John: A study has identified that many soldiers received less-than-honorable discharges from the army due to charges of misconduct that can actually be attributed to conditions such as PTSD and traumatic brain injury. This is a military practice that is unfair and must be avoided. The army must take responsibility for the same and stop discharging their soldiers dishonorably.

Christy: While it is true that it is unfair to the soldiers to be discharged so from the army, it has also been found that there are no sufficient measures or systems that have been created to identify whether the misconduct was due to trauma or due to other reasons. Moreover, to enforce discipline in the ranks, it is important for the army to follow a uniform rule for all the soldiers.

Which of the following statements can Christy further add to her argument?

A. If there is no proper system, then the army should have developed a proper system by now.
B. Complete elimination of dishonorable discharges would make it more difficult for the army to monitor and evaluate the soldiers.
C. It is not the army’s fault that there has been no system developed to help those with PTSD
D. Studies have also found that showing consideration for some soldiers has led to others taking advantage, indirectly promoting misconduct.
E. There have been instances when the army has been able to identify the reasons for the misconduct and acted accordingly.

IMO D.

Christy can further add why expelling on basis of misconduct is important for the army.

+1 for D

A. Incorrect. This supports John's statement. Claiming that the army must have developed a system already, implies that the army has not done.
B. Incorrect. This option does not discuss uniformity at all and can be eliminated
C. Incorrect. This option doesn't add anything to Christy's reasoning. This only supports army
D. Correct. This supports Christy's argument by mentioning a scenario where misconduct happens if there is no uniformity in rules
E. Incorrect. This statemen partially contradicts Christy’s argument.
