The argument tells us that:
People disapprove -> most against tax
T not against tax
This is a flawed argument since we cannot use transposition with a particular statement, such as "most."
Let's compare it to (A) and (B)
People support logging -> most think it reduces fire risk.
A does not think it will reduce the risk
A opposes logging
This flawed reasoning pattern is identical to the stimulus.
(B) People expect an increase -> most think it is a good reason for a school
B does not expect an increase
B does not favor a new school
This is also a flawed reasoning pattern but it is clearly different from the stimulus, as it attempts to negate the antecedent instead.
