The term “pit bull” does not designate a breed of dog, as do the terms “German shepherd” and “poodle.” It is like the terms “Seeing-Eye dog” and “police dog,” which designate dogs according to what they do. If you take two German shepherds and place them side by side, you cannot tell by appearance alone which is the police dog and which is the Seeing-Eye dog.
Which one of the following is the main point of the passage?
(A) German shepherds can be pit bulls.
(B) Pit bulls can be distinguished from other kinds of dogs by appearance alone.
(C) A dog is a pit bull because of what it does, not because of its breed.
(D) German shepherds can function both as police dogs and as Seeing-Eye dogs.
(E) Some breeds of dogs cannot be distinguished from other breeds of dogs by appearance alone.

Main point in passage is pitbull is not a breed but a name based on what it does.
So the answer should be C.
