Any suggestions on how to solve this question?

Debater: The average amount of overtime per month worked by an employee in the manufacturing division of
the Haglut Corporation is 14 hours. Most employees of the Haglut Corporation work in the manufacturing
division. Furthermore, the average amount of overtime per month worked by any employee in the company
generally does not fluctuate much from month to month. Therefore, each month, most employees of the Haglut
Corporation almost certainly work at least some overtime.

The debater’s argument is most vulnerable to criticism on which of these grounds?

(A) It takes for granted that the manufacturing division is a typical division of the corporation with regard to
the average amount of overtime its employees work each month.

(B) It takes for granted that if a certain average amount of overtime is worked each month by each employee
of the Haglut Corporation, then approximately the same amount of overtime must be worked each month
by each employee of the manufacturing division.

(C) It confuses a claim from which the argument’s conclusion about the Haglut Corporation would necessarily
follow with a claim that would follow from the argument’s conclusion only with a high degree of probability.

(D) It overlooks the possibility that even if, on average, a certain amount of overtime is worked by the
members of some group, many members of that group may work no overtime at all.

(E) It overlooks the possibility that even if most employees of the corporation work some overtime each
month, any one corporate employee may, in some months, work no overtime.
