As seen from the highlighted portions, the passage repeatedly talks about interests being represented.

C forms the assumption on which the entire passage is built.

Well the argument is based on the assumption that adolescent and adults have different interest and so adolesents interest should be represented. Therfore my choice is choice C.

Although I agree with the answer being C, I do no agree with Javed's reasoning. The assumption is that adolescents like adults have the right to representation. Therefore, since their interests are not being represented by adults, they should have the right to represent themselves.

Slight difference in reasoning for me. What do you guys think?

I think the basic assumption here is :Adolescents have no right to vote and hence they need a representation. Therefore I pick:E!
