# Critical Reasoning: Assumption Questions

Jane is tall and slender. Therefore, Jane will become a world class model.

All of the following are assumptions on which the argument relies EXCEPT:

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]This answer choice **is** an **assumption** underlying the argument because if Jane does not want to become a model, her being tall and thin will not in itself make her one.

Remember that what you were asked to find here is not an **assumption** but the one answer choice which is NOT an underlying **assumption** in this argument. This may be confusing, which is what makes this question a hard one.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]This answer choice **is** an **assumption** underlying the argument because if Jane is too old to become a model, her being tall and thin will not make her one.

Remember that what you were asked to find here is not an **assumption **but the one answer choice which is NOT an underlying **assumption** in this argument. This is
confusing, which is what makes this question a hard one.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]This answer choice **is** an **assumption** underlying the argument because if Jane
does not have the face appropriate for becoming a model, her being tall and thin will not in
itself make her one.

Remember that what you were asked to find here is not an **assumption** but the one answer choice which is NOT an **assumption**. This is
confusing, which is what makes this question a hard one.

Very Good!

[[snippet]]Since the author's **conclusion** is a prediction about Jane's future as a professional model, that author does not have to assume that Jane is completely new to modeling - the argument stands whether or not she has had earlier modeling. Therefore, this answer choice is not an **assumption** that the author needed to make in order to reach the conclusion.

This answer choice **is** an **assumption** on which the argument relies because if Jane is not photogenic, it severely limits modeling as a career option for her.

Remember that what you were asked to find here is not an **assumption** but
the one answer choice which is NOT an underlying **assumption** in the argument. This is confusing,
which is what makes this question a hard one.
