7. Murray: You claim Senator Brandon has accepted gifts from lobbyists. You are wrong to make this criticism. That it is motivated by personal dislike is shown by the fact that you deliberately avoid criticizing other politicians who have done what you accuse Senator Brandon of doing.
Jan: You are right that I dislike Senator Brandon, but just because I have not criticized the same failing in others doesn't' mean you can excuse the senator's offense.
If Murray and Jane are both sincere in what they say, then it can properly be concluded that they agree that
(A) Senator Brandon has accepted gifts from lobbyists
(B) It is wrong for politicians to accept gifts from lobbyists
(C) Jane's criticism of Senator Brandon is motivated only by personal dislike
(D) Senator Brandon should be criticized for accepting gifts from lobbyists
(E) One or more politicians have accepted gifts from lobbyists
Murray only objects to Jan's criticisim, but that does not mean the Murray also accepts that Senator Brandon has accepted gifts from lobbyists.
The argument given in the premises holds even if Murray believes that Brandon has not taken gifts.
You claim Senator Brandon has accepted gifts from lobbyists Juan might just be accusing Senator Brandon becaus eof dislike
you deliberately avoid criticizing other politicians who have done what you accuse Senator Brandon of doing.
Juan might come out say.
"Well I dislike Brandon and let us assume that he has taken gifts then just because I dont accuse other senators does not mean he is right"
A can be taken out now.
B goes to extreme saying taking gifts from lobbysts is always wrong. Taking gifts is just quoted as a common action thought to have been commited by two parties in question.
This leaves us with E and it is the only statement that states commonality between the two arguments
