The OA is B.

Apologies as there is a typo. The qn should exclude the word "few".

"Commissioner: Budget forecasters project revenue shortfall of a billion dollars in coming fiscal yr. Since there is no feasible way to increase available funds, our only choice is to decrease expenditures. The plan before you outlines feasible cuts that would yield savings of a billion dollars over coming fiscal yr. We will be able to solve problem, therefore, only if we adopt the plan.

Reasoning in argument is flawed because it:
(a) relies on information that is far from certain
(b) confuses being an adequate solution with being a required solution
(c) inappropriately relies on opinion of experts
(d) inappropriately employs language that is vague
(e) takes for granted that there is no wat to increase available funds"

gandy_achar brought out an interesting pt in that the commissioner implied that no other cost cutting measure would succeed besides his plan. This appears to be the flaw.
