    (27) When mobile phones were introduced there were concerns about the microwaves produced

    and the effects that these could have on the brain, given that phones would be held close to the

    ear when being used. These concerns have been shown to be mistaken since mobile phones

    are used for sending text messages far more than for making phone calls. Sending a text

    message does not require the phone to be anywhere near to the brain so it cannot cause any

    problems.

    Which one of the following identifies the flaw in this argument?

    A It ignores research showing that microwaves from the phones cannot penetrate far

    enough to reach the brain.

    B It ignores evidence suggesting that text messaging is only popular in certain age

    groups.

    C It does not consider uses of mobile phones other than making phone calls and

    sending text messages.

    D It does not consider other technology such as wireless internet which could cause

    similar problems.

    E It ignores the possible effects of the phone calls that are made.

    ANSWER= E
