VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

Keep a close eye on the details in this Assumption question. The conclusion says that Aingeru shouldn’t be accused of the theft of the pudding pop because Iskandar stole the ice cream sandwich, but what do those two things have to do with each other? Nothing, necessarily: Iskandar could’ve stolen the ice cream sandwich while Aingeru stole the pudding pop. So for Aingeru to be exonerated, we need Iskandar to have stolen both items, but none of our premises say anything to that effect. That means we must need a premise to supply that evidence, and (E) is the best option.

This question is broken. The assumption should be "whoever took the ice-cream sandwich took the pudding pop" not the other way around.
VeritasPrepBrian pls respond

The argument is that since Iskandar admitted to taking the ice cream, they must apologize to Aingeru.
This should be based on the fact that whoever took the ice-cream sandwhich also took the pudding pop; thus, Aingeru is exonerated.

Based on the way E is written, the conclusion should be that "Aingeru" should be the accused
