It has been argued that since there has to be some limit on the funding of university education by governments, it would be best to target such funding, giving a lower priority to subjects which provide little benefit to society. Some subjects, such as Medicine, Engineering and Computing should be well funded, because they are clearly of great worth to the community. Subjects such as Classics, Literature and Art should be funded at a much lower level. These subjects are primarily of interest to the individual, and a wealthy society should give some subsidy to hobby subjects. However, it must be recognised that the future of society lies in the training and development of those people who will contribute the most.
Which one of the following must be assumed in the above argument?
Medicine, Engineering and Computing are not very interesting subjects to study
Subjects which are of interest to individuals can also provide benefit to society
A wealthy society should not subsidise subjects which are of interest only to individuals
The study at universities of Classics, Literature and Art provides little benefit to society
The training of those people who will contribute most to society requires an increase in government funding in university education
