10. Most people are indignant at the suggestion that they are not reliable authorities about their real wants. Such self-knowledge, however, is not the easiest kind of knowledge to acquire. Indeed, acquiring it often requires hard and even potentially risky work. To avoid such effort, people unconsciously convince themselves that they want what society says they should want.
The main point of the argument is that
(A) acquiring self-knowledge can be risky
(B) knowledge of what one really wants is not as desirable as it is usually thought to be
(C) people cannot really want what they should want
(D) people usually avoid making difficult decisions
(E) people are not necessarily reliable authorities about what they really want
I had to choose between A and E. A is right, but it is not the main point of the argument. The main point is mentioned in the first statement. If the first statement is not there in the argument, then A can be the answer.
The path is long, but self-surrender makes it short;
the way is difficult, but perfect trust makes it easy.
