The government of Zunimagua has refused to schedule free elections, release political prisoners, or restore freedom of speech; therefore, no more financial aid from the United States should be provided to Zunimagua.
Which of the following is an assumption made in the argument above?

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

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

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

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

E) U.S. aid should be withdrawn from any country that refuses to operate its government along democratic lines.

Can anyone explain the right answer.

(E) it is,

Rest all are out of scope,

(D) is wrong because we don't know what are US interests.

Who says that whatevertthis Govt is doing is undemocratic? Hence choice D seems incorrect.

Perhaps its C.

On second thoughts, I'd go with A.

Because some govt is doing bad things, lets cut off the aid. The assumption seems to be that if the aid is withdrawn, then the govt. will mend its ways.

This is what A means. It sounds too straighforward to be the answer...

E is the OA. I marked C bcos i thought that its too much to assume that democracy is what all the government has refused to do as per the argument.
But as MBA said C is out of scope since it really doesn't matter to this argument whether the government of Zunimagua is dependent on US aid.
