### HideShow timer Statistics

A recent survey showed that 50 percent of people polled believe that elected officials should resign if indicted for a crime, whereas 35 percent believe that elected officials should resign only if they are convicted of a crime. Therefore, more people believe that elected officials should resign if indicted than believe that they should resign if convicted.
The reasoning above is flawed because it
(A) draws a conclusion about the population in general based only on a sample of that population
(B) confuses a sufficient condition with a required condition
(C) is based on an ambiguity of one of its terms
(D) draws a conclusion about a specific belief based on responses to queries about two different specific beliefs
(E) contains premises that cannot all be true

Has to be B.

Conviction requires an indictment.

B but I think you are wrong in your explanation.
Convicted is not a sufficient but a required condition.

I don't think A is the answer.

Stimulus states - A recent survey showed that 50 percent of people polled ...

We do not know what sample of the population was polled (if at all). B is definitely a stronger option than A.
