The upcoming presidential election in the West African republic of Ganelon is of grave concern to the U.S. State Department. Ganelon presently has strong political and military ties to the United States. However, the Socialist party is widely expected to win the election, leading to fears that Ganelon will soon break away from the pro-American bloc and adopt a nonaligned or openly anti-American stance.

Which of the following is an assumption made in the passage above?
(A) A Socialist party government in Ganelon is more likely to oppose the United States than is a non-Socialist party government.
(B) The people of the United States recognize their nationâ€™s interest in the political stability of West Africa.
(C) A weakening of U.S. political ties with Ganelon could have serious consequences for U.S. relations with other African nations.
(D) The Socialist party leaders in Ganelon believe that their nationâ€™s interests would best be served by an alliance with anti-American forces.
(E) The Socialist party will win the upcoming election in Ganelon.

I didnt bknow between A and D
but in D it says that they will make an alliance with anti-American forces whereas in the text it is clearly said that Ganelon will soon break away from the pro-American bloc and adopt a nonaligned or openly anti-American stance.
If Ganelon is non aligned, which is possible, OA can not be D

so A

easy A here. the fact that the new socialist govenrment is more likely to win the election and thus threaten the us-african relations, and the fact that the current non-socialist government has ties with the us , makes the nonsocialist government less likely to go anti us than a socialist one. exactly the same as in A.

its between A and B.
B is also an equal contender 'coz the question stem stated that 'the upcoming presidential election in the West African republic of Ganelon is of grave concern to the U.S. State Department'.
however, we can eliminate B 'coz the answer choice was more related to the people's perception of threat rather than U.S. State Department's perception.
