I maintain that the best way to solve our company’s present financial crisis is to bring out a new line of goods. I challenge anyone who disagrees with this proposed course of action to show that it will not work. A flaw in the preceding argument is that it

(A) employs group classifications without regard to individuals
(B) introduces an analogy which is weak
(C) attempts to shift the burden of proof to those who would object to the plan
(D) fails to provide statistical evidence to show that the plan will actually succeed
(E) relies upon a discredited economic theory

Conclusion-- Financial crisis is going to be solved by introduction of new products.
Assumption- No one will be able to prove above plan is flawed.
He is using generalisation to make his conclusion valid.

B- He has not given any analogy.
C- This is inference of the argument.
D-statistical evidence is out of argument
E- does not talk about economic theory.
A-correct answer - generalising while reasoning that no one will be able to prove the plan is not appropriate.

This is an example of fallacy: burden of proof.
Burden of proof is one type of fallacy in which someone makes a claim, but puts the burden of proof onto the other side.

(A) employs group classifications without regard to individuals
--There is no group in the argument

(B) introduces an analogy which is weak
--There is no analogy in the argument

(C) attempts to shift the burden of proof to those who would object to the plan
--Correct. The conclusion states that anyone who disagrees with the plan should come forward and prove it wrong.

(D) fails to provide statistical evidence to show that the plan will actually succeed
--Any evidence would have sufficed the plan. This choice is too narrow to be correct

(E) relies upon a discredited economic theory
--No economic theory is talked about in the argument
