Many pregnant women suffer from vitamin deficiency, but this is frequently
not due to vitamin deficiency in their diets; most often it is because they
have higher requirements for vitamins than do the rest of the population.
¡¡
The best criticism of the reasoning in the statement above is that it

a. fails to specify the percentage of pregnant women who suffer from vitamin deficiency
b. gives insufficient information about why pregnant women have higher vitamin requirements than do other groups
c. fails to employ the same reference group for both uses of the term "vitamin deficiency"
d. provides insufficient information about the incidence of vitamin deficiency
¡¡in other groups with high vitamin requirements
e. uses "higher requirements" in an ambiguous manner

here, in my opinion, we can see that the conclution is:

Many pregnant women suffer from vitamin deficiency.

so, only B talks and critisizes the conclution, that is why I will go for B

I believe B is the answer. The argument has an causal assumption which might not be correct.

(I) Pregnant woman suffer from vitamin deficiency.
(II) This is not due to vitamin deficiency in diets.
(III) They have higher requirements for vitamins.

What's wrong with this? It first says that they suffer from VD, then it says it's not VD. The VD in the two sentences means two different things.

c. fails to employ the same reference group for both uses of the term "vitamin deficiency"
