Is it mistaking a temporal relationship as being a conditional one? Thanks in advance!!
If you would simply diagram the conditional statements in the stimulus, you would see that the flaw here is an illegal negation of the sufficient and necessary conditions. Here's how I diagrammed it:
-public access --> bay polluted
public access --> -bay polluted
The correct answer choice will be one that improperly negates the terms in a conditional statement. (C) does just that:
violent criminals in solitary --> prison violence increases
-violent criminals in solitary --> -prison violence increases
