In addition,as a result of a new formula, the use of Fresh Start results in whiter, healthier-looking teeth. Clearly, Fresh Start not only gives your teeth a beautiful look but also provides the most reliable protection against dental cavities.

Which of the following is an assumption in the argument above?
(A) No other toothpaste provides more reliable protection against dental cavities.
(B) Fresh Start's formula does a better job of whitening teeth than do competitor's formulas.
(C) People are just as interested in having beautiful teeth as they are in having healthy teeth.
(D) Fresh Start also prevents other dental disorders, such as gingivitis.
(E) Reliable protection against dental cavities, combined with excellent aesthetic properties, is likely to make Fresh Start a popular toothpaste on the market.

As quoted previously ,

P1: Fresh start --- Tooth paste --- reduces risk of DC by 20%

P2: Makes teeth whiter + healthier

C: Gives Beauty +Protection

Hence , A
