1) In one state, all cities and most towns have antismoking ordinances
2) A petition is being circulated to voters by campaign workers
3) Campaign workers ask only "Do you want to sign a petition for statewide smoking restriction"
4) The petition advocates a state law banning smoking in most retail establishments and in government offices that are open to public

The voters think that by signing this petition, the anti smoking law would be extended statewide, and we're asked which condition would mislead them to think otherwise.

A. Health costs associated with smoking cause health insurance premiums to rise for everyone and so affect nonsmokers.
- Too narrow. limited to nonsmokers

B. In rural areas of the state, there are relatively few retail establishments and government offices that are open to the public.
- Too narrow. Discusses only rural areas

C. The state law would supersede the local antismoking ordinances, which contain stronger bans than the state law does.
- If the state law supersedes a local antimsoking ordinance with stronger bans, then voters would not vote in favor.

D. There is considerable sentiment among voters in most areas of the state for restriction of smoking.
- Not important.

E. The state law would not affect existing local ordinances banning smoking in places where the fire authorities have determined that smoking would constitute a fire hazard
- out of scope

C for me

I think it's C
The petition would be misleading it it promisses something butin reality works against it. Look at C. It looks like petition imposes harsher rules but in reality it dismisses the regulations.
