LR Test #23 section 3 #23

I don't get it.

I limited it down to B and D and the two have identical reasoning and conclusion and flaw.

B and D both have one thing (A) that they are practicing over another (B).
B and D both have B producing greater something than A
B and D both suggest that the musician or swim team will "increase" or win "more" if spending less time on A and more on B.

Why is B more correct than D? I can't find a satisfactory answer yet.

Here's how I reasoned it out:

The argument in the stimulus is that the government should spend the most money on the program that saves the most lives. Here I reason that what we're after is more positive results (saving lives). More lives can always be saved.

In answer B the argument is to practice with the instrument that can produce the most money, because more money can always be made.

In answer D the swim team wants to practice more on what they're already good at and on what they're already winning. At a swim meet there are only so many races that will give them points for winning breaststroke matches. But this answer choice is about winning the overall swim meet. The only way for them to win more is to win through the backstroke races which will arguably give them more points than they would have solely through the breaststroke race, so they need to keep practicing the backstroke, not the breaststroke.

That's just how it made sense to me. Hope it helps!
