Could someone please help me to identify what type of misrepresentation or misuse have demonstrated by the statement below. Here are choices only one of them connects with this statement: Which one?

“…male children born to women who smoke during pregnancy run a risk of violent and criminal behavior that lasts well into adulthood.” Can we infer that smoking during pregnancy is responsible for criminal behavior in people? (I am not sure which misrepresentation or misuses connect with this statement. I think it might be Implied Connection, I am not sure) I need some advice.
