    No cause a hasty generalization is drawing a conclusion based on a small sample size, rather than looking at statistics that are much more in line with the typical or average situation.

    And ad hominem is (of an argument or reaction) directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining.

    Which this one did, it didn't have statistics it just said that you would believe all you need to be happy is to have pastries.

    But the second part of the sentence draws to the D) since it says it's more directed to say that the Streusels don't have heads on their shoulders and it just sounds more targeted against them than their actual argument...can you see that?
