B) for me... again the "alternative explanation" :P
btw the observed effect seems to be the not fizz occuring.

For the flaw detection, it is crucial to determine the logic of the argument.

usually: baking soda + acidic liquid (e.g. vinegar) makes the fizz

thats the gist of the argument. I'd start to sort out irrelevant information.
That is: E (incentive to deceive is not mentioned and not an issue)
D (completely out of scope, because there is no indication that tests outside laboratory could lead to false conclusions
C (fizz is not being explained but the author also never indicates that fizz could have more than one meaning)

A trap. relates facts, which have all been mentioned, but in a wrong context. If the bottle contained something else besides vinegar, but still is an acidic liquid, then the fizz must've occured... but it did not. So the question actually is just, whether the bottle contains an acidic liquid at all.

I pick B!
One of the most important things to learn while solving such questions is to keep an eye on the scope of the argument and the answer choices!
Also, look out for statements which are just a rephrasing of the premises or facts given in the argument!

B for me. You can dismiss A, C and D. Between B and E I choose B, because E is not normaly a "normal" GMAT answer.
