Dr. A: The new influenza vaccine is useless at best and possibly dangerous. I would never use it on a patient.
Dr. B: But three studies published in the Journal of Medical Associates have rated that vaccine as unusually effective.
Dr. A: The studies must have been faulty because the vaccine is worthless.
In which of the following is the reasoning most similar to that of Dr. A?Dr.A.: [A] is bad. If [B] states that [A] is not bad, [B] is wrong.
(A) Three of my patients have been harmed by that vaccine during the past three weeks, so the vaccine is unsafe. - out
(B) Jerrold Jersey recommends this milk, and I don’t trust Jerrold Jersey, so I won’t buy this milk. - out. it should be "I won’t buy this milk, so I don’t trust Jerrold Jersey"
(C) Wingzz tennis balls perform best because they are far more effective than any other tennis balls. - out. There are no any comparison of a new vaccine with other ones
(D) I’m buying Vim Vitamins. Doctors recommend them more often than they recommend any other vitamins, so Vim Vitamins must be good. - out.
(E) Since University of Muldoon graduates score about 20 percent higher than average on the GMAT, Sheila Lee, a University of Muldoon graduate, will score about 20 percent higher than average when she takes the GMAT. - out
A,B,D are contradict directly to the reasoning of Dr.A
C (no comparison) ,E (no general group) is out of scope.
