According to a recent survey, marriage is fattening. Cited as
evidence is the survey's finding that the average woman gains 23
pounds and the average man gains 18 pounds during 13 years of
marriage.
The answer to which of the following questions would be most relevant
in evaluating the reasoning presented in the survey? (A) Why was the
period of time studied in the survey 13 years, rather than 12 or 14?
(B) Did some of the men surveyed gain less than 18 pounds during the
time they were married?
(C) How much weight is gained or lost in 13 years by single people of
comparable age to those surveyed?
(D) Were the women surveyed as active as the men surveyed, at the
time the survey was made?
(E) Will the reported gains be maintained over the lifetimes of the
persons surveyed?

We want to compare married people to non-married people in terms of weight gain. D erroneously compares married men to married women. How can we establish the relationship between married and non-married people then?
