In cases like this one, look to see which claim is the premise and which is the conclusion. The author who says "X is true, therefore Y is true" is saying that X, the premise, is sufficient for Y, the conclusion.

Jeff's premises is that all mammals feel pain. His conclusion is that experiments should be banned. Therefore, he is claiming that pain is sufficient and a ban is necessary.

Answer C gets that backwards, treating a ban as sufficient and pain as necessary.

Perhaps that approach, one of Premise :arrow: Conclusion, will help you avoid these problems in the future? Good luck, keep at it!
