I will go with 'D'
Since the conclusion of the argument is that 'most literate persons are lazy' becos not many of them have not read the classics, the author assumes 'D'

I beg to differ from rthothad,
I vote for C

D is implied from the statement. C correctly states the assumption. What is the OA?
