Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

The attribution of mysterious mobile social networking app "MobileSocial" to Mark Pinkerman is regarded as tentative since it is based on the first comment posted in the app - "Mark Pinkerman created this!" Recently, several blog and media publications have emerged that named Mark Pinkerman as the creator of MobileSocial; yet, no Mark Pinkerman has actually stepped forth to claim credit for the app. Unfortunately, these blogs and media publications lend no support to the attribution of MobileSocial to Mark Pinkerman since ________.

(A)

the first comment posted misidentifies the creators of some other recent startup web sites, including Facebash and Yoogle

(B)

the author of the comment had no strong evidence on which to base the identification of Mark Pinkerman as the creator of MobileSocial

(C)

there are websites and apps that can conclusively be attributed to a Mark Pinkerman from Seattle, WA but these are not mentioned in the comment, nor does this particular Mark Pinkerman claim he created the app
(D)

the recent blogs and media publications had no source for their attribution other than the earlier first comment posted in the app

(E)

no other known comments posted identify Mark Pinkerman as the creator of MobileSocial

Hello,

I narrowed down answer choices to B and D and selected D. B is concerned with the absence of evidence provided by the author of the comment. D is more relevant with social media.

How is D better than B as an answer choice?

Cheers.

Cheers.

In finding conclusion, we always want to stick as close as possible to what is in the argument. Sometimes it might even sound like we are simply restating what is already being said in the argument.

eg: A & B are male and are siblings. A is 10 yrs old and B is 8 yrs old. Our inference from this can only be something like "A is the older brother of B."

Similarly, answer choice D, stays close to the argument. B on the other hand : we are not concerned about the reliability of the comment. Infact the argument itself suggest that it might not be reliable source to verify whether Mark Pinkerman created MobileSocial. We are only concerned about the reliability of the blogs and media publications. Choice D addresses to this. It says that the blogs and media publications themselves have their source in the unreliable comment and hence they do not provide any additional support.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.
