No one in the French department to which Professor
Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one
introductory level class in any one term. Moreover, the
only language classes being taught next term are
advanced ones. So it is untrue that both of the French
classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will
be introductory level classes.

The pattern of reasoning displayed in the argument
above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of
the following arguments?
(A) The Morrison Building will be fully occupied by
May and since if a building is occupied by May
the new tax rates apply to it, the Morrison
Building will be taxed according to the new
rates.
(B) The revised tax code does not apply at all to
buildings built before 1900, and only the first
section of the revised code applies to buildings
built between 1900 and 1920, so the revised
code does not apply to the Norton Building,
since it was built in 1873.
(C) All property on Overton Road will be
reassessed for tax purposes by the end of the
year and the Elnor Company headquarters is
on Overton Road, so ElnorтАЩs property taxes
will be higher next year.
(D) New buildings that include public space are
exempt from city taxes for two years and all new
buildings in the cityтАЩs Alton district are exempt
for five years, so the building with the large
public space that was recently completed in
Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.
(E) Since according to recent statute, a building that
is exempt from property taxes is charged for
city water at a special rate, and hospitals are
exempt from property taxes, FounderтАЩs
Hospital will be charged for city water at the
special rate.

I think is D.

Explanation:

Stimulus:
Sentence 1. - A first condition. (sufficient for conclusion- permanent)
Sentence 2. - A second conition (sufficient for conclusion, but just for next term)
Conclusion.

D: 1. New buildings that include public space are
exempt from city taxes for two years (permanent)

and

2. all new buildings in the cityтАЩs Alton district are exempt
for five years,( just for five years)

Conclusion: so the building with the large public space that
was recently completed in Alton will not be
subject to city taxes next year.

B is similar ( second condition is problem ) , but D is (fully parallel) the right choice.

I vacillated between B and D but took D. Right on the money.
