There are many reasons why individuals want to run their own businesses. Some foresee more personal satisfaction if they are successful in launching their own business, while others are interested mainly in the prospect of larger financial rewards. Since the late 1970s and early 1980s, tax regulations and other changes have encouraged increasing numbers of venture capitalists and entrepreneurs to start new enterprises. Since 1980, some one-half million new ventures have been started. Not all have succeeded, of course.
The above statement makes which of the following assumptions?
a) Success in starting a new business depends in large part on sound financial planning. ---> Nothing has been mentioned about financial planning.
b) Social incentives motivate investors just as much as financial rewards. ---> We cannot say this for sure. What we can only say is that financial rewards motivate investors
as is evident from the excerpt (...tax regulations and other changes have encouraged...).
c) Financial incentives are associated with new business starts. ---> Correct. By process of elimination
d) Most new business ventures succeed initially but fail later on. ---> This is using an extreme word most
. Discard it.
e) Venture capitalists are motivated by non-monetary gains. ---> Nothing is there to substantiate it. This option looks almost same as option B; looks like it has been rephrased with some modifications
My choice is option C
Hope that helps.

+++ Please tell me why other options are wrong. +++
