Bill: Smoke-detecting fire alarms can save lives. I believe that every apartment in this city should be required by law to be equipped with a smoke detector.
Joe: I disagree with your proposal. Smoke detectors are just as important for safety in private houses as they are in apartment.
From this exchange, it can be inferred that Joe has interpreted Billâ€™s statement to mean that
(A) the city should be responsible for providing smoke detectors for apartments
(B) residences outside the city should not be equipped with smoke detectors
(C) only apartments should be equipped with smoke detectors
(D) the risk of fire is not as great in private houses as it is in apartments
(E) the rate of death by fire is unusually high in the city in question

C it is.

Bill mentions apartment in his statement.
Joe disagrees by saying it is not just the apartments that need smoke detectors.

Between C and D, I pick C as it stays within the scope.

The statement says nothing about "risk of fire" ...

I vote for C.

D cannot be the answer 'coz we are not talking whether the risk is high or low.

Joe says:

So joe thinks that bill is only talking about apartment.

This is about as straightforward (C) as they come.

I believe that every apartment in this city should be required by law to be equipped with a smoke detector.
