Parent: The city education department is unable to distinguish between annoyances and
important problems. For instance, prohibiting students from having cell phones is an
overreaction. If a student uses one and thus interferes with instruction, confiscate it. All in
all, we need educational leadership that can solve problems, not create them. Which of the
following is an assumption made by the parent?
A) Students having cell phones does not constitute an important problem for the city schools.
b) Students have no need for cell phones in school.
c) Faculty and staff should be allowed to possess cell phones.
d) Students need to have cell phones because some of them have no stay-at-home parent.
e) An interest in solving problems is the most important attribute of an educational leader.

This argument concludes that the city needs educational leadership that can
solve problems, not create them. It illustrates this claim by discussing the
prohibition on cell phones. This prohibition is given as an example of the
leadership creating problems where none exist. The necessary assumption is
one that bridges the logic gap between the premise and the conclusion.
(A) CORRECT. In order to use the issue of students having cells phones as an
example of how the educational leadership creates problems where none exist,
the author must assume that students having cell phones is not an important
problem.
(B) The argument and its conclusion are not about students’ needs. They
concern the quality of educational leadership. Thus, this choice is irrelevant; it is
not necessary for the argument to assume anything about students’ needs.
(C) This choice is irrelevant; the argument does not concern faculty and staff cell
phones, and thus no assumption about them is necessary. Assumptions must be
both unstated and necessary to the conclusion.
(D) The argument and its conclusion are not about students’ needs. They
concern the quality of educational leadership. Thus, this choice is irrelevant; it is
not necessary for the argument to assume anything about students’ needs.
(E) The argument does not rank the various attributes of good educational
leadership. It only discusses one quality. Thus, no assumption about the relative
importance of attributes is necessary, and this choice is irrelevant.
