Insurance industry statistics demonstrate that cars with alarms or other anti-theft devices are more likely to be stolen or broken into than cars without such devices or alarms. Therefore, antitheft devices do not protect cars against thieves.

Q - The pattern of flawed reasoning in the argument above is most similar to that in which one of the following?

A. Since surveys reveal that communities with flourishing public libraries have, on average, better educated citizens, it follows that good schools are typically found in communities, with public libraries.
B. Most public libraries are obviously intended to serve the interests of the casual reader, because most public libraries contain large collections of fiction and relatively small reference collections.
C. Study reveal that people who are regular users of libraries purchase more books per year than do people who do not use libraries regularly. Hence using libraries regularly does not reduce the number of books that library patrons purchase.
D. Since youngsters who read voraciously are more likely to have defective vision than youngsters who do not read much, it follows that children who do not like to read usually have perfect vision.
E. Societies that support free public libraries are more likely to support free public universities than are societies without free public libraries. Hence, a society that wished to establish a free public university should first establish a free public library.

I think I can help here.

Basically, how I have eliminated D is that in the second sentence, children who "do not like to read" is a red flag. The option is making a huge assumption that children who do "not like to read" are the ones who do not read much. (Infact, they might be forced to read a lot.)So, OUT.

In option C,
you can see that the libraries are being attributed to a result that they might not have actually been. (Similar to that of the main argument). So, it is the preferred answer choice (C).

Hope I have helped.
Good Luck.
