Critic: People today place an especially high
value on respect for others; yet, in their comedy
acts, many of today’s most popular comedians
display blatant disrespect for others. But when
people fail to live up to the very ideals they hold
in highest esteem, exaggeration of such failings
often forms the basis of successful comedy. Thus
the current popularity of comedians who display
disrespect in their acts is hardly surprising.
The critic’s argument depends on which one of the
following assumptions?
(A) People who enjoy comedians who display
disrespect in their acts do not place a high value
on respect for others.
(B) Only comedians who display blatant disrespect in
their acts are currently successful.
(C) Many people disapprove of the portrayal of
blatant disrespect for others in comedy acts.
(D) People who value an ideal especially highly do
not always succeed in living up to this ideal.
(E) People today fail to live up to their own ideals
more frequently than was the case in the past.

I will go for A.

B. only is a bit extreme.
C. does not affect the comedians from being popular so much.
D. Off the topic, a general fact.
E. Now compared to past is irrelevant.
A seems a better choice then :)

I think it is D. no other option qualifies to be an assumption for this conclusion.

I went with (D)...it's soft and tender, unlike some other harder-toned answers.
