Some people have questioned the judge’s objectivity in cases of sex discrimination against women. But the record shows that in sixty percent of such cases, the judge has decided in favor of the women. This record demonstrates that the judge has not discriminated against women in cases of sex discrimination against women.
The argument above is flawed in that it ignores the possibility that

(A) a large number of the judge’s cases arose out of allegations of sex discrimination against women
(B) many judges find it difficult to be objective in cases of sex discrimination against women
(C) the judge is biased against women defendants or plaintiffs in cases that do not involve sex discrimination
(D) the majority of the cases of sex discrimination against women that have reached the judge’s court have been appealed from a lower court
(E) the evidence shows that the women should have won in more than sixty percent of the judge’s cases involving sex discrimination against women

Please explain the question with your answers.
Thanks in advance!!

So what? Let it be! We are not looking for number of cases comes into the Judge's plate.

(b) many judges find it difficult to be objective in cases of sex discrimination against women
Doesn't explain whether Judge is wrong or right.

C) the judge is biased against women defendants or plaintiffs in cases that do not involve sex discrimination
The argument is not worrying about non sex discrimination cases.

(D) the majority of the cases of sex discrimination against women that have reached the judge’s court have been appealed from a lower court
Still, this doesn't prove whether judge is wrong or right.

(E) the evidence shows that the women should have won in more than sixty percent of the judge’s cases involving sex discrimination against women
Yep. This answer shows that the judge has discrimination against women!

i was not very firm with E initially, but i see that when i compare this with other options, E works out best.
And was then happy to see that other folks have also opted for C.

only two possibilities here.Either woman should have won in those cases or judges should be biased to give it to women.

A and E does the same.

E is better choice and hence a winner.

E shows that the women should have won but not won due to judges' discrimination in such cases thus weakened the statement that the judges are not biased.
