Premiums for automobile accident insurance are often
higher for red cars than for cars of other colors. To
justify these higher charges, insurance companies claim
that, overall, a greater percentage of red cars are
involved in accidents than are cars of any other color. If
this claim is true, then lives could undoubtedly be saved
by banning red cars from the roads altogether.
The reasoning in the argument is flawed because
the argument

(A) accepts without question that insurance
companies have the right to charge higher
premiums for higher-risk clients

(B) fails to consider whether red cars cost the same to
repair as cars of other colors

(C) ignores the possibility that drivers who drive
recklessly have a preference for red cars

(D) does not specify precisely what percentage of red
cars are involved in accidents

(E) makes an unsupported assumption that every
automobile accident results in some loss of life

Why Not E? There is nothing said about lives lost in the argument and conclusion talks about minimizing lives lost....so how do I eliminate E?

I think the answer is C. It can't be E because nowhere in the argument is there an indication that the author thinks every automobile accident leads to loss of lives. The author only says "lives could undoubtedly be saved", he does not indicate that all lives can be saved.

Wel if you say that the author didn't said anything about life loss then it surely be E. In the premise, there is no indication of life loss. Only accidents are mentioned. But in the conclusion, he/she says that "lives could undoubtedly be saved", so I think it's definitely E.

I go with C

It can't be E because the argument is articulated around the "red cars" idea. Although the life-loss is part of the argument, the whole argument deals with red cars as part of the evidence, assumption, and conclusion.
