Many people change their wills on their own every few years, in response to significant changes in their personal or financial circumstances. This practice can create a problem for the executor when these people are careless and do not date their wills: the executor will then often know neither which one of several undated wills is the most recent, nor whether the will drawn up last has ever been found. Therefore, people should not only date their wills but also state in any new will which will it supersedes, for then there would not be a problem to begin with.
The reasoning in the argument is flawed because the argument
(A) treats a partial solution to the stated problem as though it were a complete solution
(B) fails to distinguish between prevention of a problem and successful containment of the adverse effects that the problem might cause
(C) proposes a solution to the stated problem that does not actually solve the problem but merely makes someone else responsible for solving the problem
(D) claims that a certain action would be a change for the better without explicitly considering what negative consequences the action might have
(E) proposes that a certain action be based on information that would be unavailable at the time proposed for that action

should be A

the executor will then often know neither which one of several undated wills is the most recent, nor whether the will drawn up last has ever been found

The proposed solution solves only the first case

I think it is A.
If people date their wills and state in any new will which will it supersede, there still be a problem "whether the will drawn up last has ever been found".
So it is only partial solution.
What is OA?

A. Writing a date and putting a will number that a will will supercede DOESN'T guarantee that the will will be found later.
