I'm studying IELTS writing, and I just came across a confusing sentence from this band score 8 essay:
Nobody can argue that the acquisition of knowledge is more fun and easier with computers.
As I understand it, this sentence is saying that no one can argue for the opinion, that computers make learning more fun and easier.
But the rest of the paragraph is actually supporting the opinion. So it's supposed to mean the opposite: nobody can argue against the opinion.
Then I found another usage of the word 'argue':
He argued that America should stop Lend-Lease convoying because it needed to fortify its own Army with the supplies.
In this case, the author certainly means that "he" is in favour of something.
Is the first usage wrong? Or am I missing something?
