When limitations were in effect on nuclear-arms testing, people tended to save more of their money, but when nuclear-arms testing increased, people tended to spend more of their money. The perceived threat of nuclear catastrophe, therefore, decreases the willingness of people to postpone consumption for the sake of saving money.

The argument above assumes that


1) the perceived threat of nuclear catastrophe has increased over the years

2) most people supported the development of nuclear arms

3) people’s perception of the threat of nuclear catastrophe depends on the amount of nuclear-arms testing being done

4) the people who saved the most money when nuclear-arms testing was limited were the ones who supported such limitations

5) there are more consumer goods available when nuclear-arms testing increases

The argument talks about nuclear testing but the conclusion talks about people's perception of nuclear threat. In order for the conclusion to hold, we must assume a relation between these two. Hence the answer has to be C.
Hope that helps.

Conclusion: The perceived threat of nuclear catastrophe decreases tendency of saving and increases spending.

1) the perceived threat of nuclear catastrophe has increased over the years
-- Not an assumption and conclusion is not based upon this fact.
2) most people supported the development of nuclear arms
-- Not an assumption and conclusion is not based upon this fact.
3) people’s perception of the threat of nuclear catastrophe depends on the amount of nuclear-arms testing being done
-- Thsi bridges the gap between people's perception of neuclear threat (and hence their spending) and amount of nuclear testing.
4) the people who saved the most money when nuclear-arms testing was limited were the ones who supported such limitations
-- Author dont have to assume this to arrive at his conclusion.
5) there are more consumer goods available when nuclear-arms testing increases
-- Not an assumption and conclusion is not based upon this fact.

Hence choice(C) is the answer.
