Police Actions

GMAT-KYVEEU

A reporter noted that there was, at least, one instance of every traffic law being broken by a police officer last year. The reporter also noted that every police officer was cited for breaking a traffic law. Therefore, the reporter concluded that all police officers break all of the traffic laws.

Which of the following is the greatest flaw in the reporter's reasoning?

A

It is not possible to prove that every single officer is breaking every single driving law every single moment.

B

Tracking police cars would indicate when speeding laws are being broken, but they cannot tell when the car is answering a call or not.

C

Speeding and running red lights are acceptable for police officers to ensure public safety.

D

The driving habits of police officers who are off duty are more conservative than are the driving habits of average drivers.

E

The misuse of police vehicles during normal on-call hours would be reported by multiple drivers.
