7. V1 by pooh1 O city去年不应该建立shopping mall in downtown因为一堆企业因为其倒闭了，然后停车特拥挤，所以E应该deny开shopping mall的计划
V2 by yaodesa OG上一道cr原题-大意Oak city 修了一个mall~然后~city的local business 关了~停车难~犯罪率看涨~所以建议另一个city deny the construction of similar mall
V3 by manlin机经里面的两个城市，一个城市oak的shopping mall 导致其他businesses破产，parking出现问题，还导致了公园附近的crime上升。所以另一个城市ELM不要建设shopping mall
V4 by zhErick还蛮幸运的 AA考到了：the construction of shop mall
V5 by 阿达0314AA： 讲的是一个O city，自从开了一个shopping mall 以后，各种问题就接踵而至，什么周围的其他商业倒闭啊，parking shortage 啊， 犯罪率飙升啊。 所以另一个打算开shopping mall 的E city 可得注意了，Oak是个很好的例子啊。
原题：No. 52 The following editorial appeared in the Elm City paper.
“The construction last year of a shopping mall in downtown Oak City was a mistake. Since the mall has opened, a number of local businesses have closed, and the downtown area suffers from an acute parking shortage, and arrests for crime and vagrancy have increased in the nearby Oak City Park. Elm City should pay attention to the example of the Oak City mall and deny the application to build a shopping mall in Elm City.”
# To begin with, the author fails to establish the causal relationship between the shopping mall's opening and the closing of local businesses.
# Moreover, the author's conclusion is also based on the assumption that the shopping mall has caused the increase in crime and vagrancy.
# Finally, even if the shopping mall did cause the closing of local business and the increasing crime and vagrancy in Oak City, the author's prediction that Elm City will suffer from the same fate as Oak City is still open to doubt.
(此文根据老题写作)In this editorial the author rebukes Oak City for allowing the construction of a new downtown shopping mall. Citing a number of problems that have occurred since the building of the mail, the author concludes that the residents of Oak City have not benefited from the mail and that Oak City exercised poor judgment in allowing the mail to be built. Among the problems cited by the author are the closure of local businesses, lack of parking in the downtown area, and increased trash and litter in a city park near the mall. Moreover, the author argues that profits derived from sales are not benefiting Oak City because the owner of the mall lives in another city. The author’s argument is problematic in several respects.
In the first place, the author assumes that addition of the new mall is the cause of the various problems cited. The only evidence offered to support this claim is that the construction of the mall occurred before these problems manifested themselves. However, this evidence is insufficient to establish the claim in question. A chronological relationship is only one of the indicators of a causal relationship between two events.
In the second place, the author has focused only on negative effects the mall has had on the city. A more detailed analysis of the situation might reveal that the positive benefits for the city far outweigh the problems on which the author focuses. For example, new jobs might have been created for the residents of Oak City, and tax revenues might have been increased for the city. Lacking a more comprehensive analysis of the impact of the mail on Oak City, it is presumptuous on the part of the author to conclude that Oak City’s decision to allow the mall to be built was incorrect.
In conclusion, the author’s argument is unconvincing. To strengthen the argument the author would have to demonstrate that the construction of the mall caused the various problems mentioned. The author would also have to show that the negative effects of the project outweighed the positive effects.
