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.

The only reason E can't be correct is that we can't discount what the stem says ---- (though we can discount the logic of the stem as we have been asked to do) ---- viz. that Sarah is not famous.

E says - Sarah could be famous for another reason which contradicts the stem.

but what is the difference between D and A, B, C?
D says it is a small orchestra, which has nothing to do with a major one, although both are orchestras. D is not much different from ABC.

D

If Sarah is not famous, this doesn't mean she is not concert pianist. She may be concert pianist but not famous
