It might be axiomatic that the level of physical fitness in
Corpora is decreased in these time. To
support this claim, the author points out that the reason for the weakness is
because of not the usage of computer but
the decrease of economy. However, this
argument is not cogent in several respects.
First. The author assumes that
the comparison of survey based on the fact that the survey is comparable
equally. Nonetheless, the author fails to substantiate this assumption. If we
have evident that the population composition of Corpora’s had changed during
the twenty years, or that the criteria’s rigorous of the survey had changed,
the evident would certainly weaken the argument.
Next, the author depends on the
supposition that the computer cannot be the reason for the decline in fitness
by citing that the level of the fitness is parallel with the level of fitness.
Nevertheless, there is no evidence for this assumption. It is entirely possible
that the people who owns the computer used it few time, and they chose to spend
the time for exercising instead using computer. If so, the conclusion is not convincing.
Last, the author assumes that
consumption of the products related with fitness cause to increase the fitness
level by pointing out recent declining in the economy. However, it is doubt
that when the economy would be revitalized, the people want to buy the fitness
related product. They prefer the more economic fitness, for example walking in
the park or doing yoga in the home, instead spending money. Moreover, although
they purchase the fitness related products, it cannot be mean that they will
exercise with the product.
In sum, the argument is
gratuitous as it stands. To bolster the argument, the author must provide clear
evidence that the population composition and criteria of the survey and that
how many hours they use computer in the region of Corpora. Also, to better assess the
argument, I would need more information about the relationship between the
economy development and the purchasing of the athletic merchandises, and the
ratio of exercise using the athletic
