Just as a bicycle chain may be too tight, so may one┬б┬пs carefulness and conscientiousness be so tense as to hinder the running of one┬б┬пs mind.

Which one of the following most closely parallels the reasoning used in the argument above?

(A) Just as a clock may be wound too tightly, so may one┬б┬пs time be spent fruitlessly in the pursuit of perfection

(B) Just as a carousel may spin too quickly, so may one┬б┬пs rapid concentration on several problems prevent a resolution of difficulties.

(C) Just as a machine may be oiled too much, so may one┬б┬пs heavy drinking of alcoholic beverages lead to complete dissipation

(D) Just as a raging river may be frozen into stillness during the winter, so may one┬б┬пs career falter at certain times of the year

(E) Just as a boxer may become too tense before a big fight, so may one┬б┬пs personal concerns stand in the way of professional success

Original statement:
Just as <X> may be too <+ve mood>, so may <Y> be too <+ve mood> as to <reduce/stop/-ve> <Z>

in B:
<X> = carousel
<+ve mood> = spin too quickly
<Y> = concentration
<+ve mood> = rapid
<reduce/stop/-ve> = prevent
<Z> = resolution of difficulties

Any other?
