I have to negate the view by showing that something legally permissible is immoral.

eliminate a "all circumstance." must be a specific law to test the view.
eliminate b whether the act is excusable is not argued
eliminate c no statement regarding morality
pass d a consensus does not necessarily indicate unanimity
eliminate e economic welfare is not argued

I would say:

(D) the moral consensus of a society is expressed in its laws

Options A, B, C, and E all would oppose the above view and not be in agreement.

A for me.
It is the only one that works.

Winner is A.
We have to find out the case that can make the above stand point inconsistent.
A says - law does not cover all circumstances in which one person morally wrongs another
That means in some of the circumstances, the stand point will hold and in some won't.

I don't understand this; can you explain?

I would have chosen nothing had there been an option for it. After reading over the comments of this thread, and finding out that OA was A, I reverse-engineered the solution: I think I was paying too much attention to the 2nd half of the statement, while the answer A applied to the first half. I'm not quite certain on this though.

For example, it says that some people take their moral cues from the government. The way you can look at it is that their 'moral' = whatever is law. So, A contradicts that, because it says 'moral' = law + something else.

I think A is correct.

Statement 1: From Govt law >>> Moral cues
So, its reverse negation will also be correct: ~(Moral cues) >>> ~(From Govt law)

Statement 2: Unimaginable (inconsistent) legally permissible >>>> Immoral (not moral cues)

From Statement 1, we can say that:
Inconsistent legally permissible >>>> not moral cues >>> ~(From Govt law)

This is what A says. Correct.
Choice B is too broad (NEVER) and rest choices are out of scope.
