Hello, Dave!

I understand that this is a simple correlation-causal flaw question, but I was just wondering what is wrong with answer choice (E). Maybe I am overthinking but it seems like (E) makes sense, too. The author's logic goes: ice cream decrease-cheddar cheese increase, so people choose cheddar over ice cream for calcium. Isn't she/he saying that the amount of people decrease(ice cream) goes to the amount of people increase(cheddar)? Is it because of 'never' that makes this answer choice off?
Thanks in advance!

You've got it exactly; she may have assumed that people who eat cheese don't eat as much ice cream, but she doesn't need to know that they never do.
