Alba: I don’t intend to vote for Senator Frank in the next election. She is not a strong supporter of the war against crime.
Tam: But Senator Frank sponsored the latest anticrime law passed by the Senate.
Alba: If Senator Frank sponsored it, it can’t be a very strong anticrime law.
Which of the following identifies the most serious logical flaw in Alba’s reasoning?
(A) The facts she presents do not support her conclusion that Senator Frank is soft on crime.
(B) She assumes without proof that crime is the most important issue in the upcoming election.
(C) She argues in a circle, using an unsupported assertion to dismiss conflicting evidence.
(D) She attacks Senator Frank on personal grounds rather than on he merit as a political leader.
(E) In deciding not to vote for Senator Frank, she fails to consider issues other than crime.

Alba's statement does not do anything to counter Tam's evidence. In stead she blindly refutes the evidence based on her bias and not on factual evidence.

Hope that helps... :|

C...

unsupported assertion - The law is not a strong one.
conflicting evidence - Senator sponsored the law.

the assertion is not strong enough to reach the conclusion that the senator is against war against crime
