Hello,

What type of flaw would the answer (e) be considered?

Thanks!

Hi Kat,

The author makes an unwarranted assumption that just because the vote was close that it means there was a sharp division. It's not really a traditional "named" flaw like a source Argument or Mistaken Reversal, but instead part of a very broad category where the author makes a leap that's not justified.

Thanks!
