The average size of marine life that washes up on the shore of the Japanese island Ryukyu is smaller than the average size that washes up on the Western coast of Australia. Giant squid have recently been found washed up on the shores of Ryukyu as well as the Western coast of Australia. It can be concluded that the average size of the giant squids on the shore Ryukyu must be less than that of giant squids washed up on the shores of Western Australia.

The argument above can be attacked on the grounds that it does which of the following?

A It fails to distinguish between giant squids and more diminutive variants.
B It assumes that a general pattern is likely to hold true in a specific case.
C It discounts the possibility that the largest giant squid was found on the shores of Ryukyu.
D It mistakenly asserts that one instance holds true for all cases.
E It does not discuss the size of the giant squid compared to other squids.

B nd D are the contenders but D is a little slight off.

What we do have in the argument is a generalization of a specific case..

B is the winner.
