Is the provincial government really as corrupt as people say? Well, I know one woman who, when her husband got his first driver's license, said that she would not permit him to drive the family car until he actually learned how to drive.

Which of the following is the point the speaker wants to make?
A) The provincial government is very corrupt
B) It is not difficult to learn to drive
C) Governments everywhere are more or less corrupt
D) A license should not be required to drive a family car
E) Governmental corruption should not be tolerated

I beleive A is the answer unless there is a trick somewhere..It seems very straight forward.

Although the tense and feeling oif the argument may be that he wanted to tell the opposite of it but the example he gave suggests that the government is very corrupt

Husband gets a driving license without knowing how to drive (only a corrupt government can issue licenses by taking bribes). A proves this and the wife (home minister) has every right based on this evidence to stop her husband to drive their family car.

A here.

We can infer that the woman's husband was able to obtain a driver's license even though he did not know how to drive. This was narrated to prove the first sentence that the provincial government was corrupt.

OA: A
C says "Governments everywhere" which is not substantiated by the woman's claim
