    Question 7 of 10 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read the following passage: We have several options: we may be tempted to try to live by the Christian ideal of being "our brother's keeper," or by the Marxist ideal of "to each according to his needs." Since the needs of all in the water are the same, and since they can all be seen as "our brothers," we could take them all into our boat, making a total of 150 in a boat designed for 60. The boat swamps, everyone drowns. Complete justice, complete catastrophe.

By using numbers to support his data B. By putting quotation marks around a phrase C. By using a quote from a public figure D. By appealing to the audience's emotions
