At one sitting, a typical doughnut eater consumes 4 doughnuts containing a total of 680 calories and 40 grams of fat. The typical bagel eater consumes exactly one bagel, at 500 calories and one or two grams of fat per sitting, though the addition of spreads can raise calorie and fat content to the four-doughnut range. Thus, as far as total calorie content is concerned, there is very little difference between what a typical doughnut eater and a typical bagel eater each consumes at one sitting.

The argument depends on assuming which one of the following?

(A) The calories and fat in bagels have the same health impact on bagel eaters as the calories and fat in doughnuts have on doughnut eaters.

(B) Most bagel eaters are not fully aware of the calorie and fat content of a bagel.

(C) Eating bagels instead of eating doughnuts provides no real health benefit.

(D) The typical doughnut eater does not add to doughnuts any substances that increase the total caloric intake.

(E) Most typical doughnut eaters are not also bagel eaters.

Typical donut eater = 4 donuts = 680 Cal + 40 gm of fat

Typical bagel eater = 1 bagel = 500 Cal + 2 gm of fat

Adding spreads to bagel raises calorie and fat content to the four-dough nut range.

Main conclusion
As far as total calorie content is concerned, there is very little difference between what a typical dough nut eater and a typical bagel eater consume.

Option A - Incorrect
"health impact" is not relevant to the argument at hand.

Option B - Incorrect
"awareness of calorie and fat content" is not relevant to the argument.

Option C - Incorrect
"health benefit" is not relevant to the argument.

Option D - Correct answer
If he does, then the argument that -- "there is very little difference in calorific content ..." -- is weakened.

Option E - Incorrect
Not relevant. We are comparing the calories that a typical donut eater consumes to those that a bagel eater consumes.

Bumping for discussion. Not a terribly difficult LSAT assumption question, but good practice nonetheless.
