Hoping to continue these financial trends, the company plans to replace all older buses with new, larger buses, including some double-decker buses,.
The plan of the bus company as described above assumes all of the following EXCEPT
(A) the demand for bus service in the company’s area of service will increase in the future
(B) increased efficiency and revenues will compensate for any new expenses the company incurs
(C) the new buses will be sufficiently reliable to ensure the company a net financial gain once they are in place

agree with D. It is the only choice that cannot be assumed from the passage. A,B,C,E all have implications on the cost factor mentioned in the arguement.

It can not be E, The assumption has to be true for the argument to survive. If you negate it, the argument falls apart.

Negate this :

the larger, double-decker buses will (not) face obstacles such as height and weight restrictions in the bus company’s area of service.

Now the argument fails to stand.

Negate D
driving the new buses will (not) be no more difficult than driving the buses they are to replace

nothing happens to the argument. So, D is the choice since this can not be the assumption.

If the new double deckers cannot operate due to restrictions on height limit, then instead of generating profis, these double deckers will simply sit in the depot and represent a loss in terms of financial figures.
