@efurr530,

Let's look at (D).

(D) says, "It confuses a condition that is necessary for establishing
the truth of the conclusion with a condition that is sufficient for
establishing the truth of the conclusion."

The problem with (D) is that there is not any conditional logic
contained within the stimulus, so there are no sufficient or necessary
conditions. Thus, (D) is out, as the stimulus just shows a correlation
between two things.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions!
