Counter-premise: Crab fishing is not considered a sport by many laypeople.

Premise: But because crab cages are extremely heavy, crab fishermen must be very strong to do their work.

Conclusion: For this reason, crab fishing is a sport.

Which of the following is an assumption that supports drawing the conclusion above for from the reason given for that conclusion?

A) If an activity is a sport then it requires strength. Backward logic

B) Crab fishing requires more strength than other types of fishing. We don’t know that.

C) Crab fishermen have to do outside exercise to maintain their ability to fish. Off-topic

D) Crab fishermen consider crab fishing a sport. Could be true or not. Don’t know. Most important, it doesn’t have to be true for the conclusion to hold.

E) If an activity requires strength then it is a sport. This is an assumption that must be true, otherwise the conclusion doesn't hold. It fact it is the sole basis supporting the conclusion.

Answer: (E)
