Cheddar cheese is higher in saturated fats than Gouda cheese. Because Brie cheese is higher in saturated fat than Camembert cheese, we can conclude that Cheddar cheese has more saturated fat than Camembert cheese.

Any of the following statements, if introduced as an additional premise, makes the above argument logically correct EXCEPT:

a) Camembert cheese has less saturated fat than Gouda cheese.

b) Gouda cheese is higher in saturated fat than Brie cheese.

c) Gouda cheese and Brie cheese have the same saturated fat content.

d) The saturated fat content of Cheddar cheese is equal to the saturated fat content of Brie.

e) Brie cheese is higher in saturated fat than cheddar cheese.

premise -
Saturated fat content wise : Cheddar > Gouda & Brie > Camembert

conclusion -
Saturated fat content wise : Cheddar > Camembert

Now, find an additional premise that does not logically connect the premise to the conclusion.

(A) Camembert < Gouda ..implies Camembert < Cheddar ...this logically connects to the conclusion

(B) Gouda > Brie .. implies that Gouda > Camembert and Cheddar > Camembert ....this logically connects to the conclusion

(C) Gouda = Brie .. implies Gouda > Camembert and Cheddar > Camembert ...this logically connects to the conclusion

(D) Cheddar = Brie .. implies Cheddar > Camembert ...this logically connects to the conclusion

(E) Brie > Cheddar .. since Brie > Camembert , we cannot conclude anything about Cheddar and Camembert ...Hence, this is the correct answer
