### HideShow timer Statistics

Lito: The island of Kauai features a number of one-lane bridges that are potentially very dangerous. Kauai has recently seen a rise in the number of tourists visiting the island, and most tourists are not familiar with navigating the one-lane bridges. Over the last year, the number of car accidents has increased, and most of these accidents have occurred at the one-lane bridges. These bridges need to be widened to accommodate tourists and prevent future accidents.

Miteki: Kauai has a traditional commitment to environmental integrity. The one-lane bridges were installed to minimize the impact on the island environment. To widen the one-lane bridges could have a dangerous effect on the native plant and animal life.

As a response to Lito's argument, Miteki's comment is flawed because she

A.relies on faulty information to support her argument

B.uses circular reasoning to make her main points

C.focuses on a minor issue instead of a more important one

D.responds to a supporting point instead of a main point

E.fails to address the substance of Lito's claim by making a secondary argument

I think it is B.

M is under the assumption that his/her premise is true. So the conclusion is also true.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

It should be E
as Metaki is not refuting the argument by Lito. He is trying to bring another argument not relevant to Lito

+1 for E. L talks about one lane bridge in K being dangerous and accidents that happen. M talks about K's commitment to environment

Option E seems relevant here as Miteki seems slightly deviated from Lito's point in addressing other information .
