5. Some people have questioned why the Homeowners Association is supporting Cooper’s candidacy for mayor. But if the Association wants a mayor who will attract more businesses to the town, Cooper is the only candidate it could support. So, since the Association is supporting Cooper, it must have a goal of attracting more businesses to the town.

The reasoning in the argument is in error because

(A) the reasons the Homeowners Association should want to attract more businesses to the town are not given
(B) the Homeowners Association could be supporting Cooper’s candidacy for reasons unrelated to attracting businesses to the town
(C) other groups besides the Homeowners Association could be supporting Cooper’ s candidacy
(D) the Homeowners Association might discover that attracting more businesses to the town would not be in the best interest of its members
(E) Cooper might not have all of the skills that are needed by a mayor who wants to attract businesses to a town

The reasoning in the stem:

If Business, then Copper
Therefore, if Copper, then Business—a clear error.

The correct conclusions:
if Copper, then may or may not be Business
if NOT Copper, then NOT Business

B is correct.
