The government has proposed a plan requiring young people to perform services to correct various current social ills, especially those in education and housing. Government service, however, should be compelled only in response to a direct threat to the nation’s existence. For that reason, the proposed program should not be implemented.

Which one of the following is an assumption on which the government depends?

(A) Government-required service by young people cannot correct all social ills.

(B) The nation’s existence is directly threatened only in times of foreign attack.

(C) Crises in education and housing constitute a threat to the nation’s existence.

(D) The nation’s young people believe that current social ills pose no direct threat to the nation’s existence.

(E) Some of the social ills that currently afflict the nation do not pose a direct threat to the nation’s existence.

Shouldn't it be C.
The question asks what assumption government depends on. The critical is word government. Government proposed the program and thinks that education problem constitutes national thread. The opponents say that it does not, but goverment does not assume that.

(A) Not related
(B) Not related
(C) -No - If it were a threat then the program would have been implemented.
(D) No - Even if the young people think so govt. may still go ahead
(E) Yes - If the govt thinks that it is not a direct threat then it will not implement the same.

(C) Crises in education and housing constitute a threat to the nation’s existence. - But it does not say whether it is a direct threat.

(E) Some of the social ills that currently afflict the nation do not pose a direct threat to the nation’s existence. - Negate this and the argument falls apart.

Hence E.

I will go with C. The question asks the assumption on whic the govt. depends. Govt thinks that it is a threat so it proposed the idea. However , the idea maynot have been passed by the parliament coz these probs donot constitue a direct threat.
The main point to note is that the assumption of govt. is being asked.
