Answer:

D). My mom should be excited about me getting on a reality show because I’m now going to be on a reality show.

Explanation:

Faulty logic or 'flaw in reasoning' is demonstrated as the use of illogical, obscure, or invalid claims in an arguments that leads to influence the efficacy of the sentence. This may turn the argument deceptive and affect the credibility of the claim and the author as well. However, such flaws or errors are deliberately committed by the authors to emphasize a particular point or it is mere a mistake due to lack of attention or ignorance.

In the given question, option D exemplifies a faulty logic as the reason 'because I'm now going to be on a reality show' reflects that error or flaw in logic that functions to invalidate or disprove the previous meaning/claim of the sentence too. This makes the meaning deceptive and irrational to the readers . Thus, option D is the correct answer.

D) My mom should be excited about me getting on a reality show because I’m now going to be on a reality show.
