Joshi is clearly letting campaign contributions influence his vote in city council. His campaign for re-election has received more financial support from property developers than any other city councilors has. And more than any other councilor's, his voting record favors the interests of property developers.

The reasoning in the argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that the argument


(A) takes for granted that because certain events occurred sequentially, the earlier events caused the later events

(B) confuses one thing's being necessary for another to occur with its being sufficient to make it occur

(C) makes a moral judgment when only a factual judgment can be justified

(D) presumes that one thing is the cause of another when it could easily be an effect of it

(E) has a conclusion that is simply a restatement of one of the argument's stated premises

This one is easy. D should be the answer. its a weaken question. it may be possible that he is in the campaign because of a support from those developers.
