### HideShow timer Statistics

authorization and manipulating the data and
programs they contain is comparable to joyriding
in stolen cars; both involve breaking into private
property and treating it recklessly. Joyriding,
however, is the more dangerous crime because it
physically endangers people, whereas only
intellectual property is harmed in the case of
computer crimes.

Arjun: I disagree! For example, unauthorized use of
medical records systems in hospitals could
damage data systems on which human lives
depend, and therefore computer crimes also
cause physical harm to people.

The reasoning in Arjunâ€™s response is flawed because he
(A) fails to maintain a distinction made in Yolandaâ€™s argument
(B) denies Yolandaâ€™s conclusion without providing evidence against it
(C) relies on the actuality of a phenomenon that he has only shown to be possible
(D) mistakes something that leads to his conclusion for something that is necessary for his conclusion
(E) uses as evidence a phenomenon that is inconsistent with his own conclusion

C

quote Arjan "For example, unauthorized use of
medical records systems in hospitals COULD
damage data systems on which human lives
depend, and therefore computer crimes also
CAUSE physical harm to people"

Arjan fails to prove that this possibility is a regularity. If fact he says "computer crimes COULD cause harm, therefore they DO CAUSE harm"
