When Joe goes to see his favorite football team play, he sometimes sits without a shirt and paints his body with the team colors, and his team wins. Clearly Joe's actions lead to his team's success.

The above conclusion is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed?
A) Shirts are not required at football games.
B) The fate of a football team relies on fans explicitly showing their loyalty when attending their games.
C) Joe is a huge fan of football.
D) Joe's team has a winning record.
E) Joe should always sit with his shirt off and paint his body for his team to win.

Option A - INCORRECT.
It is untrue to base Joe's choice of not wearing a shirt to be seen as not needed in the field. This is Joe's choice and his own way of supporting his favorite team.

Option B - CORRECT.
Yes indeed, this is absolutely correct. The joy of any sportsman or sports team lies on the fans, especially when the passion is written all over the fans both in expression and otherwise. This serves like booster just as we saw on Joe's favorite team victory. They were simply amazed and motivated to win, which they did seeing the level of Joe's passion and delight in them winning.

Option C - INCORRECT.
Joe being a huge fan of football does not give a proper conclusion on the assumption. It can't be disputed that there are many huge fans football that can't come any closer as removing their shirts when there's football going on be it their favorite team playing despite having an immeasurable love for the team.

Option D - INCORRECT.
It is inappropriate to make assumption that Joe's team has a winning record. There's no winning record put upon any team that makes them undefeatable above other team. It is all about what drives them and motivations they get from fans, just as seen by Joe's love and captivating gesture.

Option E - INCORRECT.
It is likewise false to assume or implore that Joe should always remove his shirt and paint his body for his team to win, as this can still not be done and the team will still win . It's all about going out to cheer them believing that they will win.
