Crimes in which handguns are used are more likely than other crimes to result in fatalities. However, the ma-jority of crimes in which handguns are used do not result in fatalities. Therefore, there is no need to enact laws that address crimes involving handguns as distinct from other crimes.

The pattern of flawed reasoning displayed in the argument above most closely resembles that in which one of the following?

(A) Overweight people are at higher risk of developing heart disease than other people. However, more than half of all overweight people never develop heart disease. Hence it is unnecessary for physicians to be more careful to emphasize the danger of heart disease to their overweight patients than to their other patients.
(B) Many people swim daily in order to stay physically fit. Yet people who swim daily increase their risk of de-veloping ear infections. Hence people who want to remain in good health are better off not following fitness programs that include swimming daily.
(C) Most physicians recommend a balanced diet for those who want to remain in good health. Yet many people find that nontraditional dietary regiments such as extended fasting do their health no serious harm. Therefore, there is no need for everyone to avoid nontraditional dietary regiments.
(D) Food rich in cholesterol and fat pose a serious health threat to most people. However, many people are re-luctant to give up eating foods that they greatly enjoy. Therefore, people who refuse to give up rich foods need to spend more time exercising than do other people.
(E) Many serious health problems are the result of dietary disorders. Yet these disorders are often brought about by psychological factors. Hence people suffering from serious health problems should undergo psychological evaluation.

IMO (A) is best,

All the other options do not represent the same kind of flaw.

Will be surprised if I'm wrong
