(B) People who have high blood pressure tend to be overweight. But before we draw any inferences, we should consider that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause high blood pressure, and weight gain can result from living unhealthily.

Same style of reason.
1 & 2 might exist together. But 1 & 2 do not cause each other. Both are actually caused by 3.

X does not cause Y
Y does not cause X

x and y are 2 separate effects of same kind of cause.

OPTION A C and D are irrelevant
Option E is faulty because it shows similarities between x and y ( Greek and Latin )

Only option B is parallel with the line of reasoning mentioned in the argument
