Ms. Evangeline Rose argued that the money and time invested in acquiring a professional degree are totally wasted. As evidence supporting her argument, she offered the case of a man who, at considerable expense of money and time, completed his law degree and then married and lived as a house-husband, taking care of their children and working part time at a day-care center so that his wife could pursue her career. The logical reasoning of Ms. Rose's argument is closely paralleled by which of the following?

A) A juvenile delinquent who insists that his behavior should be attributable to the fact that his parents did not love him.
B) A senator who votes large sums of money for military equipment, but who votes against programs designed to help the poor.
C) A conscientious objector who bases his draft resistance on the premise that there can be no moral wars.
D) When a policeman is found guilty of murdering his wife, an opponent of police brutality who says, -That's what these people mean by law and order.-
E) A high school senior who decides that rather than go to college he will enroll in a vocational training program to learn to be an electrician.

Please explain the reason/s why you have selected or discarded each of the options.

Ms.Rose's argument is a generalisation based on a particular instance. So search for a similar generalisation in the given choice.

Quote:
A) A juvenile delinquent who insists that his behavior should be attributable to the fact that his parents did not love him.

there is no generalisation here.
Quote:
B) A senator who votes large sums of money for military equipment, but who votes against programs designed to help the poor.

there is no generalisation here.
Quote:
C) A conscientious objector who bases his draft resistance on the premise that there can be no moral wars.

there is no generalisation here.
Quote:
D) When a policeman is found guilty of murdering his wife, an opponent of police brutality who says, -That's what these people mean by law and order.-
there is a generalisation here, people equate the law and order based on one instance or just one policeman action.
Quote:
E) A high school senior who decides that rather than go to college he will enroll in a vocational training program to learn to be an electrician.

there is no generalisation here.

Here flaw in the reasoning is that a generalization is drawn from a specific example that is very likely unrepresentative or unsuitable to represent the average instance to draw such a generalization.

We need to find the option which draws a flawed generalization on the basis of an unrepresentative sample or specific example.

D does this best as the specific policeman here is not likely to represent an average policeman and on the basis of this unrepresentative example a flawed generalization is drawn that "That's what these people(policemen) mean by law and order"
