If he is innocent, then when we hold him under water for sixty seconds he will not drown. Since he did not die when we dunked him in the water, he must be innocent."

The logical structure of the argument above is most similar to which one of the following?

A. To insure that the remaining wetlands survive, they must be protected by the government. This particular wetland is being neglected. Therefore, it will soon perish.
B. There were nuts in that pie I just ate. There had to be, because when I eat nuts I break out in hives, and I just noticed a blemish on my hand.
C. The president will be reelected unless a third candidate enters the race. A third candidate has entered the race, so the president will not be reelected.
D.Every time Melinda has submitted her book for publication it has been rejected. So she should not bother with another rewrite.
E. When the government loses the power to tax one area of the economy, it just taxes another. The Supreme Court just overturned the sales tax, so we can expect an increase in the income tax.

I vote for B too.

A,C and D have negations in them, but A does not. E is not definitive like A is. That leaves us with B.
