An independent audit found no indication of tax avoidance on the part of the firm in the firmâ€™s accounts, therefore no such problem exists.
The questionable reasoning in the argument above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of the following?
(A) The plan for the introduction of the new product has been unmodified so far; therefore, it will not be modified in the future.
(B) The overall budget for the projects has been exceeded by a large amount; therefore, at least one of the projects has exceeded its budget by large amount.
(C) A compilation of the best student essays of the year includes no essays on current events; therefore, students have become apathetic toward current events.
(D) A survey of schools in the district found no school without a need for building repair; therefore, the education provided to students in this district is substandard.
(E) An examination of the index of the book found no listing for the most prominent critic of the theory the book advocates; therefore, the book fails to refer to that critic.
For me it was a tough choice between C and E. I finally chose C because it seems more of a questionable argument than E.
In E, books usually have an index, and the index is supposed to mention references. It is more plausible that if an index does not contain a reference, that reference does not exist.
