In the game of basketball, scoring a three-point shot is a skill that only those with a soft-shooting touch can develop. Wilt Chamberlain, however, was a great player. So even though he did not have a soft-shooting touch, he would have excelled at scoring three-point shots.

Which one of the following contains a flaw that most closely parallels the flaw contained in the passage?

(a) Eighty percent of the freshmen at Berkeley go on to get a bachelor's degree. David is a freshman at Berkeley, so he will probably complete his studies and receive a bachelor's degree.
(b) If the police don't act immediately to quell the disturbance, it will escalate into a riot. However, since the police are understaffed, there will be a riot.
(c) The meek shall inherit the earth. Susie received an inheritance from her grandfather, so she must be meek.
(d) During the Vietnam War, the powerful had to serve along with the poor. However, Stevens' father was a federal judge, so Steven was able to get a draft deferment.
(e) All dolphins are mammals and all mammals breathe air. Therefore, all mammals that breathe air are dolphins.

Doesn't look like a GMAT question

Will go with D for this one. Both the initial argument and D are flawed, the arguments in other choices are possible
