A pulralist society takes into account the claims of recognized groups, with their conflicting interests, and attempts to mediate between them. But no group that is not sufficiently well organized to be recognized can make its claims count for anything at all. Its advocates will be treated as extremists of foreign agents. Thus the net effect of government action taken along pularalist principles will be to_________________.

A) strike the best possible compromises
B) suppress the freedom of speech
C) give everyone part of what he or she claims
D) reinforce existing social structures
E) resolve conflicts of interest

please explain your answer

I would go with D on this one
A) there is no such compromise that can be reached unrecognized groups
B) way too drastic
C) nothing is given to unrecognized groups
D) properly distinguishes between recognized group vs unrecognized group by calling recognized groups "existing social structures". Unrecognized groups are perceived as unexistant and thus will not benefit from any government reinforcement
E) again, there will be no conflict of interest resolved with unrecognized groups

Thanks for your explanations, Paul.
However, I think A is correct because "society .. attempts to mediate.."
In B net effect will be "to resolve the conflict", what, IMO, is too extreme.

P.S. Waiting for an official answer and would appreciate if somebody tells where does this Q come from. (2-d sentence looks somewhat awkward to me.)

Serge, will society mediate with unrecognized groups labeled as "terrorists"? If A is true, as you claim, then pluralists do negotiate and strike compromises with those "terrorists"?

Although you are probably right and correct answer is D, I will try to stick to A.
I just thought that "to reinforce X" (X in our case are existing soc. structures) is the action not necessarily following "not dealing" with Y (terrorists).
That is an indirect, though plausible, inference.
So I assumed that "strike the best compromise" is about "recognized groups" mentioned in 1-st sentence.

Do we know the source and OA?

A pulralist society gets recognized groups, with differences and strikes a balance.
The above statement defines a pluralist society
But (the big but)
un-recognized groups are terroists

The above statements says simply, not-organized you are out.

Conclusion
Thus the net effect of government action taken along pularalist principles will be to reinforce existing structures

I will go with- D.
