The program to control the entry of illegal drugs into the country was a failure in 1987. If the program had been successful, the wholesale price of most illegal drugs would not have dropped substantially in 1987.
The argument in the passage depends on which of the following assumptions?
(A) The supply of illegal drugs dropped substantially in 1987.
(B) The price paid for most illegal drugs by the average consumer did not drop substantially in 1987.
(C) Domestic production of illegal drugs increased at a higher rate than did the entry of such drugs into the country.
(D) The wholesale price of a few illegal drugs increased substantially in 1987.
(E) A drop in demand for most illegal drugs in 1987 was not the sole cause of the drop in their wholesale price.

E.

We are assuming there was no other reason for the drop in prices.

The tricky one...oofffffff
Conclusion: Price has dropped because of failure of the program. Means illegal drugs are coming in the market. off-course if supply will be high price will be low.

The argument in the passage depends on which of the following assumptions?
(A) The supply of illegal drugs dropped substantially in 1987. - this is opposite of premise.

(B) The price paid for most illegal drugs by the average consumer did not drop substantially in 1987. - this is already mentioned, no new information.

(C) Domestic production of illegal drugs increased at a higher rate than did the entry of such drugs into the country. - A trap: the comparison is of no use. it may be 10% and 11% or 90% or 91%.

(D) The wholesale price of a few illegal drugs increased substantially in 1987. - only few drugs, how about most of the drugs?

(E) A drop in demand for most illegal drugs in 1987 was not the sole cause of the drop in their wholesale price. - here it is, demand is not the only cause, you are right because supply is the cause.

Hope this helps!
