Country A will play country B in a friendly football match tomorrow. The most important player of country A has fallen ill with diarrhoea this morning. Therefore, country B has a better chance to win tomorrow.

Which of the following is an assumption involved in the argument above?


A. Country A has no other star player than the one who has fallen ill. Maybe, or maybe not. We know that the most important player is ill and country B has better chance to win. So it's irrelevant, knowing that country B has more chances to win anyway.

B. The football teams of countries A and B are roughly of the same calibre. If that's true, with all the players the team would have the same probability to win. With the best player of country A out, country B has a better chance to stand out

C. The football team of country B includes many internationally acclaimed players. irrelevant

D. The second most important player of country A has fallen ill with diarrhoea too and his condition is as bad as his comrade's. Country A could be stronger than country B anyway

E. The most important player of team B has been injured in a road accident this morning and is ruled out from the match tomorrow. This weakens the question, it is not an assumption

Great question!

This could easily be a 700+ level question with tricker options for D and E.
