Some people believe that witnessing violence in movies will discharge aggressive energy. Does watching someone else eat fill one’s own stomach?

In which one of the following does the reasoning most closely parallel that employed in the passage?

(A) Some people think appropriating supplies at work for their own personal use is morally wrong. Isn’t shoplifting morally wrong?
(B) Some people think nationalism is defensible. Hasn’t nationalism been the excuse for committing abominable crimes?
(C) Some people think that boxing is fixed just because wrestling usually is. Are the two sports managed by the same sort of people?
(D) Some people think that economists can control inflation. Can meteorologists make the sun shine?
(E) Some people think workaholics are compensating for a lack of interpersonal skills. However, aren’t most doctors workaholics?

"D".....prove a point by Analogy and not by example....only "D" fits the bill I believe.

D for me, more going by ears than critical reasoning :-D

I believe B C are out.
D pattern is: A -> B; it is stupid to say so because if C->not D
A is a slightly different pattern... ( A -> B; isn't also C = B? )
E is A -> B; it is stupid to say so because most C are A

I'd not be surprised if E is the answer

i think the clue is later part of the question. the later parts of the question and D, both, are parallel as these two parts are impossible. therefore D is OA.

Agree with (D). Actually 2nd sentence is trying to prove 1st sentence wrong. Only (D) does that.
