### HideShow timer Statistics

Letter to the editor: Your newspaper's advertisement claims that you provide coverage of the high school's most popular sports. Clearly, this is false advertising. Of the school's students, 15 percent compete on the track team, while only 5 percent of the students play basketball. Hence, the track is far more popular than basketball, yet track gets no coverage and basketball gets full-page coverage.

The reasoning in the letter to the editor is most vulnerable to the criticism that it

A. infers a cause from a mere correlation

B. bases its conclusion on a sample that is too small

C. misinterprets a keyword in the newspaper's advertisement

D. employs as a premise the contention it purports to show

E. criticizes the source of a claim rather than the claim itself

Keyword is " Most popular sports".
So author of the letter misinterprets that the news covers The Most Popular sport.

Hence C

Clear C
Most popular does not mean the one that has maximum participation.
