The line of reasoning need to be warranted with:

Person A has difficult task --> Person A faces it either as a challenge or as a threat --> Person B (confident) assesses person A and his choice, with basis on Person B's own experience

I first chose (B), but I realized it is wrong. Thus, I choose (E).


Very tough question, noboru!

I believe the answer is C.

My summary: If people who tend to trust others think of a difficult task as a challenge are confident in their own abilities. Therefore, people who are confident in their own abilities do not believe that others distrust them.

The answer: People who tend to trust others do not believe that others distrust them.

Tricky one, but see phrases as a whole.
We have:
evidence
People who do not believe that others distrust them = confident in their own abilities
A=B

conclusion
people who tend to trust others = confident in their won abilities
C=B

Hence the needed assumtion is A=C:
People who do not believe that others distrust them = people who tend to trust others

So, the answer is C

I will say C as well. People who trust others, tend to believe that they are trusted as well.

C. I think there's a page in the forum about logic flow. If X then Y = Not Y then X. Going through that process helped me here.

Re: People who do not believe that others distrust them are [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2015, 07:27
The argument concludes that those (who tend to trust others) think of a difficult task as a challenge rather than a threat.
The basis for this claim is that:
- There are those who don't believe that other distrust them. These people are confident in their abilities
- Those who are confident in their won abilities in difficult tasks think of a difficult task as a challenge rather than a threat.
--> Those who tend to trust others must be confident in their won abilities.
--> The connection between those who don't believe that others distrust them and those who tend to trust others?
A - OOS. The argument does not mention those who believe that others distrust them.
B - It's not dealing with the trustworthiness of others.
C - This establishes the relationship between the 2 subjects mentioned above: Those who tend to trust others --> do not believe that others distrust them --> confident in their abilities --> Think of a difficult task as a challenge rather than a threat. If yes, the conclusion is correct. If not, it is hard to say. CORRECT
D - Irrelevant.
E - OOS.
