Current legislation that requires designated sections for smokers and nonsmokers on the premises of privately owned businesses is an intrusion into the privately owned businesses is an intrusion into the private sector that cannot be justified. The fact that studies indicate that nonsmokers might be harmed by inhaling the smoke from others' cigarettes is not the main issue. Rather, the main issue concerns the government's violation of the right of private businesses to determine their own policies and rule.
Which one of the following is principle that, if accepted, could enable the conclusion to be properly drawn?
(A) Government intrusion into the policies and rules of private businesses
is justified only when individuals might be harmed.
(B) The right of individuals to breathe safe air supersedes the right of
businesses to be free from government intrusion.
(C) The right of businesses to self-determination overrides whatever right
or duty the government may have to protect the individual.
(D) It is the duty of private businesses to protect employees from harm in
the workplace.
(E) Where the rights of businesses and the duty of government conflict, the
main issue is finding a successful compromise.

One more for C. All the other choices do not seem to agree with the stimulus

C as well

Only C provides the necessary condition to justify the authors conclusion (the main issue concerns the government's violation of the right of private businesses to determine their own policies and rule)

(A) Government intrusion into the policies and rules of private businesses is justified only when individuals might be harmed.
- Weakens the argument

(B) The right of individuals to breathe safe air supersedes the right of
businesses to be free from government intrusion.
- Weakens the argument

(C) The right of businesses to self-determination overrides whatever right or duty the government may have to protect the individual.
- This should be the answer. The author strongly feels that private businesses should have a right to determine their own policies and rule, rather than be regulated by the government.

(D) It is the duty of private businesses to protect employees from harm in the workplace.
- Out

(E) Where the rights of businesses and the duty of government conflict, the main issue is finding a successful compromise.
- Out

C it is.

go with C.

....the main issue concerns the government's violation of the right of private businesses to determine their own policies and rule. ....

It supports that the right of businesses to self-determination overrides health matters.

C must be the answer.. concern here is the govt's intrusion into the policy making decision of the govt.......the option describing the health concerns must be overlooked...its nt the main point of the argument.

Deaer umeshpatil. I'm more than happy to help. :)

This is assumption question. First and most important is to determine the conclusion correctly. If you cannot find the conclusion, you couldn't solve the question. Next, you must find an assumption that makes the conclusion hold. Because the wording in this question is very convoluted, to understand what the question says, you should paraphrase the stimulus.

Premise: The right of an individual be protected from inhaling the smoke from others' cigarettes is not the most important. (original phrase: not the main issue). ask your self what is the most important?

Conclusion: Private business sector concludes that government's violation to the right of private business sector cannot be accepted (original phrase: cannot be justified). let ask yourself why private businesses say that government violates their right?

Assumption: Probably private businesses maintain that their right to self-determination is more important the right of individual who need to be protected from inhaling the smoke.

Now please look at C: The right of businesses to self-determination overrides whatever right or duty the government may have to protect the individual.

I bet you understand why C is correct :)

Hope it helps you a little bit.


TAKE AWAY:
For assumption questions, determine the conclusion is the most important.
