Patty: Tubeless tyres have low probability of bursting at high car speeds. This can prevent hundreds of accidents from happening. I want the state transport department to mandate tubeless tyres for all cars.

Rudy: I don't completely agree with your request. After all, cars are only a certain percentage of all the vehicles in the state and commercial vehicles such as trucks contribute to larger numbers of accidents that cars do.

Which of the following suggests the fundermental weakness in Rudy's reasoning?

A. She compares accidents by one type of vehicles with accidents by all other types.
B. She fails to back her claims with clear, relevant data.
C. She only compares the number of accidents and ignores the severity of the accidents.
D. She assumes that Patty is advocating tubeless tyres strictly for cars only.
E. She rejects a potential solution for part of a problem on grounds that it doesn't solve the entire problem.

E for me.
Rudy sees the problem correctly but underestimates the positive impact that the plan of Patty will account for toward solving the problem as a whole.
