Counselor: Hagerle sincerely apologized to the physician for lying to her. So Hagerle owes me a sincere apology as well, because Hagerle told the same lie to both of us.

Which one of the following principles, if valid, most helps to justify the counselor’s reasoning?

(A) It is good to apologize for having done something wrong to a person if one is capable of doing so sincerely.

(B) If someone tells the same lie to two different people, then neither of those lied to is owed an apology unless both are.

(C) Someone is owed a sincere apology for having been lied to by a person if someone else has already received a sincere apology for the same lie from that same person.

(D) If one is capable of sincerely apologizing to someone for lying to them, then one owes that person such an apology.

(E) A person should not apologize to someone for telling a lie unless he or she can sincerely apologize to all others to whom the lie was told.

Answer is C

I took this as a must be true type stimulus.The physician's argument is simple : if Hargerly apologised sincerely to the physician,he/she must apologize sincerely to the counselor

A. This a generalizing based on just single instance and could be true but is not definitely.
B. Again you can not infer this because the stimulus does not say so.It only talks of obligation to apologize and not the other way. The counselor does not have to agree to this.
C. This just restates the counselor's argument and is CORRECT.
D. This is a bad reversal. Just because one can sincerely apologize does not mean one actually owes another an apology.
E. Once again this speaks of obligation not to apologize and though the counselor could agree with this principle,he also may not. All the counselor agrees to has been said in the argument.

Dear experts, can anyone please explain the difference between C and D?

I assume D is incorrect because it talks about "capability" to give an apology, which is not in the scope of the argument.

i picked C

My rationale is that the structure of the question stem is the same as we have in C.

Was confused between B and C though

I rejected B because argument talks about Sincere apology while option B talks about any apology

Let me try if it helps- Yes, the question doesn't talk about the capability
