Eighteenth-century moralist: You should never make an effort to acquire expensive new tastes, since they are a drain on your purse and in the course of acquiring them you may expose yourself to sensations that are obnoxious to you. Furthermore, the very effort that must be expended in their acquisition attests their superfluity.

The moralist’s reasoning is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that the moralist

(A) draws a conclusion that simply restates a claim presented in support of that conclusion
(B) takes for granted that the acquisition of expensive tastes will lead to financial irresponsibility
(C) uses the inherently vague term “sensations” without providing a definition of that term
(D) mistakes a cause of acquisition of expensive tastes for an effect of acquisition of such tastes
(E) rejects trying to achieve a goal because of the cost of achieving it, without considering the benefits of achieving it

In given argument moralist is describing only one side perspective of claim that we should not make efforts to acquire expensive tastes.

E is correct.
