Although all contemporary advertising tries to persuade, only a small portion of contemporary advertising can be considered morally reprehensible. It nevertheless follows that some attempts at persuasion can be regarded as morally reprehensible.
Which one of the following, in its logical features, most closely parallels the reasoning used in passage?
(A) None of the chemicals used for cleaning the Sistine Chapel will affect the original dyes. Hence, the colors used by Michelangelo will be fully restored.
(B) Not all operational tracking studies are conducted to illustrate exact corporate returns on investment. Hence, some of these studies are not reliable.
(C) A good manager always makes important decisions on the basis of adequate data, although of course some managers fail to do this. It follows that some managers are not good managers.
(D) There is a direct correlation between the number of times you repeat something and the degree to which you retain it. Therefore, repetition is always a critical factor in remembering.
(E) Some short poems are thematically pluralistic, since some sonnets are characterized by such pluralism, and all sonnets are short poems.

Tough!
I agrees with E. Took my like 6 minutes
Here is what the argument is saying:
Some C -> reprehensible
Some attempt to persuade is morally reprehensible

E says:
All Sonnet -> short poems
Some Sonnet -> pluralism
Some short poems are thematically pluralistic

Although not exactly the same, but I tried mapping out other choices, but none make any sense....

Between C and E. I picked E. BKK has explained it well.
