### HideShow timer Statistics

At many colleges today, regulations have been imposed that forbid the use in speech or print of language that “offends” or “insults” the members of any group, especially women and racial, ethnic, and religious minorities. Although these regulations are defended in the name of “democracy,” they restrict freedom of speech and the press in a way that opposes the true spirit of democracy.
The argument above attempts to prove its case primarily by
(A) impugning the credentials of an opponent
(B) providing examples that support a theoretical principle
(C) taking advantage of inconsistencies in the definition of “democracy”
(D) revealing a contradiction in an opposing point of view
(E) appealing to the patriotic feelings of its audience

Can you explain your answer choice too? Thanks.

I am not sure, but the point is about democracy. Therefore my answer is C.

I think, this is not a GMAT question.

I was down to C & D.

How ever I dont see Democracy defined in the stimulus for the argument to take advantage of the stimulus.

Cautiously D

the OA is "D."

What is the explanation? Is it because other answer choices are wrong or is there an alternate explanation.
