Due to an obscure technicality in food labeling known as the batter-coating rule, French fries are legally considered fresh vegetables. The batter-coating rule stipulates that any vegetable that has been processed – such as a cucumber that has been waxed or a strawberry that has been sweetened – is still considered fresh as long as it is perishable, and French fries are the result of processing a vegetable.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

A. French fries are healthy.
B. French fries are unhealthy.
C. French fries are perishable.
D. French fries are waxed and sweetened.
E. The potato industry lobbied heavily to redesignate the French fry as a vegetable.

Official Answer Veritas Prep :

Many Assumption questions feature a conclusion with a significant new element: a phrase or component not mentioned in any of the premises supporting that conclusion. If such is in the case in an Assumption question, the correct answer usually features that new element and links it to the existing premises. In this case, the new element in the conclusion is something is fresh as long as it is PERISHABLE, but no other premises state that French fries are perishable, so we are unable to prove that it is fresh without such evidence.
(C) supplies that missing link, making the conclusion possible, so it is the best answer choice.
