Chief Judge: The director of the Ethics and Fair play Authority would have the public believe that increases in the number of sports bookies caught demonstrate that sports betting is no longer prevalent. This is a specious argument, as unsound as it would be to assert that the ever--increasing rate at which petty thiefs are being run down demonstrates a level of safety to the public. The real cause of the increasedbookies caught is a greater efficiency in using technologies that detect malpractices.

Which of the following strategies is used in the presentation of the Chief Judge’s position?

(A) Questioning the motives of an opponent

(B) Showing that an opposing position is self-- contradictory

(C) Attacking an argument through the use of an analogy

(D) Demonstrating the inaccuracy of certain data

(E) Pointing out adverse consequences of a proposal
