Rats are generally more active than mice. But since gerbils are generally more active than hamsters, it follows that rats are generally more active than hamsters.

Any of the following, if introduced into the argument as an additional premise, makes the argument above logically correct EXCEPT:

A. Gerbils are generally more active than rats
B. Mice are generally more active than hamsters
C. Mice are generally more active than gerbils
D. Mice and gerbils are generally equally active
E. Rats and gerbils are generally equally active

Gayathri, can you please further explain how to tackle this kind of questions? I generally have a problem understanding how to attack this problem even after reading it from the OG and seeing the OA.
