Tsumi bats are a rare breed of omnivorous bat found only in high temperate climates. Most Tsumi bats living in captivity develop endocrine imbalances from their normal zoo diets, which consist mostly of fruits and berries. The healthiest way to feed the bats, therefore, is to provide them primarily with nuts, grub, and vegetables and only minimal amounts of fruits and berries.

Which of the statements below does NOT reflect an assumption upon which the argument depends?

(A) Those who care for Tsumi bats in captivity should avoid feeding them diets that produce endocrine imbalances.

(B) Tsumi bats living in captivity will not be malnourished on diets that contain minimal fruits and berries.

(C) Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.

(D) Tsumi bats living in captivity will be adequately nourished on a diet that consists primarily of nuts, grubs, and vegetables.

(E) For Tsumi bats living in captivity, no health problem stemming from diets consisting mostly of nuts, grubs, and vegetables would surpass in severity the health problems associated with endocrine imbalances.

The trick is to negate each choice and see of the conclusion is weakened. For all the choices that's the case except for C.

Let's see the choices:

(A) Those who care for Tsumi bats in captivity should avoid feeding them diets that produce endocrine imbalances.

The argument says that endocrine imbalances results from improper diet. Hence it is assumed.

(B) Tsumi bats living in captivity will not be malnourished on diets that contain minimal fruits and berries.

The proposed diet will make them adequately nourished. It's evident from the last sentence.

(C) Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.

It is not assumed that the Tsunami bats would consume diets that consists primarily of nuts, grubs and vegetables and not fruits and berries.

(D) Tsumi bats living in captivity will be adequately nourished on a diet that consists primarily of nuts, grubs, and vegetables.

Negating this weakens the conclusion.

(E) For Tsumi bats living in captivity, no health problem stemming from diets consisting mostly of nuts, grubs, and vegetables would surpass in severity the health problems associated with endocrine imbalances.

This has to assumed otherwise it will weaken the claim made by argument.

Need some help in understanding on how A is an assumption ... It seems to me as an inference than an assumption ..

C: Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.
If i negate C. I have Tsumi bats will not consume diets that consist of N, G and V but no F/B.
So, the healthiest way is not followed and hence Bats originate state will be restored.
This is an assumption and a necessary one of all.
But we need to answer the choice that is not an assumption.

Which of the statements below does NOT reflect an assumption upon which the argument depends?

So OA should be A.

I think OA is still C .. Because the argument states minimal F & B.. So it is not assumed that there is no F & B .. Actually the statement C says opposite of premise as it is stated that currently the diet consists of F & B..

My confusion is how can be considered as an assumption as it seems tone after the conclusion is considered true... As there are still instances of people F & B.

+1 C
Assumptions are:
1) Captive Tsumi bats develop endocrine imbalances mostly from fruits and berries.
2) Captive Tsumi bats if kept on the normal zoo diet, would develop endocrine imbalances.
3) Healthiest diet is the one with nuts, grubs and vegetables, and minimal amount of fruits and berries.
4) Tsumi bats would not face any, or only minimal, health problem with a diet of nuts, grubs and vegetables.

Which of the statements below does NOT reflect an assumption upon which the argument depends?

(A) Those who care for Tsumi bats in captivity should avoid feeding them diets that produce endocrine imbalances.- Assumption, only if you care would you look into the diets of this rare breed of bats.
(B) Tsumi bats living in captivity will not be malnourished on diets that contain minimal fruits and berries.- Assumption 1
(C) Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.- Who said?
(D) Tsumi bats living in captivity will be adequately nourished on a diet that consists primarily of nuts, grubs, and vegetables.- Assumption 3
(E) For Tsumi bats living in captivity, no health problem stemming from diets consisting mostly of nuts, grubs, and vegetables would surpass in severity the health problems associated with endocrine imbalances. - Assumption 4

The argument talks about the diet of bats residing in captivity. These bats seem to be fed with more of fruit than some other items. This imbalance causes some kind of endocrine imbalance.

Assumption - The fruit based diet causes these endocrine imbalances. Minimal amount of fruit would restore the balance, assuming there are nuts,grubs and vegetables in their diet. More or less the assumption is that fruit causes problems, so avoid feeding fruit to these bats.

(A) Those who care for Tsumi bats in captivity should avoid feeding them diets that produce endocrine imbalances. - Is an assumption. Wrong

(B) Tsumi bats living in captivity will not be malnourished on diets that contain minimal fruits and berries. Is an assumption. This is not explicitly stated but the term "healthiest way to feed the bats" kind of indirectly states that the bats won't be malnourished.

(C) Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.
-> CORRECT choice. If you negate this assumption, then the whole argument falls apart. The fruit based diet is the foundation of this argument. If the bats consume/used to consumer/will consume the healthier diet, then there would be no endocrine imbalances.

(D) Tsumi bats living in captivity will be adequately nourished on a diet that consists primarily of nuts, grubs, and vegetables. - "healthiest way" reflects that their nourishment would be taken care of . Wrong choice

(E) For Tsumi bats living in captivity, no health problem stemming from diets consisting mostly of nuts, grubs, and vegetables would surpass in severity the health problems associated with endocrine imbalances. "Healthiest way" seems to be the best way to feed these bats. So, probably the health problems stemming from these diets would be less severe than the endocrine imbalances.

Is it because we are making a distinction between feeding and consuming???

Why C? Your explanation seems to suggest that C is actually an assumption whereas the question is about finding the option which is NOT an ASSUMPTION.

I tried the Negation test-

Negated C-Tsumi bats living in captivity will NOT consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.

The conclusion remains unaffected because the diet WILL CONTAIN some fruits and berries.

Tough One!!!!!

(A) Those who care for Tsumi bats in captivity should avoid feeding them diets that produce endocrine imbalances.

(B) Tsumi bats living in captivity will not be malnourished on diets that contain minimal fruits and berries.

(C) Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.

(E) For Tsumi bats living in captivity, no health problem stemming from diets consisting mostly of nuts, grubs, and vegetables would surpass in severity the health problems associated with endocrine imbalances.

Logical structure -
Premise-Tsumi bats are a rare breed of omnivorous bat found only in high temperate climates.
Premise-Most (Not All) Tsumi bats living in captivity (not wild bats living in the open) develop endocrine imbalances from their normal zoo diets, which consist mostly of fruits and berries (The diet may still contain some other items but in less proportion in comparison to fruits and berries).- Cause and Effect type statement
Conclusion -The healthiest way to feed the bats, therefore, is to provide them primarily with nuts, grub, and vegetables and only minimal amounts of fruits and berries.-( Hmm..TALL CLAIM and SCOPE SHIFT from normal diets to Healthiest diets)

Pre-thinking-(The stem asks to look for option which is not an assumption.)

Assumption is something that must be true .It is absolutely necessary to arrive at the conclusion. Assumption is the unstated premise which the author has not stated but needs to link his premise with the conclusion.

1.There is something missing in the normal zoo diets of the Tsumi bats .
2.Diet containing nuts, grubs and vegetables and minimal fruits and berries help remove the endocrine imbalance.
3.Diet that may develop endocrine imbalance in bats is not the healthiest diet.
4. There is no other alternate explanation for the endocrine imbalance.
5. The birds did not already have endocrine imbalances before they were fed with the normal zoo diets containing fruits and berries.

POE-(The stem asks to look for option which is not an assumption.)

(A) Those who care for Tsumi bats in captivity should avoid feeding them diets that produce endocrine imbalances.-

Ofcourse!!! Missed it in pre-thinking about assumptions!!!
If someone does not care about bats why will he bother to give them helathy diets. So, this is definitely an assumption.

(B) Tsumi bats living in captivity will not be malnourished on diets that contain minimal fruits and berries.-

Ofcourse!! The diets with minimal fruits and berries is the healthiest diet.If it were not so, the conclusion will not hold.Negation of the this statement breaks the conclusion.So, this is a valid assumption.

(C) Tsumi bats living in captivity will consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.- Hmmm....something fishy..The author never talks about diets containing NO fruits and berries.

Even if we negate the statement, conclusion does not gets shattered.
Negated statement -Tsumi bats living in captivity will NOT consume diets that consist of nuts, grubs, and vegetables but no fruits or berries.

No effect on the conclusion because the conclusion is about diets containing more nuts, grub, and vegetables and only minimal amounts of fruits and berries.

(D) Tsumi bats living in captivity will be adequately nourished on a diet that consists primarily of nuts, grubs, and vegetables.

Of course yes; Otherwise the diet will not be called healthy. And since the diet will primarily contain nuts, grubs, and vegetables. Negation of this option would render the conclusion invalid.So, this is a valid assumption.

(E) For Tsumi bats living in captivity, no health problem stemming from diets consisting mostly of nuts, grubs, and vegetables would surpass in severity the health problems associated with endocrine imbalances

Naturally, otherwise how can author conclude that the diet containing more nuts,grubs etc. will be better than the normal zoo diets!!

So, C is the correct answer;Negated C is unable to shatter the conclusion.

Kudos, if someone finds the above helpful!!

I went with C, and specifically because of the strong language that it uses...
NO FRUITS or BERRIES - no...that's not what the argument says!
