Last year the county park system failed to generate enough revenue to cover its costs. Any business should be closed if it is unprofitable, but county parks are not businesses. Therefore, the fact that county parks are unprofitable does not by itself justify closing them.
The pattern of reasoning in the argument above is most closely paralleled in which one of the following?
(A) A prime-time television series should be canceled if it fails to attract a large audience, but the small audience attracted by the documentary series is not sufficient reason to cancel it, since it does not air during prime time.
(B) Although companies that manufacture and market automobiles in the United States must meet stringent air-quality standards, the OKESA company should be exempt from these standards since it manufactures bicycles in addition to automobiles.
(C) Although the province did not specifically intend to prohibit betting on horse races when it passed a law prohibiting gambling, such betting should be regarded as being prohibited because it is a form of gambling.
(D) Even though cockatiels are not, strictly speaking, members of the parrot family, they should be fed the same diet as most parrots since the cockatiel’s dietary needs are so similar to those of parrots.
(E) Since minors are not subject to the same criminal laws as are adults, they should not be subject to the same sorts of punishments as those that apply to adults.

A.
park not profitable.
businesses should close if not profitable.
parks not businesses.
therefore, even though parks are not profitable, they should not close it

documentary series do not attract large audience
Prime-time tv should be cancelled if it does not attract a large audience
documentary series not aired during prime time
therefore, even though documentary series do not attract large audience they should not cancel it

A seems to work the best.
