Free public education is the best form of education there is. Therefore, we must fight to ensure its continued existence; that is, we must be ready to defend the principle of equality of educational opportunity. Because this principle is we worth defending, it is clear that free public education is better than any other form of education.

Which one of the following illustrates the same weak reasoning as found in the passage?

(A) I love music, and that’s why I listen to it constantly. I have my stereo or radio on every waking minute. Since I play music all the time, I must really love it.
(B) Books are my most valuable possessions. My books are like my friends—each pleases me in different ways. Just as I would give up everything to save my friends, so too with my books.
(C) I would much rather be poor and respected than be rich and despised. To have the respect of others is far more valuable than to have millions of dollars.
(D) I have never been betrayed by any of my friends. They have been true to me through good times and bad. Therefore I will never betray any of my friends.
(E) Because every plant I have ever seen has green leaves, I have concluded that all plants must have green leaves. This looks like a plant but it does not have green leaves, so it cannot be a plant

It's one of the LSAT questions. I initiallly got it wrong.

They become very tough after 2/3 of a section.

1. Free Edu is best ------> Thus, lets defend it.
2. We are defending it. -------> Thus, free education is best.

Only A mimic this.

This is definitely a headache. Took more than 3 minutes :roll: but arrived at A.

Free Education is best. ---> Therefore it should be defended [A -> B]
Because it is worth defending ---> Best form of education [B -> A]

I love music --> That's why I listen to it constantly [A -> B]
I play it all the time --> I must love music [B -> A]
