It follows A>B , B>C, C>D thereby A>D

Which one of the following most closely parallels the reasoning in the argument above?
(A) If you have good health, you can earn a lot. If you can earn a lot, you can buy an expensive house. So if you have good health, you can have a comfortable life.
A>B , B>C, A>D no linking between A and D.

(B) If you drink too much alcohol, you will feel sick. If you drink too much alcohol, you will have no money left. So if you have no money left, you will feel sick.
A >B,A>C, B>C .. No link

(C) If you swim energetically, your heart rate increases. If your heart rate increases, you are overexcited. So if you swim energetically, you are overexcited.
A>B, B>C, A>C correspondence to the original reasoning hence the answer,

(D) If you take a great deal of exercise, you are physically fit. If you take a great deal of exercise, you are exhausted. So if you are physically fit, you are exhausted.
A>B, A>C, B>C no correlation

(E) If you have a large amount of money in the bank, you are confident about the future. If you are optimistic by nature, you are confident about the future. So if you have a large amount of money in the bank, you are optimistic by nature.
A>B, C>B, A> B doesnt follow the original premise.
