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.
13. 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.

A) Opposite. Passage implied that the supply of illegal drugs did not drop.
B) Out of scope
C) Out of scope
D) Our of scope
E) The passage implies that the whole price of drugs fell because they were not able to stop the illegal imports. So a drop in demand was not the only reason.

One more E.

If negate E, the conclusion would be invalid. In that case, the only reason for the drop in the price of drugs is the drop in the demand of that product, not the failure of the program to control inllegal drugs.

E for me. This assumption says that there is only one reason for the drop in price, which is suggested in the passage.
