Hi Jing Jing,

We are asked to find the flaw in the dean's argument. The student rep argues that the university was wrong to punish a student for speaking his mind. The dean replies by claiming that the rep believes the school should endorse verbal harassment.

However, the representative makes no such claim, and the dean is therefore misrepresenting the argument made by the rep.

This understanding of the flaw is a good match for answer choice C.
