Question 12 - Analytical Writing Practice Test for the GMAT

When proofreading, what is the main error that should be corrected in this paragraph?

The first assumption the author made was that any student who did not attend the protest at the state capital building must not care about the proposed budget cuts. In reality, there could be many reasons a student did not attend. Some students may not have had the money to travel to the protest, while others may have had no means of transportation. Still other students could have had family or academic oblegations that required them to stay behind. The author assumes that if a student didn’t attend the protest, they simply don’t care. There could be many reasons a student did not attend, and thus this is a faulty assumption. The author should take other reasons into consideration before assuming that the students do not care about college funding.
