Answer has to be D. I think a lot of people are missing the implication of the statement "because a man possessing such wisdom would surely find a way to avoid poverty". The reasoning is that if a man is wise then he would surely use his wisdom to drive himself out of poverty, implying that the wise man actually cares about making money. option D says that the wise man is too busy pursuing wisdom to worry about being poor, that he doesn't give a damn about money. hence D presents the most significant flaw.
Reviewer: The Plain Truth, a biography of the philosopher Socrates, states that Socrates was both very wise and very poor. The book must be incorrect, because a man possessing such wisdom would surely find a way to avoid poverty.
Which of the following best shows the most significant flaw in the reviewer's argument?
A) Every individual who is wise desires to be a philosopher.
B) Socrates would not have been executed by the city of Athens if he had not been influential.
C) Conceptions of wealth vary over time, and what is now considered poor would have been very wealthy in Socrates' time.
D) Many people who are considered wise are too preoccupied with pursuing wisdom to care about their economic status.
E) Although Socrates was not wealthy, he had many wealthy friends who willingly took care of him.
