Just as the fishing line becomes too taut, so too the trials and tribulations of life in the city can become so stressful that one's mind can snap.
Which one of the following most closely parallels the reasoning used in the argument above?
A. Just as the bow may be drawn too taut, so too may one's life be wasted pursuing self-gratification.
B. Just as a gambler's fortunes change unpredictably, so too do one's career opportunities come unexpectedly.
C. Just as a plant can be killed by over watering it, so too can drinking too much water lead to lethargy.
D. Just as the engine may race too quickly, so too may life in the fast lane lead to an early death.
E. Just as an actor may become stressed before a performance, so too may dwelling on the negative cause depression.
Good Question ... IMO D.
Premise states the following reasoning:
If X is stressed to extreme, then Y will snap.
Only option D follows this line of reasoning.
If Car engine runs too fast ( i.e stressed to extreme ) then it can break,
Similarly Life in the fast lane (i.e exerting too much ) then Life can end.
