Herbalist: Many of my customers find that their physical coordination improves after drinking juice containing certain herbs. A few doctors assert that the herbs are potentially harmful, but doctors are always trying to maintain a monopoly over medical therapies. So there is no reason not to try my herb juice.

The reasoning in the herbalist’s argument is flawed because the argument

A- Attempts to force acceptance of a claim by inducing fear of the consequences of rejecting that claim
B- Bases a conclusion on claims that are inconsistent with each other
C- Rejects a claim by attacking the proponents of the claim rather than addressing the claim itself
D- Relies on evidence presented in terms that presuppose the truth of the claim for which the evidence is offered.
E- Mistakes the observation that one thing happens after another for proof that the second thing is the result of the first.

I really need more examples to understand the options. Everything stated in verbal GMAT is so unclear to me

let us simplify the argument given here --

Premise
1. many customers found that their physical coordination improves after drinking herb juice
2. a few doctors assert that herbs are potentially harmful
3. BUT doctors are always trying to maintain a monopoly over medical therapies

Conclusion
No reason not to try the herb juice

Note that the argument rejects point #2 in the premise by attacking the "source" of the argument and not by attacking the argument itself. This is a classic flaw in reasoning.

Option A - Incorrect

The author does not try to induce "fear of consequences" of his claim. Incorrect.

Option B - Incorrect

None of the three points mentioned in the premise contradict each other. Incorrect

Option C - Correct answer

Correct answer. This answer states that the author establishes his claim by attacking doctors by stating that the doctors are not trustworthy. Hence, the claims they make are also not trustworthy. However, the argument does not evaluate the claim itself.

Option D - Incorrect

this suggests that the argument employs circular reasoning. I.e. Premise = conclusion.
This is not done here.

Option E - Incorrect

One thing happens after the other is not mentioned here.
