Should be D.

I dont see any use in assuming A.

Argument says says. govt can sell the helium and clear its debt..irrespective of whether govt needs it or not.

But what if the price fall when govt tries to sell, this clearly weakens the argument. And we need this assumption to defend the conclusion.

i feel the answer is b.. This is the assumption if not taken will fail the conclusion of the total debt part. I may be wrong though

D . Well if govt is not using it then better it sells it off and invests the money or fill balloons with the gas.

Its not about the need here as said in A.

Plz tell OA, if it exists :)
