C is an assumption on which the argument stands because:
it follows that of all potential nuclear reactor sites in such a region, those that are least likely to be struck by an earthquake are ones located near a fault that has produced an earthquake within living memory

C it is.

Since otherwise the reactors located in regions without minor faults have even smaller chance to be struck by an earthquake then those located near a fault that has produced an earthquake within living memory.
