Political advertisement: Sherwood campaigns as an opponent of higher taxes. But is anybody fooled? For the last 10 years, while Sherwood served on the city council, the council consistently increased taxes year after year. Break the cycle ofhigher and higher taxes: reject Sherwood's bid for reelection to city council.

The argument in the political advertisement is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that it

(A) bases a crucial generalization on a very limited sample

(B) fails to consider the possibility that something that is unavoidable might nonetheless be undesirable

(C) mistakes something that is sufficient to bring about a result for something that is necessary to bring about that result

(D) makes a personal attack on someone who holds a certain view rather than addressing the reasonableness of that view

(E) takes for granted that a characteristic of a group as a whole is shared by an individual member of that group

Is this an LSAT CR?

The premise would be pretty straightforward if you consider the fact that a law is passed by an assembly & not an individual. Hence, E seems to be the only viable option. Having said that, the question stem does not specify if Sherwood has the veto power to pass the law or not. I would personally not expect a question like this to come in GMAT.
