Susan: Those who oppose experimentation on animals do not properly value the preservation of human life. Although animal suffering is unfortunate, it is justifiable if it can lead to cures for human ailments.
Melvin: But much animal experimentation involves testing of ordinary consumer products such as soaps, dyes, and cosmetics.
Susan: These experiments are justifiable on the same grounds, since cleanliness, convenience, and beauty are worthwhile human values deserving of support.
Which of the following is the best statement of the logical flaw in Susanâ€™s argument?
(A) Her claim that animal experimentation is justifiable if it supports human values contradicts her claim that such experimentation is justifiable only if it leads to cures for human ailments.
(B) She places a higher value on human cleanliness, convenience, and beauty than she does on the preservation of animal life.
(C) She uses the word â€œvalueâ€

I choose C because initially Susan said that we can experiment on animals because it can cure diseases (so it's valuable for human being) and in the second she add to this value cleanliness etc, while before she said about another value, so she confuses two different values.

In the first part of Susan's argument she states that people who oppose experimentation on animals do not value preservation of human life. So this means that the experimentation on animals must preserve human life.

In ther second part she responds to M's question by saying that using cosmetics helps support human values. She has not made any attempt to link parts 1 and 2..so E which states that she fails to explain how supporting human values to preservation of human life looks like the best answer.

Do have an OE for this. I feel like E is a little outside the scope of this argument.

What you said about "values" is right. But can that usage be a logical flaw?
