All students have submitted applications for admission. Some of the applications for admission have not been acted upon. Therefore, some more students will be accepted. The logic of which of the following is most similar to that of the argument above?

(A) Some of the barrels have not yet been loaded on the truck, but all of the apples have been put into barrels. So, some more apples will be loaded onto the truck.

(B) All students who received passing marks were juniors.Xreceived a passing mark. Therefore, X is a junior.

(C) Some chemicals will react with glass bottles, but not with plastic bottles. Therefore, those chemicals should be kept in plastic bottles and not glass ones.

(D) All advertising must be approved by the Council before it is aired. This television spot for a new cola has not yet been approved by the Council. Therefore, it is not to be aired until the Council makes its decision.

(E) There are six blue marbles and three red marbles in this jar. Therefore, if I blindly pick out seven marbles, there should be two red marbles left to pick.

Could not Figure out the analogy btw the question and answer option A. please explain how A is the answer to this one..
Are we comparing barrels to applications and apples to students?
That some barrels (applications ) have not been loaded, however, all apples(students) have been put in barrels(applications). therefore, some apples (students ) will be loaded into the truck( given admission)

All students have submitted applications for admission---all of the apples have been put into barrels
Some of the applications for admission have not been acted upon--Some of the barrels have not yet been loaded on the truck
Therefore, some more students will be accepted-----so, some more apples will be loaded onto the truck.
