Rodrigo: A number of commentators have recently opined that it is strange that the public should generally show more sympathy for the rich than for the middle class, and have recommended that we allot the bulk of our sympathy for those who make a fraction of the amount made by a millionaire, since those who make millions have enough money to ease most of the real difficulties in life. I agree with these commentators, and will be glad to receive the public’s sympathy for my troubles getting a license for my new yacht, since I only make 7/8 of what a millionaire makes per year.
Which of the following best describes a flaw in Rodrigo’s reasoning?
He makes an inappropriate generalization when referring to a group.
The commentators he cites have not set a minimum and a maximum fractional value at which one can receive sympathy.
He is not a millionaire, so he cannot own a yacht.
He illicitly exploits a second incompatible meaning of a term.
He accepts a claim based on its source, not its merits.
