The Supreme Court’s recent decision is unfair. It treats non-resident aliens as a special group when it denies them some rights ordinary citizens have. This treatment is discriminatory, and we all know that discrimination is unfair.

Which of the following arguments is most nearly similar in its reasoning to the above argument?

(A) Doing good would be our highest duty under the moral law, and that duty would be irrational unless we had the ability to discharge it; but since a finite creature could never discharge that duty in his lifetime, we must conclude that if there is moral law, the soul is immortal.
(B) Required core courses are a good idea because students just entering college do not have as good an idea about what constitutes a good education as do the professional educators; therefore, students should not be left complete freedom to select coursework.
(C) This country is the most free nation on earth largely as a result of the fact that the founding fathers had the foresight to include a Bill of Rights in the Constitution.
(D) Whiskey and beer do not mix well; every evening that I have drunk both whiskey and beer together, the following morning I have had a hangover.
(E) I know that this is a beautiful painting because Picasso created only beautiful works of art, and this painting was done by Picasso.

Believe answer to be be option E

The author in the question above, applies a general idea of discrimination being unfair to a specific situation regarding the Supreme court decision.

Option E is also similar. It applies a generic statement that"Picasso creates beautiful art work" to a specific painting, because the author believes that this painting was done by Picasso and does not give any further reason, as to why this painting is beautiful.

all discrimination -> unfair

but unfair decisions need not be discrimination.
The reasoning used in the argument is mistaken reversal

Only E, has the mistaken reversal.

Picasso painted -> beautiful arts
Beautiful arts -> not necessarily created by Picasso.

but E says, Beautiful -> Picasso created (mistaken reversal)
