First off, the most helpful indicator is that the stimulus is a "good argument."
If you switch the stimulus around in an order you're more likely familar with, it reads like the following: No good things ever cause harm. Wealth often causes harm; therefore, wealth is not a good thing. As you can tell reading it that way, that's a good argument.
If you switch answer choice "D" around, it reads like this: Most dachsounds hunt poorly. Sarah's dog hunts very well; therefore Sarah's dog is not a daschound. This is obviously a bad argument because Sarah's dog could be one of the few dachsounds that does not hunt poorly or even one that hunts very very well.
