Private tutoring was found to be highly effective in improving students' achievements in a high school level calculus class. Therefore, universities and colleges that wish to improve their students' academic achievements should make private tutoring available to them.

A major flaw in the argument above is that

a, it does not provide a criterion that will determine which students will qualify for private tutoring
b, it ignores the high cost of private tutoring
c, it fails to distinguish between universities and colleges
d, what proved to be effective in a high school level calculus class may not be effective in other classes, or in academic level classes
e, it does not consider online learning as a viable option

a, it does not provide a criterion that will determine which students will qualify for private tutoring - Incorrect - Out of context

b, it ignores the high cost of private tutoring - Incorrect - Irrelevant

c, it fails to distinguish between universities and colleges - Incorrect - Out of context

d, what proved to be effective in a high school level calculus class may not be effective in other classes, or in academic level classes - Correct

e, it does not consider online learning as a viable option - Incorrect - Out of scope

Only D is a right fit here.

Clear (D) , all other options are irrelevant/out of scope.

c, it fails to distinguish between universities and colleges
d, what proved to be effective in a high school level calculus class may not be effective in other classes, or in academic level classes
e, it does not consider online learning as a viable option

Here in the Stimulus premise is "Private tutoring was found to be highly effective in improving students' achievements in a high school level calculus class"
and the conclusion is "universities and colleges that wish to improve their students' academic achievements should make private tutoring available to them"
Premise talks about High school whereas Conclusion talks about colleges and university.
Here is the gap
Here the author thinks that what is good for high schools students will good for colleges and university students.
Option D indicates this flaw
