Private ownership of services traditionally considered to be the responsibility of the government will typically improve those services. The turnpike system in the United States of the nineteenth century demonstrates the truth of this principle; the system, which had previously been controlled by the government, became a more reliable system when taken over by private organizations.

Which of the following describes a significant flaw in the author's argument above?

(B) The author distorts an opposing view in trying to show its weaknesses.
(C) The author defends what the author perceives as a wrong action by pointing out another perceived wrong action.
(D) The author generalizes from a sample not representative enough to establish the conclusion.
(E) The author attributes two very different meanings to the same word.
