Although the theater would increase its revenue by placing a snack bar in the lobby, we should not go forward with this plan. Installing a snack bar in the lobby would not be in everyone's best interest. If people start bringing more snacks into the theater, the delicate furniture will become dirty more quickly.
The argument depends on which of the following?
A. If a snack bar were placed in the lobby, patrons would consume more snacks in the theater as a result.
B. The amount of snacks that most theater patrons consume does not cause the furniture to become dirty.
C. The theater will probably be cleaner if snacks are banned completely than if patrons are only permitted to have one snack.
D. Patrons will not simply bring snacks from home if the snack bar is not installed in the lobby.
E. The theater's primary concern should be to maintain a clean environment.

IMO D.

It is a find assumption type of question. We are supposed the find the link that connects the conclusion of :If people start bringing more snacks into the theater, the delicate furniture will become dirty more quickly with premise supporting it - existence of a snack bar in the lobby.

A. If a snack bar were placed in the lobby, patrons would consume more snacks in the theater as a result. Strengthens the argument, we want an implicit assumption.
B. The amount of snacks that most theater patrons consume does not cause the furniture to become dirty. weakens the argument , but not an assumption made.
C. The theater will probably be cleaner if snacks are banned completely than if patrons are only permitted to have one snack. grossly irrelevant / unrelated to the argument about snack bar.
D. Patrons will not simply bring snacks from home if the snack bar is not installed in the lobby. Perfect! This is the assumption on which premise connects conclusion. If people bring snacks from home the theater would still get dirty with ot without the presence of a snack bar.
E. The theater's primary concern should be to maintain a clean environment. Unrelated to argument,

Hence D.

Please give me a +1 kudos if you liked the explanation...

The argument depends on which of the following?

A. If a snack bar were placed in the lobby, patrons would consume more snacks in the theater as a result. --This info is already given in the argument.
B. The amount of snacks that most theater patrons consume does not cause the furniture to become dirty. --This weakens the argument
C. The theater will probably be cleaner if snacks are banned completely than if patrons are only permitted to have one snack. --We don't know. This is a hypothetical scenario
D. Patrons will not simply bring snacks from home if the snack bar is not installed in the lobby. --Correct.
E. The theater's primary concern should be to maintain a clean environment. --Argument is not about primary concern of theatre's management

D seems to justify the assumption that the only way to get snacks is from the snack bar.
