The most recent series of holiday -gmatclub test cr V03-09 [#permalink]

I took free gmat club test today and got the below qn. I think the OA is wrong. I donot know if it is ok to post gmat club test qns here. please delete this post if i have done a mistake.
Consumer Safety Advocate:The most recent series of holiday string lights is dangerous because the plastic coating over the wires is thin, making it more likely that the wires will be exposed and cause a fire.
Manufacturer:Our company has taken extensive precautions with the manufacturing process of the glass for the bulbs to assure that each one can withstand high temperatures without cracking. Because of this process, the danger of fire is extremely low.
The manufacturer’s response is flawed as a refutation of the consumer safety advocate’s argument because it A) Does not offer to issue a recall order on a product that is clearly dangerous. B) Does not address the consumer safety advocate’s concern about the dangers posed by thin wiring. C) Does not give specific information on the process by which the glass is strengthened. D)Focuses too much attention on the process that strengthens the glass, and gives too few details about the manufacture of the wiring. E)Focuses too much attention on the manufacturer’s precautions and not enough on the consumer safety advocate’s concerns
OA is B. in the statement it is given as plastic coating is thin which is dangerous. Thin wire is not at all mentioned. It can be thick wire with thin coating. hence answer should be E.
