Reading Comprehension: Inference Questions

What may be inferred from the fact that Napoleon's tactics are still studied today, despite modern technological advances?

Great!

[[snippet]]

Since we know that Napoleon's tactics are still relevant today even though modern armies have vastly improved weaponry, we may infer that weaponry is not the only factor in military success.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

This answer choice goes too far. Although we know that Napoleon's tactics are studied and used by modern military thinkers, the passage gives no indication that they form the basis to all modern military thought.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

Scholars study historical events for many reasons, but all this tells us is that Napoleon's tactics are still relevant today, not that modern strategic thinking is the same as it was in Napoleon's time.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

We have no information from which to make this statement. All we know is that scholars still study Napoleon's tactics. We do not know about their other interests.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage only tells us that Napoleon's weaponry were less sophisticated than modern weaponry. This does not mean that they were inferior at the time.

Napoleon's tactics form the basis of modern military thinking.
Superior weapon technology alone does not guarantee military success.
Modern military strategic thinking has not advanced since the days of Napoleon.
Modern technological advances do not interest scholars of military strategy.
Napoleon's superior tactics were necessary to compensate for his inferior weaponry.
