Do I have to find out flaw or assumption?
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Nutritionists have recommended that people eat more fiber. Advertisements for a new fiber-supplement pill state only that it contains “44 percent fiber”.
The advertising claim is misleading in its selection of information on which to focus if which one of the following is true?
(A) There are other products on the market that are advertised as providing fiber as a dietary supplement.
(B) Nutritionists base their recommendation on medical findings that dietary fiber protects against some kinds of cancer.
(C) It is possible to become addicted to some kinds of advertised pills, such as sleeping pills and painkillers.
(D) The label of the advertised product recommends taking 3 pills every day.
(E) The recommended daily intake of fiber is 20 to 30 grams, and the pill contains one-third gram.

I'm going for option E as well. The question is looking for an assumption. You're looking for an unstated premise in order to make the argument more believable.

So, can I rephrase this question as which of the following assumption can make the conclusion flawed?

You can rephrase the question as:
"Which of the following, if true, weakens the argument."
