    One of the fastest­-growing beauty treatments in Britain, fish pedicures ­ where tiny toothless fish called garra rufa smooth feet by eating dead skin-­ has come under scrutiny from animal rights campaigners. One campaigner said, ‘Fish are covered by the Animal Welfare Act. They need a stable environment and clean water, uncontaminated by perfume or lotions.’ A spa in London’s West End was closed recently by the local council when many of the fish in its pedicure pool died. There should be a complete ban on this type of pedicure, or else there will soon be no garra rufa.

    Which one of the following is the best statement of the flaw in the above argument?

    A. Beauty spas which offer fish pedicures are not especially numerous at present.

    B. It would be less harmful if people washed their feet before using the spa.

    C. Fish in the wild are likely to die if their environment changes.

    D. The death of the fish in the London spa may not be a typical occurrence.

    E. The public does not immediately associate fish with the Animal Welfare Act.
