The commissioner has announced that Judge Khalid, who was on the seven-member panel appointed to resolve the Amlec labor dispute, will have sole responsibility for resolving the Simdon labor dispute. Since in its decision the Amlec panel showed itself both reasonable and fair, the two sides in the Simdon dispute are undoubtedly justified in the confidence they have expressed in the reasonableness and fairness of the arbitrator assigned to their case.
Which one of the following contains flawed reasoning most parallel to that contained in the passage?
(A) Representing the school board, Marcia Barthes presented to the schoolâ€™s principal a list of recently elected school board members. Since only an elected member of the school board can act as its representative. Ms. Barthesâ€™s name undoubtedly appears on that list.
(B) Alan Caldalf, who likes being around young children, has decided to become a pediatrician. Since the one characteristic common to all good pediatricians is that they like young children, Mr. Caldalf will undoubtedly be a very good pediatrician.
(C) Jorge Diaz is a teacher at a music school nationally known for the excellence of its conducting faculty. Since Mr. Diaz has recently been commended for the excellence of his teaching, he is undoubtedly a member of the schoolâ€™s conducting faculty.
(D) Ula Borg, who has sold real estate for Arcande Realty for many years, undoubtedly sold fewer houses last year that she had the year before since the number of houses sold last year by Arcande Realty is far lower than the number sold the previous year.
(E) The members of the local historical society unanimously support designating the First National Bank building a historical landmark. Since Evelyn George is a member of that society, she undoubtedly favors according landmark status to the city hall as well.

excellent question... where you get such questions from??

Explanation:

here if X=>y, y=>z then X=Z, also X={x1,x2,x3......}, where all x1=x2=x3 in characterstics.....

lets look at each options.

(A) Representing the school board, Marcia Barthes presented to the schoolâ€™s principal a list of recently elected school board members. Since only an elected member of the school board can act as its representative. Ms. Barthesâ€™s name undoubtedly appears on that list.

(MB is the element of set X, which says that the one who represent school board is an elected member- same characteristic for all who represent) now follow the principal if x=>y, y=> z then x=>z, which means its correct to say that MB name will appear on that list.

(B) Alan Caldalf, who likes being around young children, has decided to become a pediatrician. Since the one characteristic common to all good pediatricians is that they like young children, Mr. Caldalf will undoubtedly be a very good pediatrician.

(Similar to A, her the common characteristic among the members is good pediatricians like young children)

(C) Jorge Diaz is a teacher at a music school nationally known for the excellence of its conducting faculty. Since Mr. Diaz has recently been commended for the excellence of his teaching, he is undoubtedly a member of the schoolâ€™s conducting faculty.

(here the common characteristic of member is music school has excellent faculty)

(D) Ula Borg, who has sold real estate for Arcande Realty for many years, undoubtedly sold fewer houses last year that she had the year before since the number of houses sold last year by Arcande Realty is far lower than the number sold the previous year.

(here common characteristic should be selling by each real estate agent in arcande sell in proportin to the arcande realty... however, the common characterstic among the members of group is not know)
(E) The members of the local historical society unanimously support designating the First National Bank building a historical landmark. Since Evelyn George is a member of that society, she undoubtedly favors according landmark status to the city hall as well.

warm regards,

Amardeep

im with D

you are associating a member of a group with a groups actions without knowing if that person impacted those actions , E is wrong because it states that everyone in the group favored landmark status which wouldnt be flawed and a reasonable conclusion
