A political candidate committed to the principal tenets of a political party may not always explain the implications of his or her party commitment to the voters in full detail. Adele Richardson, for example, is a minor-party candidate in contention for a seat on the school board. She is not likely to inform conservative voters in her district that the national leadership of her party has recently recommended that school curricula be more closely monitored by agencies of the federal government.

Which of the following is not assumed or implied by the passage above?

A) A political candidate is likely to be more interested in winning an election than in proselytizing the electorate.
B) The candidate of any party is likely to support the policy decisions made by the national leadership.
C) All candidates for such community positions as membership on the school board must have commitments to national parties.
D) Conservatives in Adele Richardson's district do not support federal intervention in decisions made by community school officials.
E) Voters in Adele Richardson's district are not fully aware of the policy statements made by the national leadership of her party

She is not likely to inform conservative voters in her district that the national leadership of her party has recently recommended that school curricula be more closely monitored by agencies of the federal government.

Which of the following is not assumed or implied by the passage above?

We need to identify, which option is not an assumption or implication that can be derived from the above argument. The purpose is to select the best possible choice.

A) A political candidate is likely to be more interested in winning an election than in proselytizing the electorate. >> From the first line and example mentioned it can be assumed that the Candidate is more interested in winning. >> Incorrect
B) The candidate of any party is likely to support the policy decisions made by the national leadership. >> Since the candidate is more likely not to inform the voters about the decision from the leaders. It can be implied that directly or indirectly candidate is supporting the decision. >> Incorrect
C) All candidates for such community positions as membership on the school board must have commitments to national parties. >> There is no mention about other candidates, they can be from a political party or they can independent. >> Correct
D) Conservatives in Adele Richardson's district do not support federal intervention in decisions made by community school officials. >> Since the candidate is not likely to disclose the decision from the party leaders to the conservative voters there is quite a possibility that they are against it. [b] [b]>> Incorrect
E) Voters in Adele Richardson's district are not fully aware of the policy statements made by the national leadership of her party >> If the voters would have been already aware of the decision, then the candidate would not have any issue with informing the voters about the same. >> Incorrect.
