According to advertisements, the higher a suntan lotion ¡s sun protection factor, or SPF, the more protection from sunburn . In order for a suntan lotion to work, however, one has to remember to put it on before going in the sun, put on an adequate amount to cover the skin, and reapply it as needed. Therefore, it really does not matter what SPF a suntan lotion has.

Which one of the following best identifies the error in reasoning made in the passage?

(A) It is unreasonable to assume that the only purpose of a suntan lotion is to provide protection from sunburn.

(B) Because some people get sunburned more easily than others, the fact that there are different SPFs cannot be ignored.

(C) It cannot be concluded that the SPF is not important just because there are requirements for the application of the suntan lotion.

(D) It is unreasonable to assume that all suntan lotions require the same application

(E) There is no reason to assume that manufacturer are unaware that people sometimes forget to apply suntan lotion before going in the sun.

Please prove for the explaination as well

I choose B
The author mentions "and reapply it as needed" ... this reapplication will depend on SPF. Hence we cannot ignore it

C

The argument says that SPF determines the protection and we should use the SPF suntan lotion. Later it concludes that SPF is not important as long as you make sure to apply enough. C exposes this error. Lotion may just be a medium to apply SPF. Simply because you apply lotion does not mean that SPF is not important.

I choose C. I can deduce B from common sense, but I can't get it from the statement.

I picked up B first. After looking at OA, C looks fine. However, I did not consider C at all in the first look.

Oh God!! Save me!!

We need to show that the author made an error by saying SPF is not important as long as the lotion is applied as described in the passage.

(A) It is unreasonable to assume that the only purpose of a suntan
lotion is to provide protection from sunburn.

- We need to show SPF is important, irregardless of how it is applied. The purpose is not important. So A is out

(B) Because some people get sunburned more easily than others, the
fact that there are different SPFs cannot be ignored.

- SPF is for sunburn, not for varying degrees of sunburn. Moreover, it has not shown us that SPF is independent of the application. B is out.

(C) It cannot be concluded that the SPF is not important just because
there are requirements for the application of the suntan lotion.

- Exactly what we needed.

(D) It is unreasonable to assume that all suntan lotions require the
same application

- Even if different lotions require different application, it has not disputed the fact that SPF is important.

(E) There is no reason to assume that manufacturers are unaware that
people sometimes forget to apply suntan lotion before going in the
sun.

- Even if manufacturers are aware that people sometimes forget to apply the lotion, it has not shown SPF is not important

So for me.
