13.Because some student demonstrations protesting his scheduled appearance have resulted in violence, the president of the Imperialist Society has been prevented from speaking about politics on campus by the dean of student affairs. Yet to deny anyone the unrestricted freedom to speak is to threaten everyoneâ€™s right to free expression. Hence the deanâ€™s decision has threatened everyoneâ€™s right to free expression.
The pattern of reasoning displayed above is most closely paralleled in which one of the following?
(A) Dr. Pacheco saved a childâ€™s life by performing emergency surgery. But surgery rarely involves any risk to the surgeon. Therefore, if an act is not heroic unless it requires the actor to take some risk, Dr. Pachecoâ€™s surgery was not heroic.
(B) Because anyone who performs an act of heroism acts altruistically rather than selfishly, a society that rewards heroism encourages altruism rather than pure self-interest.
(C) In order to rescue a drowning child, Isabel jumped into a freezing river. Such acts of heroism performed to save the life of one enrich the lives of all. Hence, Isabelâ€™s action enriched the lives of all.
(D) Fire fighters are often expected to perform heroically under harsh conditions. But no one is ever required to act heroically. Hence, fire fighters are often expected to perform actions they are not required to perform.
(E) Acts of extreme generosity are usually above and beyond the call of duty. Therefore, most acts of extreme generosity are heroic, since all actions that are above and beyond the call of duty are heroic.

I'm with C on this one.

Per stimulus, One isolated incident is generalized. C does the same thing.

C for me.

the stem of the argument says that the act will generally affect the entire society... C has the same line of reasoning.
