### HideShow timer Statictics

In the past, teachers, bank tellers, and secretaries were predominantly men; these occupations slipped in pay and status when they became largely occupied by women. Therefore, if women become the majority in currently male-dominated professions like accounting, law, and medicine, the income and prestige of these professions will also drop.
The argument above is based on
(A) another argument that contains circular reasoning
(B) an attempt to refute a generalization by means of an exceptional case
(C) an analogy between the past and the future
(D) an appeal to popular beliefs and values
(E) an attack on the character of the opposition

I would go with C

A â€“ There is no ciruclar reasoning â€“ many women took up to banking and teaching and the pay slipped.
B â€“ The argument is not refuting anything
D â€“ It is not a belief it is a fact that the pay slipped in the banking and teaching professions.
E â€“ There is no attack here
