The Japanese haiku is defined as a poem of three lines with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. English poets tend to ignore this fact. Disregarding syllable count, they generally call any three-line English poem with a â€œhaiku feelâ€

(A) is not true because no subjective feeling is mentioned in the text;
(B) - correct because the conclusion is too general, not enough evidence is given;
(C) out of scope;
(D) out of scope;
(E) does not reveal the flaw in the argument and also out of scope.

Btw, very nice CR

I felt A and B were really close. I am shooting for A though.

B is my choice. The author concludes that foreign poets has no respect for foreign traditions (which is broad in scope) simply because English poets call their poems a haiku as long as it has a 'haiku feel' to it.

(E) fails to acknowledge that ignoring something implies a negative judgment about that thing

Even if E were true - that ignoring something implies a negative judgment - the flaw in the argument would still remain because the conclusion is too broad based on the facts presented.

Even if English Poets have little regard for syllable count - we cannot say that they have little regard for foreign traditions - in fact they regard foreign traditions that's why they borrow the term Haiku - they just tailor its definition to suit their needs.

In my opinion, since they ask to find the flaw in the logical structure of the argument or in the text supporting the argument we should not take into account the mentioning of "disrespect" in the erroneous conclusion.
