D for me too. Even though C is tempting but out of scope.

Here the argument is the last sentence in the paragraph which is against the regulations imposed against free speech. The opposing view supports the regulations & does so in the name of democracy.

But by restricting free speech which is important for democracy, the regulations act against the same democracy which is being used to justify them. Hence a contradiction. So, D is the correct answer.

As for C, nothing is mentioned in the paragraph pertaining to the definition of democracy, let alone its inconsistencies.

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 - Out of scope
(B) providing examples that support a theoretical principle - out of scope as no example has been provided
(C) taking advantage of inconsistencies in the definition of “democracy” - out of scope as democracy has not been defined
(D) revealing a contradiction in an opposing point of view
Since the regulations supress right of speech and freedom of expression they are contradicting the true spirit of democracy
(E) appealing to the patriotic feelings of its audience - Out of scope, no such mention given
