20. According to sources who can be expected to know, Dr. Maria Esposito is going to run in the mayoral election. But if Dr. Esposito runs, Jerome Krasman will certainly not run against her. Therefore Dr. Esposito will be the only candidate in the election.
The flawed reasoning in the argument above most closely parallels that in which one of the following?
(A) According to its management, Brownâ€™s Stores will move next year. Without Brownâ€™s being present, no new large store can be attracted to the downtown area. Therefore the downtown area will no longer be viable as a shopping district.
(B) The press release says that the rock group Rollercoaster is playing a concert on Saturday. It wonâ€™t be playing on Friday if it plays on Saturday. So Saturday will be the only day this week on which Rollercoaster will perform.
(C) Joshua says the interviewing panel was impressed by Marilyn. But if they were impressed by Marilyn, they probably thought less of Sven. Joshua is probably right, and so Sven will probably not get the job.
(D) An informant says that Rustimann was involved in the bank robbery, If Rustimann was involved, Jones was certainly not involved. Since these two are the only people who could have been involved. Rustimann is the only person the police need to arrest.
(E) The review said that this book is the best one for beginners at programming. If this book is the best, that other one canâ€™t be as good. So this one is the book we should buy.

B it is.

Flaw = Clearly the assumption is that there can't be a third person besides esposito and krasman who could run. So the conclusion is vulnerable to a potential situation when a third person turns up. The argument would not hold.

In B - again the assumption is that if not friday then only sat remains whereas potentially there's nothing stopping themfrom playing on other days.

B it is.

D is very close, but a trap. It explicitly states that only two could have been involved.
(D) An informant says that Rustimann was involved in the bank robbery, If Rustimann was involved, Jones was certainly not involved. Since these two are the only people who could have been involved. Rustimann is the only person the police need to arrest.
