Economic considerations color every aspect of international dealings, and nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealings with the borrower. That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be world leader.
The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?
(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain
to be a world leader.
(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that
nation cannot be a world leader.
(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that
other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.

1) Economic considerations color every aspect of international dealing
2) Nations are just like individuals in that the lender sets the terms of its dealing with the borrower
3) That is why a nation that owes money to another nation cannot be a world leader <-- conclusion

nation owe money ---> cannot be world leader
can be world leader ---> does not owe money

Conclusion is true only if a nation is a world leader when it does not owe money to any other nation. We need an assumption along this line of reasoning.

The reasoning in the passage assumes which one of the following?

(A) A nation that does not lend to any other nation cannot be a world leader.
- Out

(B) A nation that can set the terms of its dealings with other nations is certain to be a world leader.
- No. We're told the nation can be one, but not definitely one (which the word 'certain' suggests)

(C) A nation that has the terms of its dealings with another action set by that nation cannot be a world leader.
- Yes. If we're told a nation that has the terms of its dealing set by another nation and this is sufficient to make it not be a 'world leader', then it's true that a nation that does not owe money (sets the terms) is a world leader.

(D) A nation that is a world leader can borrow from another nation as long as that other nation does not set the terms of the dealings between the two nations.
- No. Does not tells us why not oweing money makes a nation a world leader

(E) A nation that has no dealings with any other nation cannot be world leader.
- Out

I'll take C

Late but (C) seemed to make the most sense though it kinda repeats what was stated in the passage

i went with C , precisely because it repeats the words of the conclusion, but i could not find a reason to reject D , hence took 3:31 min to choose between C and D
