The average normal infant born in the United States weighs between 12 and 14 pounds at the age of three months. Therefore, if a three-month-old child weighs only 10 pounds, its weight gain has been below the United States average.

Which of the following indicates a flaw in the reasoning above?

  • A Weight is only one measure of normal infant development.
  • B Some three-month-old children weigh as much as 17 pounds.
  • C It is possible for a normal child to weigh 10 pounds at birth.
  • D The phrase "below average" does not necessarily mean insufficient.
  • E Average weight gain is not the same as average weight.
