A nationwide poll of students, parents, and teachers showed that over 90 percent believe that an appropriate percentage of their school's budget is being spent on student counseling programs. It seems, then, that any significant increase in a school's budget should be spent on something other than student counseling programs.
Which one of the following decribes a flaw in the reasoning of the argument above?
A) The argument confuses a mere coincidence with a causal relationship
B) The argument confuses the percentage of the budget spent on a program with the overall amount spent on that program
C) The argument fails to justify its presumption that what is true of a part of the budget is also true of the total budget.
D) The argument fails to consider the possibility that money could be saved by training students as peer counselors.
E) The argument fails to consider that if more money is spent on a program, then more money cannot also be used for other purposes.
IMO B. If more money is allocated in school's budget, the percentage of money allocated to counseling programs would be reduced, although the amount of money spent on such a program would be the same. This could chage the opinion of students, parents and teachers.
