According to the new school district policy, only teachers that have the floors can have food in their classrooms. All of the classrooms in the new wing of the high school have tiled floors. However, most of the school's classrooms are still carpeted. Therefore, teachers who like to eat their lunches in their classrooms should be offered classrooms in the new wing of the high school.

Which of the following is an assumption that enables the conclusion above to be properly drawn?

a) Teachers in the new wing who eat their lunches in the cafeteria should keep their assigned classrooms
b) Teachers with tiled classrooms shouldn not eat in their classrooms, even though the new district policy permits them to do so.
c) Teachers with carpeted classrooms should be allowed to eat in their classrooms
d) The district policy hsould allow all teachers who want to eat in their classrooms an equal opportunity to do so, regardless of original classroom assignments.
e) The district policy should minimize potential damage to school property, such as that caused by food stains in carpet.

My answer is D becasue this assumption only justify the conclusion that classrooms in the new wing should be assigned to teachers who like to eat their lunches in their classrooms.

Cheers!

I Think It should be E ; Assuming E, one can conclude that since carpets should not be stained, so teachers who prefer eating in classrooms, should be given rooms in the new wing which is not carpeted but floored.

The answer would be D, the reasoning is on similar lines as per an earlier OG question; see the discussion here : according-to-the-new-office-smoking-regulations-only-129568.html#p1065260
.The option D acts as a premise that vouches for equality in terms that teachers having assignments on tiled or carpeted floors be equal right to have food in classrooms.

only teachers that have the floors can have food in- what is this supposed to mean :O , it would have been better if they wrote "teachers who have floored classrooms"

The conclusion :
Therefore, teachers who like to eat their lunches in their classrooms should be offered classrooms in the new wing of the high school.
Option D:
The district policy hsould allow all teachers who want to eat in their classrooms an equal opportunity to do so, regardless of original classroom assignments.

I am not able to inderstand how is option 'D' supporting the conclusion to stand as assumption.
Please explain more...
