People who are good at playing the game Drackedary
are invariably skilled with their hands. Mary is a very
competent watchmaker. Therefore, Mary would make
a good Drackedary player.
The flawed pattern of reasoning in the argument
above is most similar to that in which one of the
following?
(A) People with long legs make good runners.
Everyone in Daryl’s family has long legs.
Therefore, Daryl would make a good runner.
(B) People who write for a living invariably enjoy
reading. Julie has been a published novelist
for many years. Therefore, Julie enjoys
(C) All race car drivers have good reflexes. Chris is
a champion table tennis player. Therefore,
Chris would make a good race car driver.
(D) The role of Santa Claus in a shopping mall is
often played by an experienced actor. Erwin
has played Santa Claus in shopping malls for
years. Therefore, Erwin must be an
experienced actor.
(E) Any good skier can learn to ice-skate
eventually. Erica is a world-class skier.
Therefore, Erica could learn to ice-skate in a
day or two.

I go with C !

People good at Drackedary

Because good at game, they are skilled with hands.

Mary makes watches.

Mary would be a good Drackedary player

Assumption is watchmakers are good with their hands and being good with your hands is the only prerequisite to being a good drackedary player

Because of being a good race car driver, you have good reflexes

Chris is a champion tennis player

Therefore he would be a good racecar driver

same assumption

Assumption is tennis players have good reflexes and being having good reflexes is the only prerequisite to being a good racecar driver

All race car drivers have good reflexes. Chris is
a champion table tennis player. Therefore,
Chris would make a good race car driver.

Two assumptions:

1. Mary is skilled with her hands
2. All people that are skilled with their hands are good at playing the game Drackedary.

the first one is more feasible the second one is not.

2. All people that have good reflexes makes a good race car drivers.

the first one is more feasible the second one is not.

same logic as the stem , this is my answer (C)
