Columnist: "The mayor's opponents claim that the questions surrounding the vice-mayor's tax return make the mayor unfit to be re-elected. The vice-mayor, however, was directly elected by the public in an election prior to the election that put the mayor into office. Furthermore, the vice-mayor's faulty tax return can be clearly traced to an innocent error made by an accountant and it sheds no light on the ability of the vice­ mayor to perform his duties. "

Which of the following best describes the main point of the argument above?

A. The mayor is fit to be re-elected-Statement is too strong to be taken as conclusion

B. The vice-mayor is able to perform his duties-It is an inference;Therefore, It cannot be the conclusion.

C. Critics should not confuse the mayor's fitness for office with the vice-mayor's fitness for office-Irrelevant, as there is nowhere mentioned about critics;Therefore, It cannot be the conclusion.

D. The mayor's opponents argument about the vice-mayor's tax issues as they relate to the mayor's re-election Is seriously flawed.-This statement is perfect candidate for conclusion as it covers the whole jest of the argument

E. The Vice Mayor is not at fault for the mistake on his tax return.-Direct statement from the argument;Therefore, It cannot be the conclusion.
