Airplane manufacturer: I object to your characterization of our X-387 jets as dangerous. No X-387 in commercial use has ever crashed or even had a serious malfunction. Airline regulator: The problem with the X-387 is not that it, itself, malfunctions, but that it creates turbulence in its wake that can create hazardous conditions for aircraft in its vicinity.

The airline regulator responds to the manufacturer by doing which of the following?
(A) Characterizing the manufacturerâ€™s assertion as stemming from subjective interest rather than from objective evaluation of the facts

(B) Drawing attention to the fact that the manufacturerâ€™s interpretation of the word â€œdangerousâ€

The asnwer is between B and C.

The manufacturer argument is as follows: X-387 is not dangerous because no X-387 has ever crashed or had a serious malfunction. The airline regulator's argument is as follows: X-387 is dangerous because it creates turbulence that can create hazardous conditions: I think C is better than B. Therefore C should be the answer.

Clearly (B). The X-wing fighter is more dangerous than the manufacturer claims to realize.

B.

Dangerous is not defined by airplane crash, but also to thr problems it creates to planes within its vicinity.

The OA is B

I think C is wrong because the manufacturer never EXPlicity dismissed.
