Phrasing

I think there's something off about the phrasing of answer A. Was it meant to have the word "but" in it? It seems as though that makes the answer incorrect but removing that word makes it correct. Am I just reading wrong?

Hi @andreaskormusis,

Thanks for the question! Yes, the word “but” is meant to be there. It should read that the apples are not throughly washed in the time between their harvest and reaching the cafeteria. So being washed after harvest, but before reaching the cafeteria. That doesn’t happen either. The argument does assume this.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
