Lito: The island of Kauai features a number of one-lane bridges that are potentially very dangerous. Kauai has recently seen a rise in the number of tourists visiting the island, and most tourists are not familiar with navigating the one-lane bridges. Over the last year, the number of car accidents has increased, and most of these accidents have occurred at the one-lane bridges. These bridges need to be widened to accommodate tourists and prevent future accidents.

Miteki: Kauai has a traditional commitment to environmental integrity. The one-lane bridges were installed to minimize the impact on the island environment. To widen the one-lane bridges could have a dangerous effect on the native plant and animal life.

As a response to Lito's argument, Miteki's comment is flawed because she


A. relies on faulty information to support her argument

B. uses circular reasoning to make her main points

C. focuses on a minor issue instead of a more important one

D. responds to a supporting point instead of a main point

E. fails to address the substance of Lito's claim by making a secondary argument

I think it is B.

M is under the assumption that his/her premise is true. So the conclusion is also true.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

It should be E
as Metaki is not refuting the argument by Lito. He is trying to bring another argument not relevant to Lito

+1 for E. L talks about one lane bridge in K being dangerous and accidents that happen. M talks about K's commitment to environment

Option E seems relevant here as Miteki seems slightly deviated from Lito's point in addressing other information .
