I believe that C is the wrong answer and that D is the correct answer.

The form of the argument is a syllogism, which is defined as the following:

an argument the conclusion of which is supported by two premises, of which one (major premise) contains the term (major term) that is the predicate of the conclusion, and the other (minor premise) contains the term (minor term) that is the subject of the conclusion; common to both premises is a term (middle term) that is excluded from the conclusion. A typical form is “All A is C; all B is A; therefore all B is C.”

Now, because D is the only answer which contains both the major and minor premises, we can safely deduce that this would be a logical candidate for the answer. To make the argument valid, we determine that if premise A is true and premise B is true, then the conclusion MUST be true.
A- Exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle
B- Yoga is a popular form of exercise
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Conclusion: Yoga is a part of a healthy lifestyle

Neither answers A,B,or C follow logically and deductively from the premises, only D.
