The stimulus makes a whole to part flaw. MacNeil assumes merely because the collection as a whole is the most valuable, he cannot afford any ONE of the works. Just because a whole has a characteristic does not necessarily mean that each of its parts also has that characteristic.

Answer choice (B) states that the city council voted UNANIMOUSLY, meaning the city council voted fully in agreement. Therefore, it is valid to state that any of the councilpersons, Martinez included, voted to adopt the plan.

However, answer choice (C) follows the stimulus in having a whole to part flaw. Just because the entirety of the paragraph is long does not necessarily mean that every sentence that comprises it is also long.

Hope that was helpful! Please let us know if you have any more questions.
