Bureaucrat: The primary, constant goal of an ideal bureaucracy is to define and classify all possible problems and set out regulations regarding each eventuality. Also, an ideal bureaucracy provides an appeal procedure for any complaint. If a complaint reveals an unanticipated problem, the regulations are expanded to cover the new issue, and for this reason an ideal bureaucracy will have an ever-expanding system of regulations.

Which one of the following is an assumption the bureaucrat’s argument requires?

(A) An ideal bureaucracy will provide an appeal procedure for complaints even after it has defined and classified all possible problems and set out regulations regarding each eventuality.
(B) For each problem that an ideal bureaucracy has defined and classified, the bureaucracy has received at least one complaint revealing that problem.
(C) An ideal bureaucracy will never be permanently without complaints about problems that are not covered by that bureaucracy’s regulations.
(D) An ideal bureaucracy can reach its primary goal if, but only if, its system of regulations is always expanding to cover problems that had not been anticipated.
(E) Any complaint that an ideal bureaucracy receives will reveal an unanticipated problem that the bureaucracy is capable of defining and classifying.

Ans:C
(C) An ideal bureaucracy will never be permanently without complaints about problems that are not covered by that bureaucracy’s regulations.

Conclusion:an ideal bureaucracy will have an ever-expanding system of regulations.
So make this conclusion tru the author must assumes that people will have to come with new problems that are not covered. That is in C.

Option D is too extreme( "if but only if"). As per the passage, The primary, constant goal of an ideal bureaucracy is to define and classify all possible problems and set out regulations regarding each eventuality.
In the conclusion author says ideal bureaucracy will have an ever-expanding system of regulations.
So,the goal is to complete categorizing all possible needs for regulations. And having ever-expanding regulations goes contrary to that goal

Why can't the answer be 'E'. Is my reasoning for the answer not being 'E' correct?

- Statement E just repeats the statement 'if a complaint reveals an unanticipated problem(something that the bureaucracy is not able to define and classify), then it will set new regulation to deal with it.

Is this reasoning correct for the answer not being E?

Too strong.From the stimulus we can not say that every complain will reveal an unanticipated problem, it just tells us that if a complaint reveals, (there is uncertainty out here), then the regulations will be expanded to cover the issue.

Hi

This is option (E) Any complaint that an ideal bureaucracy receives will reveal an unanticipated problem that the bureaucracy is capable of defining and classifying.

Do you really need that "Any" complaint will reveal an unanticipated problem? The complaint could reveal also an anticipated one, right? So that is why (E) is wrong.
