Relationship specialists contend that how much a couple fights is a viable indicator of the strength of a relationship. Couples that fight more tend to stay together for shorter periods of time. Therefore, a couple that typically fights for two or more hours is likely to break up.

Which of the following indicates a flaw in the reasoning above?
A. How much a couple fights is not the same as how long a couple fights.
B. Some couples that fight a lot have long relationships.
C. It is possible for a couple to fight for more than two hours and not break up.
D. The phrase “viable indicator” does not indicate how likely a couple is to break up.
E. Frequency of fighting is only one gauge of a relationship’s strength.

Relationship specialists say : More Fighting means shorter periods of togetherness.

Conclusion: Fighting for 2+ hours is likely to break up.

So, the argument has assumed that more fighting could refer to the duration of fight rather than the occurrences of fight.

A. How much a couple fights is not the same as how long a couple fights. Inline with our Assumption. Hence, correct.
B. Some couples that fight a lot have long relationships. Some couples?? What is some?? One couple, two couple or what? What about the others?
C. It is possible for a couple to fight for more than two hours and not break up. Ok. It is possible. So what?? I didn't say all couples are going to break up. I said likelihood. So, may be this couple doesn't fall into that likelihood.
D. The phrase “viable indicator” does not indicate how likely a couple is to break up. Irrelevant. I am not concerned about what does it mean
E. Frequency of fighting is only one gauge of a relationship’s strength. ok. But still it is not saying anything about 2 hours of duration. Incorrect
