National Language

GMAT-KLEF4G

A recent study has concluded that the United States, which does not currently have an official national language, should create an official language that is different from all known languages. This, researchers say, ensures only U.S. citizens could live and do business in the United States.

Which of the following is the flaw in this reasoning?

A

The United States has a problem with illegal immigration.

B

The United States would lose major trade connections if a new language was instituted.

C

Many businesses would leave the United States if a new language were to be implemented.

D

Current United States citizens would probably revolt against the institution of a non-English language in the United States.

E

Living in an area requires a proficient use of the language of that area.
