An assumption of the passage is that

(A) tranquilizers are always an effective treatment for stress
(B) the inhibition of stress responses increases subjective stress
(C) stress as measured by a lie detector is similar to everyday stress
(D) persons who lie during a lie detector test display signs of stress
(E) it is not desirable to reduce stress in everyday situations
