The fact that several of the largest senior citizens’ organizations are constituted almost exclusively of middle-class elderly people has led critics to question the seriousness of those organizations’ commitment to speaking out on behalf of the needs of economically disadvantaged elderly people.
Which of the following generalizations, if true, would help to substantiate the criticism implicit in the statement above?
(A) The ideology of an organization tends reflect the traditional political climate of its locale.
(B) The needs of disadvantaged elderly people differ in some ways from those of other disadvantaged groups within contemporary society.
(C) Organized groups are better able to publicize their problems and seek redress than individuals acting alone.
(D) Middle-class elderly people are more likely to join organizations than are economically disadvantaged elderly people.
(E) People usually join organizations whose purpose is to further the economic, political, or social interests of their members.

E seems to be the answer.

Argument says more middle-class elderly people are joining. E says that they have clear motives. Pieces fit together :lol:

This one is hard since it's asking for a generalization that will help substantiate the critque. The answer needs to be general yet still within the premise of the question. If I had to guess on the test, I would go with E.

Only E looks in scope to me.
All other choices seem irrelevant.
