If Sarah were a concert pianist for a major orchestra, she would be famous. She is not a concert pianist since she is not famous.
The conclusion above is unsound because the author does not consider that
(A) Sarah could be a famous actress.
(B) Sarah could be a harpist for a major orchestra.
(C) Sarah could be a pianist with a rock group.
(D) Sarah could be a concert pianist with a minor orchestra.
(E) Sarah could be famous for another reason.

I pick (D) because it seems to me that the key to being famous is " Concert Pianist"----Causation is what is tested here. The assumption here is that one must be a Concert Pianist to be famous. Therefore if Sarah is a concert pianist for a minor orchestra, she is famous.
