### HideShow timer Statistics

9. Any announcement authorized by the head of the department is important. However, announcements are sometimes issued, without authorization, by people other than the head of the department, so some announcements will inevitably turn out not to be important.

The reasoning is flawed because the argument

(A) does not specify exactly which communications are to be classified as announcements
(B) overlooks the possibility that people other than the head of the department have the authority to authorize announcements
(C) leaves open the possibility that the head of the department never, in fact, authorizes any announcements
(D) assumes without warrant that just because satisfying a given condition is enough to ensure an announcementâ€™s importance, satisfying that condition is necessary for its importance
(E) fails to distinguish between the importance of the position someone holds and the importance of what that person may actually be announcing on a particular occasion

Going with D on this one. it assumes that because an announcement annouced by the HOD is important, any announcements not made by the MOD is not important (satisfying that condition is nescessary for its improatace)
