A is directly stated in the passage" First, a chef must not copy another chef's recipe
. innovation exactly." This would insinuate that it is the most strongly supported....This question should have been phrased "which of the following could be strongly *inferred* from the passage?"
Should we treat these types of questions as strengthen questions? Also, when the question is worded so that it directs you to find support for a given answer choice in the passage, how are we to know if it is a must be true question(as is common in RC) or an inference question?
The argument made in passage B is that three social norms serve to protect the intellectual property rights of chefs in place of formal law. The question asks us to find the answer choice that best supports the argument.
Actually, never mind this makes sense now. If breaking the norms can be punished, that is support that norms do in fact act as replacements for formal law. However, the fact that colleagues must credit developer of significant recipes as authors of those recipes is already stated in the passage so it does not provide support......If the question was "which one of the answer choices is most strongly supported by the passage?," then answer choice A might be the correct answer.
