14. Advertisement: HomeGlo Paints, Inc., has won the prestigious Golden Paintbrush Award ?given to the one paint manufacturer in the country that has increased the environmental safety of its product most over the past three years ?for HomeGlo Exterior Enamel. The Golden Paintbrush is awarded only on the basis of thorough tests by independent testing laboratories. So when you choose HomeGlo Exterior Enamel, you will know that you have chosen the most environmentally safe brand of paint manufactured in this country today.

The flawed reasoning in the advertisement most closely parallels that in which one of the following?

(A) The ZXC audio system received the overall top ranking for looks, performance, durability, and value in Listeners? Report magazine' s ratings of currently produced systems. Therefore, the ZXC must have better sound quality than any other currently produced sound system.

(B) Morning Sunshine breakfast cereal contains, ounce for ounce, more of the nutrients needed for a healthy diet than any other breakfast cereal on the market today. Thus, when you eat Morning Sunshine, you will know you are eating the most nutritious food now on the market.

(C) The number of consumer visits increased more at Countryside Market last year than at any other market in the region. Therefore, Countryside' s profits must also have increased more last year than those of any other market in the region.

(D) Jerrold's teachers recognize him as the student who has shown more academic improvement than any other student in the junior class this year. Therefore, if Jerrold and his classmates are ranked according to their current academic performance, Jerrold must hold the highest ranking.

(E) Margaret Durring' s short story "The Power Lunch" won three separate awards for best short fiction of the year. Therefore, any of Margaret Durring' s earlier stories certainly has enough literary merit to be included in an anthology of the best recent short fiction.

D is correct.
I fell into the trap without noticing that the paint company has only increased the safety of its paint the most. This does not mean that it is the safest paint. Since I did not notice the word increased I just concluded that the statement is logically correct.
D has the same flaw that the question has. I chose A which has no flaw at all.
