The flaw in reasoning is as mentioned in options A.
A says that since studies were found flawed this implies that irradiated food is not safe. but even studies are flawed it is quite possible that irradiated food is safe.

lets concentrate on option A. we are looking flaw in activists reasoning. Activist says that irradiated food is not safe because the method( used to establish food is safe ) itself is not valid, so this implies that food is not safe.

in simple word, lets say I established some statement to be true using some method, latter i came to know that the method i used was wrong. This does not mean that the established statement is wrong, it's quite possible that statement is true. which can be validated with some correct method.
hope this helps.

well it's difficult to put in words why option C is wrong, let me try :)
author is concerned about whether method is right or wrong not about how strongly or weakly it supports the out come.

btw what is OA.

please consider giving kudos if the discussion helped ..
thanks
