PT 19, Sec 2, #1

I know the answer is A because of the differences in using the word "exploit."

But what makes C wrong exactly? It sounds somewhat similar to A.

I can see how C tripped you up. But, it's not saying that a word was used in two ways within the same argument. It's saying that a word was defined oddly by using an atypical example. For example, imagine an argument discussed someone patronizing someone else, using the word patronize to mean to go to their store by pointing out someone stating "I'll patronize you by buying your bakery's goods!" It's not what we usually mean when we say that phrase/word.

That clear it up?
