A recurring account in a commercial bank is a great investment because it allows a person to accumulate a large sum over a period of time. All people who have become wealthy through their investments have invested in a recurring account.

Which of the following employs reasoning most similar to the one above?

(A) This quadrilateral may be a rectangle because quadrilaterals and rectangles have many properties in common. For one, all rectangles are quadrilaterals but all quadrilaterals are not rectangles.

(B) Training wheels on a bicycle typically do more harm than good because they make it harder for a child to learn to ride a bike. Training wheels provide too much support and thereby make it very difficult for a child to develop a sense of balance.

(C) Algebra is a valuable subject because it helps you to score high on the GMAT quantitative section. All those who know algebra well score highly in the quantitative section of the GMAT.

(D) Penicillin is a useful drug because it helps cure many diseases. Penicillin kills the bacteria that cause these diseases.

(E) The hit-and-run approach in the game of cricket is ineffective because the teams who use it usually lose. Coaches ask the players to refrain from using the hit-and-run technique.

I think original argument has flawed reasoning, mistaken reversal.

A recurring account -> large amount of money.

Large amount money(wealthy person) -> not necessarily would have become wealthy through recurring amount.

if A -> B, then if B -> need not be A.

Only C comes close.

But i still think C has error.

Had choice C read, "Algebra is a valuable subject because it helps you to score high on the GMAT quantitative section. All those who have scored highly in the quantitative section of GMAT must have known algebra". It would have been perfect match to mistaken reversal flaw in the original argument => if a person has scored high in quantitative section of GMAT, he may not have necessarily solved the problem using algebra.

any takers?

Please help
