Smith: Meat in the diet is healthy, despite what some people say. After all, most doctors do eat meat, and who knows more about health than doctors do?

Which one of the following is a flaw in Smithâ€™s reasoning?

(A) attacking the opponentsâ€™ motives instead of their argument
(B) generalizing on the basis of a sample consisting of a typical cases
(C) assuming at the outset what the argument claims to establish through reasoning
(D) appealing to authority, even when different authorities give conflicting advice about an issue
(E) taking for granted that experts do not act counter to what, according to their expertise, in their best interest

I think E

The argument's reasoning assumes that Doctors always do what they preach. There is not enough evidence in the reasoning that proves so.
