d) chief executives obtain information about problems at lower levels from the no source other than their subordinates

2.Identify the premise and the argument.
4.read the option and do the process of elemination.
the D answer choice correctly negatres the possiblity of an alternat reason and thus strongly supports the argument.

Because no employee wants to be associated with bad news in the eyes of a superior, information about serious problems at lower levels is progressively softened and distorted as it goes up each step in the management hierarchy. the chief executive is therefore, less well informed about problems at lower levels than are his or her subordinates at those levels.

Assumption: CEO receive their information only through their sub-ordinators. Because if they would have been receiving through other sources, they would have had some more clear picture regarding it.

The conclusion drawn above is based on the assumption that
a) problems should be solved at levels in the management hierarchy at which they occur
This statement is giving a solution and not an assumption.

b) employees should be rewarded for accurately reporting problems to their superiors
This again gives a solution rather than an assumption

c) problems-solving ability is more important at higher levels than it is at lower levels of the management hierarchy
Out of context. Gives a conclusion and not an assumption/

d) chief executives obtain information about problems at lower levels from the no source other than their subordinates
Refer to my assumption

e) some employees are more are concerned about truth than about the way they are perceived by their superiors
Out of context. We do not care about what they perceive.

Solution:

The argument assumes that there is no any other option that the CEO has to get the information at low-level other than the reporting from employees.

Option D provides the same information mentioned above. If Option D is negated, the argument falls apart and therefore is the assumption.
