Mayor: Repays her political debts ASAP
Lee: Supported Drabble in the last electoin
Mayor: Will appoint Lee to head the commission
Assumption: Drabble's last political help came from Lee
Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
(A) Mayor Drabble has no political debt that is both of longer standing than the one she owes to Lee and could as suitably be repaid by an appointment to be the new head of the arts commission. ==> Correct!
(B) There is no one to whom Mayor Drabble owes a greater political debt for support in the last election than the political debt she owes to Lee. ==> Amount of political debt is not discussed
(C) Lee is the only person to whom Mayor Drabble owes a political debt who would be willing to accept an appointment from her as the new head of the arts commission. ==> Not an assumption
(D) Whether Lee is qualified to head the arts commission is irrelevant to Mayor Drabble's decision. ==> Out of scope
(E) The only way that Mayor Drabble can adequately repay her political debt to Lee is by appointing him to head the arts commission. ==> Not an assumption
Don't be afraid to take a flying leap of faith.. If you risk nothing, than you gain nothing...
