the plaza. Thus, we recommend that the city prohibit
skateboarding in Central Plaza. If skateboarding
is prohibited here, we predict that business
in Central Plaza will return to its previously
high levels."
Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered in order to decide whether the recommendation is likely to have the predicted result. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to evaluate the recommendation.
there is absolutely no relation between skateboarding
and decrease in customers .
          just think isn't skateboarding inside
plaza . isn't that mean skateboarders are also
customers whether they shop are not .ok if we
feel that customers are really only shoppers
then just place a cost on skateboarding per
hour a person or day a person daily ticket
pass or so. this will improve the customers 
at the same time plaza will get profit and also
skateboarders will be happy.
         according to the argument prohibition of
skateboarders causes increase in plaza's profit
but what they cannot realize is it is quite
opposite as if skateboarders are banned as the
shoppers are low already the whole plaza will
be empty or may be even banned as they are the
major customers .
          moreover it is not clear whether skateboarding
is the only aspect or not.whether any other
sports are conducted in that plaza . are the 
same persons coming always.whether the vandalism
is actually caused especially by  skate boards
arenot there any skate parks near by.is the park
occupied by some other player or even other
sports players . 
           i asked the above questions as it is
possible that the skateboarders may be there
but not exactly the cause of vandalism as there
may be other sports people who were causing vandalism
but placing it on the skateboarders which also
means even if we ban skateboarding vandalism
will continue but skateboarder will be sad
if the same people coming always there might
be a chance that they doing it on purpose
causing vandalism and spoiling name of all
skateboarders which is also a fact we should
count in.
            considering above factors we conclude
the decision in the argument.
