)]}> Many are concerned that playing violent games may lead to violent behavior. However, statistics show that violent behavior in children has declined significantly at the same time that video game sales have skyrocketed. It is therefore clear that there is no relationship between video games and violence.
The reasoning above is flawed because the author of the passage (Points : 1)
doesn’t distinguish between different levels of violent behavior
assumes that all nonviolent children do not play video games
faults video games for a situation that could have other causes
uses evidence about children to dismiss a concern concerning the whole population
