(A) She misses Al’s point entirely.- She understood the point
(B) She attacks Al personally rather than his reasoning.-Out of scope
(C) She points out that Al made an unwarranted assumption.- Keep it
(D) She ignores the detailed internal development of Al’s logic.Keep it
(E) She introduces a false analogy.-She didnt introduced analogy.

Between C and D. D states she did not under AI internal development. but she actually pointed out the pre-assumption of Al for taking Humans as intelligent.
So C is the Answer
