Congress is considering a "National Service" program under which high school graduates who need federal assistance for college would serve for two years in the military or on a community service program rather than receive and repay a government-sponsored loan. Proponents say that it will show the nation's youth that everyone benefiting from the rights of a democratic society must also recognize his or her responsibilities to that society.

Which one of the following points would be most useful to an opponent of the National Service program?

A.Students who choose not to go to college should not be obligated to participate in a National Service program.
B.Women would have fewer choices of positions in the military.
C.Students well-off enough not to need federal financial assistance could forego National Service.
D.The federal assistance offered by a National Service program would not be adequate to completely pay for a college education.
E.Today's youth are greatly lacking in civic values and social responsibility

Have seen this question @ 2 places..OG and Kaplan..both with diff answers!!OG says D while kaplan says C..though i think the answer is D..opinions invited!!

Option 'C' puts a strong argument against the proposal, as it suggests misuse of the program

I'd go with D. The National Service program claims that it'll provide without repay, sufficient financial support for those aspiring to attend college, in return for two years of military or community service. What if, in the end, the money the program provides is insufficient for college education? This could be a very strong point for the opponents who are against such a program.

IMO D.

The argument learly stated that - those who want the funds.
So, the well off students may or may not use it. It's their choice. We need to find a flaw in the stated argument to support an Opponent.

C.Students well-off enough not to need federal financial assistance could forego National Service. [This is supporting the Proponents instead of OPPONENTS. Incorrect]
D.The federal assistance offered by a National Service program would not be adequate to completely pay for a college education. [Why would the students chose this fund if it is inadequate for their college. Correct]

(D) is a strong contender than (C) because there should be a link between the federal assistance by the National service program and the two years of military service or community service.

as BarneyStinson explained....
