The State University debating club is always looking for money to renovate their headquarters in Stockton Hall. The latest plan is to contact alumni club members from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s and ask for contributions. Other such efforts have been tried in the past, however, and club headquarters are still in poor condition.

If the author concludes that the debating club will not raise enough money to renovate their headquarters, which of the following best describes the way he supports his conclusion?

A. He bases a conclusion on an analogy.
B. He casts doubt on the reasoning ability of his opponents.
C. He points out a logical fallacy.
D. He bases a prediction on past experience.
E. He disparages the motives of his opponents.

B. He casts doubt on the reasoning ability of his opponents.
C. He points out a logical fallacy.

E. He disparages the motives of his opponents.

Inference: the debating club plans to contact old alumni to raise funds for renovating headquarters. They've done this earlier and yet the building is in poor condition.

Now, if author concludes that they wont raise enough money, what is he basing that assumption on?

If you observe the boldface, it's pretty evident that the author is making the claim based on his past experience. Hence, option D is the correct answer.
