A well-known sports figure found that combining publicity tours with playing tours led to problems, so she stopped combining the two. She no longer allows bookstore appearances and playing in competition to occur in the same city within the same trip. This week she is traveling to London to play in a major competition, so during her stay in London she will not be making any publicity appearances at any bookstore in London.

Which one of the following most closely parallels the reasoning used in the passage?

(A) Wherever there is an Acme Bugkiller, many wasps are killed. The Z family garden has an Acme Bugkiller, so any wasps remaining in the garden will soon be killed.
(B) The only times that the hospital’s emergency room staff attends to relatively less serious emergencies are times when there is no critical emergency to attend to. On Monday night the emergency room staff attended to a series of fairly minor emergencies, so there must not have been any critical emergencies to take care of at the time.
(C) Tomato plants require hot summers to thrive. Farms in the cool summers of country Y probably do not have thriving tomato plants.
(E) Butter knives are not sharp. Q was not murdered with a sharp blade, so suspect X’s butter knife may have been the murder weapon.

This is a good one... The first part defines a rule, where the second part applies the rule

A - perhaps - there is a rule and then the application, specific
B - likely - the first part defines, and the second part applies
C - perhaps - also works, but weaker than B
D - out - might be good logic, but doesn't parallel the reasoning
E - out - there's no definition of a rule (cause/effect), only the statment about butter knives

I say B

I say 'D'. B is deriving a conclusion about why they are attending. Original reasoning says "So she WILL". D resembles.
