### HideShow timer Statistics

A political candidate committed to the principal tenets of a political party may not always explain the implications of his or her party commitment to the voters in full detail. Adele Richardson, for example, is a minor-party candidate in contention for a seat on the school board. She is not likely to inform conservative voters in her district that the national leadership of her party has recently recommended that school curricula be more closely monitored by agencies of the federal government.

Which of the following is NOT assumed or implied by the passage above?

A. A political candidate is likely to be more interested in winning an election than in proselytizing the electorate.
B. The candidate of any party is likely to support the policy decisions made by the national leadership.
C. All candidates for such community positions as membership on the school board must have commitments to national parties.
D. Conservatives in Adele Richardson's district do not support federal intervention in decisions made by community school officials.
E. Voters in Adele Richardson's district are not fully aware of the policy statements made by the national leadership of her party.

For those who are looking for an explanation. Here's my try at it:

Evidence: Politicians may hide the implications of their party commitment from the voters.
Conclusion: Adele is likely to hide the plan laid out by national leadership of her party

The assumptions listed below should either support the given argument or defend it.

A. Supports. Adele may be interested in winning, therefore hiding the plan (which may hurt the voters)
B. Supports. If Adele is going to support the national party decision, she is likely to hide her intention.
C. Does not support the argument. Negate the statement. Even if some candidates are not committed to the party, they may still hide information from the voters. Hence correct.
D. Supports. If voters don't accept the plan, that is why Adele is likely to hide.
E. Supports. Clearly voters must not know about the plan in order for Adele's premise of hiding information to exist.

E Voters in Adele Richardson's district are not fully aware of the policy statements made by the national leadership of her party.

Am not sure about the difficulty level for such questions. So putting it up for vote.
