We need the present because no news are always good news. It is not time dependant. Then A, D or E.

"To assume that" sounds idiomatic then A or D

"Assuming" sounds better than "On assuming" then A left.

That is needed as subjective mode is correct over here (please let me know if assumption can be taken under subjective mode)

I go with E

Is there an idiomatic usage - assuming x to be y ?
