Electrons orbit around the nucleus of an atom in the same way that the Earth orbits around the Sun. It is well known that gravity is the major force that determines the orbit of the Earth. We may, therefore, expect that gravity is the main force that determines the orbit of an electron.

The argument above attempts to prove its case by

(A) applying well-known general laws to a specific case
(B) appealing to well-known specific cases to prove a general law about them
(C) testing its conclusion by a definite experiment
(D) appealing to an apparently similar case
(E) stating its conclusion without giving any kind of reason to think it might be true

Electrons orbit around an atom = Earth orbiting around the sun.
Now, since gravity determines the orbit of the Earth = gravity must determine the orbit of the Electron.


Its clear that the author argues citing the apparently similar case to prove his point of view, answer must be (D)
