Betty: My opponent for the office of scout superintendent opposes a rule that would require all Wilderness Scout troop leaders to lead their scouts in the loyalty pledge before all meetings. How can my opponent claim she will represent the high moral standards of the Wilderness Scouts when she would forbid troop leaders from leading the pledge that proclaims our most important virtue?

Which of the following points would be most useful to someone disputing the reasoning of the argument above?

A. Some Wilderness Scouts also oppose the loyalty pledge rule.
B. Loyalty is only one of many virtues espoused by the Wilderness Scouts.
C. The opponent's position on the loyalty pledge rule may be atypical of her positions in general.
D. Refusing to require an activity like the loyalty pledge is not the same thing as forbidding it.
E. Opposing loyalty to an organization does not necessarily mean that one is disloyal to that organization.

Confused between D and E. Picked E in the end because the answer explains the situation in the argument. Could not make sense out of D.
Please explain.

Hi,

D: Perfectly refute the conclusion.- This provides new info which cast the doubt on the conclusion- It says the opponent just refusing the pledge, not saying it to be forbidden completely.- It opposes/ Weaken the conclusion made by betty- Correct

E: is actually provides info similar to the argument but it is irrelevant to the context- It says that opposing the pledge doesn't mean disloyal- Does it really weaken the argument?- May or May not be- It is Out of scope.

Hope this helps :)
