21. Bank deposits are credited on the date of the transaction only when they are made before 3PM. Alicia knows that the bank deposit was made before 3PM. So, Alicia knows that the bank deposit was credited on the date of the transaction.

Which of the following exhibits both of the logical flaws exhibited by the argument above?

A) Journalists are the only ones who will be permited to ask questions at the press conference. Since Marjorie is a journalist, she will be permitted to ask questions.

B) We know that Patrice works only Thursday. Today is Thursday, so it follows that Patrice is working today.

C) It is clear that George knows he will be promoted to shift supervisor, because Goerge will be promoted to shift supervisor only if Helen resigns, and George knows Helen will resign.

D) John believes that 4 is a prime number and that 4 is divisible by 2. Hence John believes that there is a prime number divisible by 2.

E) Pat wants to become a social worker. It is well known that social workers are poorly paid. Pat apparently wants to be poorly paid. (lol)

Bets?
