"Illogical Reasoning"-a sample LSAT question...well, sort of...

If I am a good girl, I do what I am required to do to become successful.In order to become successful, you must study hard for the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test). I am a good girl. Therefore, I am studying hard for the LSAT.

Which author's line of reasoning is NOT flawed?

a.) The author has assumed without additional support that she is a good girl.
b.) The author has forgotten that studying hard for the LSAT with a very annoying beagle,
named Winston, yapping in the background is nearly impossible.
c.) The author has unnecessarily assumed that LSAT scores equate with success.
d.) The author is incapable of making any sense when her nerves are fried that
SHE IS READY TO GET THIS DARN LSAT OVER WITH SO SHE CAN STOP DREAMING ABOUT WORTHLESS TESTS AND WRITING SAMPLE QUESTIONS!
