Select the answer choice that correctly provides the missing premise:

_________________________________________.
Darlene is an automobile driver who breached the duty of care.
Darlene was negligent.
  1. All automobile drivers who breach the duty of care owed to others are negligent.
  2. All automobile drivers breach the duty of care to others.
  3. All automobile drivers owe a duty of care to others.
  4. All automobile drivers named Darlene are negligent.
Explanation
Answer: A - All automobile drivers who breach the duty of care owed to others are negligent. To draw the conclusion that Darlene was negligent, the major premise must establish a connection between automobile drivers who breach the duty of care and negligence. Only answer A makes that connection by establishing that all automobile drivers are negligent if they breach the duty of care owed to others. Since Darlene is within the class of drivers who breached the duty of care (the minor premise), the conclusion can be reached. Answer B and Answer C are both incorrect because they do not establish a connection to negligence. Answer D is incorrect because the minor premise would not be necessary for the conclusion.
