I don't know but somehow I thought D is the answer. A is making it too generic and C is talking about qualification which don't go with the premise. OA?

The question is asking about the principle ........... (D) is too specific/extreme in stating that no one who drinks can hold an office. Who says that a drunkard can not hold an office ? It is usually assumed that someone who drinks will not be made the head. But try selecting an answer with only the information given in the statement. No outside principles are allowed.

I see your point. You somehow read my mistake correctly and I had not taken into consideration (missed ) the fact that the argument is asking for an analogous principle. Still don't know the right answer but this makes me incline towards A. +1

Thanks. Lets hope the answer comes in soon.

I'm going with A also..

It was a close call with C but I ultimately decided that being "qualified" was too strong when the committee member was talking about being banned.

I rephrased the argument as such which helped me: "Do not put a leader in place if he would banned from a function he is overseeing"

D for me.

The argument comments on excessive drinking and leadership from the top down. D makes specifically refers to these points (commanding), while A refers to "any important position".

I'll be the devils advocate and go with D.

Easy A.

The gist is that one who can't perform any of the important jobs in the militray should not be chosen.

I am going with D as this is the one which is raising a common point of disqualification.(Excessive drinking).
