The only songs Amanda has ever written are blues songs and punk rock songs. Most punk rock songs involve no more than three chords. So if the next song Amanda writes is not a blues song, it probably will not involve more than three chords.

The reasoning in which one of the following arguments is most similar to that in the argument above?

(A) The only pets the Gupta family has ever owned are fish and parrots. Most parrots are very noisy. So if the next pet the Gupta family owns is a parrot, it will probably be very noisy.

(B) Most parrots are very noisy. The Gupta family has never owned any pets other than fish and parrots. So if the Gupta family has ever owned a noisy pet, it was probably a parrot.

(C) All the pets the Gupta family has ever owned have been fish and parrots. Most parrots are very noisy. So any pet the Gupta family ever owns that is not a fish will probably be very noisy.

(D) Every pet the Gupta family has ever owned has been a fish or a parrot. Most parrots are very noisy. So if the next pet the Gupta family owns is not a parrot, it will probably not be very noisy.

(E) The Gupta family has never owned any pets other than fish and parrots. Most parrots are very noisy. So the next pet the Gupta family owns will probably be very noisy if it is not a fish.

A.This has the wrong structure. It should have said “If the next is not A”.
1. All have been either A or B
2. B is usually Y.
3. If the next is B, it will probably be Y.

B.This has the wrong structure. It should have said “if not A, probably Y”.
1. All have been either A or B
2. B is usually Y.
3. If Y, probably B.

C. This is close, but it’s not quite the same. E is better. This doesn’t say “the next”. Instead, it’s talking about all pets.
1. All have been either A or B
2. B is usually Y.
3. Any that is not A will probably Y.

D. This has the wrong structure.
1. All have been either A or B
2. B is usually Y.
3. If next is not B, probably not Y.

E. CORRECT. This matches exactly.
1. Either A or B.
2. B is usually Y.
3. If next one is not A, it will probably be Y.
