9. Any announcement authorized by the head of the department is important. However, announcements are sometimes issued, without authorization, by people other than the head of the department, so some announcements will inevitably turn out not to be important.

The reasoning is flawed because the argument

(A) does not specify exactly which communications are to be classified as announcements

(B) overlooks the possibility that people other than the head of the department have the authority to authorize announcements

(C) leaves open the possibility that the head of the department never, in fact, authorizes any announcements

(D) assumes without warrant that just because satisfying a given condition is enough to ensure an announcement's importance, satisfying that condition is necessary for its importance

(E) fails to distinguish between the importance of the position someone holds and the importance of what that person may actually be announcing on a particular occasion

IMO, D is the right answer. The argument assumes that information being "authorized" by the head of the department is deemed to be important. However, it could be that information authorized by the head of the department is also unimportant or conversely, information not authorized by the head department could be very important. Therefore, the very fact of "authorizing" information to be broadcast does not result in the importance of that information. D clearly states that.

Answer: D

Just because the Head of the Dept. authorizes their announcements and they are all important doesn't mean that because I don't authorize my announcements that they're not important.

D states: assumes without warrant that just because satisfying a given condition is enough to ensure an announcement's importance, satisfying that condition is necessary for its importance."
