16. Chiu: The belief that a person is always morally blameworthy for feeling certain emotions, such as unjustifiable anger, jealousy, or resentment, is misguided. Individuals are responsible for only what is under their control, and whether one feels such an emotion is not always under one’s control. Chiu’s conclusion follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?
(A) Individuals do not have control over their actions when they feel certain emotions.
(B) If a person is morally blameworthy for something, then that person is responsible for it.
(C) Although a person may sometimes be unjustifiably angry, jealous, or resentful, there are occasions when these emotions are appropriate.
(D) If an emotion is under a person’s control, then that person cannot hold others responsible for it.
(E) The emotions for which a person is most commonly blamed are those that are under that person’s control

Do you know the official answer and what's the source of this question?
