If the law punishes littering, then the city has an
obligation to provide trash cans. But the law does
not punish littering, so the city has no such
obligation.
Which one of the following exhibits a flawed pattern
of reasoning most similar to that in the argument
above?

(A) If today is a holiday, then the bakery will not be
open. The bakery is not open for business.
Thus today is a holiday.
(B) Jenny will have lots of balloons at her birthday
party. There are no balloons around yet, so
today is not her birthday.
(C) The new regulations will be successful only if
most of the students adhere to them. Since
most of the students will adhere to those
regulations, the new regulations will be
successful.
(D) In the event that my flight had been late, I
would have missed the committee meeting.
Fortunately, my flight is on time. Therefore, I
will make it to the meeting.
(E) When the law is enforced, some people are
jailed. But no one is in jail. So clearly the law
is not enforced.

go for A

it is clearly flawed in the same way as the stem
other answer choices or only partly flawed and could be relevant argument
with one or two supporting premises.
