Which of the following, if true, most validates the argument?

A. A survey of college administrators found that many believe faculty/student dating is morally wrong....
Survey of college adminstrators is out of scope

B. College professors should behave in an ethical manner........correct option......college professors should behave in an ethical manner.

C. Professors are forbidden from dating students at many universities......"many universities" is wrong...the argument is in general

D. Some professors who date students have had prior ethical complaints made against them for such behavior.......prior ethical complaint s not associated with the argument.

E. Professors who date students may be in danger of losing their positions if the relationship is discovered......irrelevant

+1 for B

IMO B.

Premise:
It is unethical for a college professor to pursue a romantic relationship with a student, even if the student is at the age of legal consent.
Conclusion:
Therefore, no college professor should ever initiate such a relationship with a student.

Logical gap: College professor should not be unethical.

Option B clearly fills this logical gap and hence is the correct answer.
(Hidden)Premise:
College professors should behave in an ethical manner.
Premise:
It is unethical for a college professor to pursue a romantic relationship with a student, even if the student is at the age of legal consent.
Conclusion:
Therefore, no college professor should ever initiate such a relationship with a student.
