Whittaker: There can be no such thing as the number of medical school students who drop out before their second year, because if they drop out, they never have a second year.
Hudson: By your reasoning I cannot help but become rich, because there is similarly no such thing as my dying before my first million dollars is in the bank.
Hudson responds to Whittaker by

(A) showing that a relevantly analogous argument leads to an untenable conclusion
(B) citing a specific example to counter Whittakerâ€™s general claim
(C) pointing out that Whittaker mistakes a necessary situation for a possible situation
(D) claiming that what Whittaker says cannot be true because Whittaker acts as if it were false
(E) showing that Whittakerâ€™s argument relies on analyzing an extreme and unrepresentative case

Well, answer choice are bit simple to come to conclusion that A is the answer (Off course it's OA). But can someone shed light on argument as such!

A for me too. Hudson uses the same argument as used by Whitaker to come up with a illogical conclusion

yup "A" is a straightforward choice ..
B) He's not countering him ..no where he says I disagree or what.
C) He doesn't point out any mistake..he's just citing another example.
D) He's not saying whether Whittaker's claim ir true or false
E) He's not explaining anything to him ..
Just stay inside the scope and don't presume anything beforehand ..
He's just citing an analogus situation and the result it wud generate ..
Thus "A"
