I sort of have a reoccurring issue with all LR questions that this example about the 19th century floorboards helps articulate. I think I sort of understand what happens to me but I'm wondering if maybe there's some sort of general rule that could help me when I get confused.
In this example, the correct answer (B) requires a logical next step in reasoning, ie the floorboards being effectively the same piece means that the voice to use narrow floorboards is unnecessary, but indicates a choice to spend more money on the narrow vs the wider.
In answer choice (A), why couldn't I have taken it one step further in saying that perhaps the reason why the houses with narrow floorboards lasted longer was because they were of better quality? If they were of better quality, wouldn't it mean that perhaps they cost more, and that would strengthen the argument that better quality costs more and only the wealthy could afford better quality?
I'm not sure if this is making sense but my point is that I get confused as to when it is ok to take an answer choice one step further vs when it is not, and this could mean the difference between getting an answer right vs wrong.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
