If Sarah were a concert pianist for a major orchestra, she would be famous. She is not a concert pianist since she is not famous.

The conclusion above is unsound because the author does not consider that

(A) Sarah could be a famous actress.
(B) Sarah could be a harpist for a major orchestra.
(C) Sarah could be a pianist with a rock group.
(D) Sarah could be a concert pianist with a minor orchestra.
(E) Sarah could be famous for another reason.

D.

concert pianist for a major orchestra -> famous

~ (famous) -> ~ (concert pianist)

~ : NOT

second premise is flawed. If she is not famous, it means she is not concert pianist for a major orchestra

agree with Duttsit, D is correct.
E can't be correct coz the conclusion already states that she's not famous ( famous in general, not only for a certain reason)

Just because she is not famous doesn`t necessarily mean that she is not a pianist.

Clearly D.
