It is not correct on the part of the district administration to ban the sport of drag racing. After all, only 50 people have been injured in the last one year while drag racing whereas more than 400 people have been injured while playing baseball. The administration should, thus, ban baseball instead.
The argument above is flawed because:
(A) It compares two different types of sports.
(B) It does not take into account the treatment cost of the injuries.
(C) It fails to take into account the total number of people who drag race and the total number of people who play baseball.
(D) It does not take into account injuries caused in other sports such as boxing.
(E) It uses inaccurate data to support its conclusion.
