Top college graduates are having more difficultydemonstrating their superiority to prospective employers than did the topstudents of twenty years ago when an honors degree was distinction enough.Today’s employers are less impressed with the honors degree. Twenty years agono more than 10 percent of a given class graduated with honors. Today, however,because of grade inflation, the honors degree goes to more than 50 percent of agraduating class. Therefore, to restore confidence in the degrees they award,colleges must take steps to control grade inflation.
Which one of the following is an assumption that, if true,would support the conclusion in the passage?
(A) Today’s studentsare not higher achievers than the students of twenty years ago.
(B) Awarding too manyhonors degrees causes colleges to inflate grades.
(C) Today’s employersrely on honors ranking in making their hiring decisions.
(D) It is not easyfor students with low grades to obtain jobs.
(E) Colleges mustmake employers aware of the criteria used to determine who receives an honordegree.
思路: 如果现在的优秀学生数量比20年前多，那么授予更多的honor degree就很正常了，也许除了荣誉学位，学生应该用别的方面来证明自己。所以只有当现在的学生素质不值得被授予象20年前那样的荣誉学位的时候，整个论证才有道理。
