Working shorter workweeks causes managers to feel
less stress than does working longer workweeks. In
addition, greater perceived control over one's work
life reduces stress levels. It can be concluded, there-
fore, that shorter workweeks cause managers to feel
they have more control over their work life.

The argument made above uses which of the follow-
ing questionable techniques?
(A) Associating two conditions as cause and effect
on the basis of their being causally associated
with the same phenomenon
(B) Taking for granted that two factors that have a
certain effect individually produce that effect
more strongly when both act together.
(C) Assuming what it sets out to prove
(D) Using an irrelevant point in order to draw a
conclusion
(E) Basing a conclusion on preconceived views
about the needs of managers

I will go with A.

My explanation:

A causes B (Working shorter workweeks causes managers to feel less stress )
C causes B (greater perceived control over one's work life
reduces stress levels)

The conclusion says that A causes C (shorter workweeks cause managers to feel they have more control over their work life. )

Choice A clearly supports the above reasoning.
