Jockey: Horses are the most noble of all animals. They are both loyal and brave. I knew of a farm horse which died of a broken heart shortly after its owner died.
Veterinarian: You're wrong. Dogs can be just as loyal abnd brave. I had a dog who would wait in the front steps for me to come home and if I did not arrive until midnight, he would still be there.

All of the following are true of the claims of the jockey and veterinarian EXCEPT

(A) both claims assume that loyalty and bravery are characteristics which are desirable in animals
(B) both claims assume that the two most loyal animals are the horse and the dog
(C) both claims assume that human qualities can be attributed to animals
(D) both claims are supported by only a single example of animal behavior
(E) neither claim is supported by evidence other than the opinions and observations of the speakers

I think the ans is C. No one had talked about the human qualities in their arguments.

why C is incorrect ? Bunuel
As its nowhere defined that loyalty and braveness is human quality, do we need to assume it .

I think B is correct. First jockey claims that "Horses are the most noble of all animals" and veterinarian respond with another one claim which refutes the first claim. Veterinarian states "Dogs can be just as loyal and brave". That means horses are not the noble of all animals, dogs are just as noble. So they have a different view on that.

C is incorrect because loyalty and bravery are human attributes. In both of the claims, both veterinarian and jockey used those attributes for animals which makes the claim true.

Hope that helps.
