9. Advertisement: Clark brand-name parts are made for cars manufactured in this country. They satisfy al of our government automotive test-the toughest such tests in the world. With foreign-made parts, you never know which might be reliable and which are cheap look-alikes that are poorly constructed and liable to cost you hundreds of dollars in repairs. Therefore, be smart and insist on brand-name parts by Clark for your car.

The argument requires the assumption that

(A) Clark parts are available only in this country

(B) foreign-made parts are not suitable for cars manufactured in this country

(C) no foreign-made parts satisfy our government standards

(D) parts that satisfy our government standards are not as poorly constructed as cheap foreign-made parts

(E) if parts are made for cars manufactured in our country, they are not poorly constructed

D. The argument requires that the 'Clark' parts are better than the 'cheap' foreign parts. If they are not better constructed than the foreign parts, than any foreign part will suffice in place of a Clark part.

(D) for me too. (C) is too strong by saying no foreign parts meets the test standards.
