Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

Some teenagers, citing Freedom of Speech, say they oppose parents and teachers who chastise them for speaking their mind, provided what they say is their opinion, is honest, and is not derogatory to any of their peers or guardians. The authors of the Amendments to the Constitution made no such provisions. Freedom of speech carries with it no responsibility to meet standards of honesty or respect or truth, especially those established by outside arbiters: students, teachers, and parents.

(A) One's speech is required only to present the facts according to common sense standards of opinion, honesty, and respect for peers and family.

(B) One's speech must consider first and foremost the wishes and interests of one's peers, the audience that will listen closely to every word

(C) One's speech is free to be as "dishonest" and "derogatory" as one wishes.

(D) One's speech must simply provide space for one's opponents to present their point of view in order to guarantee the watching public that they are fully and honestly informed.

(E) One's speech must take public responsibility to be truthful, since one's word has a profound impact on the public's understanding of a situation.

It is a tough question . Thanks for your post
+1 Kudos

My answer is "C" . The argument say that . Parents and teachers punish the teenagers when they speak in mind, although they are hones and not derogatory to anyone. Teenagers oppose to parents and teachers' action (chastising) . am.of constitution have no rule for that and also the freedom of speech has no responsibility for students ,teachers...etc. Therefore taking the views from am.of constitution and freedom of speech(no support to students) it can be said One's speech is free to be as "dishonest" and "derogatory" as one wishes. What is the OA

Doesn't this line help answer the question? if you ask yourself why after that statement, only C answers the question.

+1 Kudo. Its difficult question, I went wrong on first read. Convinced with OA.

Teachers and parents chastise the teenagers for speaking their opinion, which is honest and not derogatory. Teenagers oppose this fact.
-> Open minded speech should not be dishonest and derogatory. BUT, constitution made no such provisions.
=> Speech may be dishonest or derogatory. (implied meaning)<<- Answer.

constitution tells that "The speech should carry no responsibility to meet standards of honesty,respect or truth, when it is spoken by outside arbiters. ".. Idea can be extended by saying Speech is open to be dishonest and derogatory.. only Option (C) says this.
