Columnist: A democratic society cannot function unless strong bonds of mutual trust have formed among its citizens. Only by participation in civic organizations, political parties, and other groups outside the family can such bonds be formed and strengthened. Thus, it is obvious that the widespread reliance on e-mail and Internet social networking for interaction has an inherently corrosive effect on democracy.

Which one of the following is an assumption on which the columnist's argument depends?

a) Civic organizations cannot usefully advance their goals by using social networking.
b) Anyone who relies on e-mail and social networking for interaction is unable to form a strong bond of mutual trust with another citizen.
c) Relying on e-mail and social networking for interaction generally makes people less likely to participate in groups outside their families.
d) People who rely on e-mail and social networking for interaction are generally closer to their families than are those who do not.
e) Meetings and other forms of personal interaction strengthen, rather than weaken, democratic institutions.
