Some people have questioned why the Homeowners association is supporting copper's candidacy for mayor.But if the association want a mayor who will attract more businesses to the town' Cooper is the only candidate it could support. So, since the Association is supporting Cooper, it must have a goal of attracting more businesses to the town.

The reasoning in the argument is in error because

(A) the reasons the Homeowners Association should want to attract more businesses to the town are not given.
(B) the Homeowners Association could be supporting Cooper's candidacy for reasons unrelated to attracting businesses to the town.
(C) other groups besides the Homeowners Association could be supporting Cooper's candidacy.
(D) the Homeowners Association might discover that attracting more businesses to the town would not be in the best interest of its members.
(E) Cooper might not have all of the skills that are needed by a mayor who wants to attract.

Premise

Attract more businesses to town --> Support Cooper

Conclusion

Support Cooper --> they want to attract more businesses.

This mistakenly reverses the premise. i.e. "support cooper" does not necessarily mean "attract more businesses".

Which option states this? Option B.

Option A - Incorrect.
Even if the reasons were given, the argument would still be incorrect.

Option C - Incorrect
Not relevant. We are only concerned with the goals of the Homeowner's association.

Option D - Incorrect.
Not relevant. The conclusion is this Support Cooper --> they want to attract more businesses.
Other interests are not relevant.

Option E - Incorrect.
Even if he has some skills that should suffice.
In addition, even if he has no skills he could always enlist others to help attract more businesses.
