At many top restaurants, professional chefs use cast iron pans, which retain their heat better than other pans and can be transferred directly from the stovetop to the oven. They even work well for foods such as eggs and fish, which require nonstick surfaces. However, to retain their nonstick quality, cast iron pans need to be regularly seasoned, a process that involves coating the pan with oil or butter and heating it in the oven. Coated aluminum pans use synthetic fluoropolymers to create a nonstick surface that doesn't require as much maintenance. Thus, coated aluminum pans are ultimately more convenient than cast iron pans for cooking eggs and fish at home.

The argument above relies on which of the following assumptions?
a) Cast iron pans are difficult to maintain.
b) Cookware that requires more maintenance is not as convenient for home cooking.
c) There are no pans that are more convenient for nonstick purposes than coated aluminum pans.
d) Coated aluminum pans can be used to cook foods that do not require a nonstick coating.
e) There is no need to use butter or oil to cook in a coated aluminum pan.

Maintenance of aluminum pans vs. Maintenance of cast iron pans
- Non-sticky -Non-sticky
- Can be used with all kind of foods -Ditto
- Convenient for home cooking -Require maintenance (Bold portion)


Conclusion (underlined portion)

So cast iron pans (because they need some maintenance) are not convenient for home cooking.

a) Cast iron pans are difficult to maintain. Yup!! We read that they need maintenance but this is not the assumption. Difficult to maintain. So what? Is it convenient or not? Missing reason is not there.

b) Cookware that requires more maintenance is not as convenient for home cooking. (It matches our pre-thinking)
Negated version: Cookware that requires more maintenance is as convenient for home cooking.
This shatters the conclusion.
