16. The current proposal to give college students a broader choice in planning their own courses of study should be abandoned. The students who are supporting the proposal will never be satisfied, no matter what requirements are established. Some of these students have reached their third year without declaring a major. One first-year student has failed to complete four required courses. Several others have indicated a serious indifference to grades and intellectual achievement.

A flaw in the argument is that it does which one of the following?

(A) avoids the issue by focusing on supporters of the proposal
(B) argues circularly by assuming the conclusion is true in stating the premises
(C) fails to define the critical term â€œsatisfiedâ€

E is the only one that sounds right. not sure what B means though.

it's (A) for me. the focus seems to be on samples that support the conclusion. how about others?

I take (B). The author assumed that the conclusion must be true since the premises are facts (numbers are real). This is clearly a flaw, since the author can't translate those premise into a fit-all conclusion.
