A) Withdrawal of U.S. aid from Zunimagua will force a change in the policies of its government.

Wrong..out of scope..We don't know what would happen if US were to withdraw the aid..

B) The people of Zunimagua would be better off if their present despotic government were overthrown.

Also wrong..sounds wrong..

C) The government of Zunimagua is dependent on continued U.S. aid for its existence.

No where it is said so..

D) U.S. aid should be given only to countries willing to adopt policies in line with U.S. interests and goals.

There is no mention of what are the US interests are ...so this is also wrong..

E) U.S. aid should be withdrawn from any country that refuses to operate its government along democratic lines.

I think this is the best one..
