14. Demonstrate your application of critical thinking skills: The cost of living in a given area is directly
proportional to the wages paid by the dominant industry in that area. In Moomba, the dominant industry is
farming. However, in Sepra, the dominant industry is auto manufacturing. Thus, it is fair to conclude that
the cost of living must be higher in Sepra than in Moomba. This argument above assumes that…
              A. the quality of life in Sepra is higher than the quality of life in Moomba.
              B. the number of people manufacturing autos in Moomba is higher than the number of people
                   manufacturing autos in Sepra.
              C. the cost of living in Sepra is higher than the cost of living in any other area.
              D. wages paid by the auto manufacturing industry are higher than those of the farming
                   industry.
                                                                        SDV Course Demographics 4
