C. The state-controlled media have ceased any mention of the demonstrations, leaving many citizens outside the capital with no way of knowing that demonstrations continue.

You must look for something to explain why the people could still support the movement but are not able to be present on the streets, it looks that only C support this strategy.

D. There have not recently been any antigovernment demonstrations in cities other than the capital.

E. A recent sharp decrease in unemployment has led to increased popular support for the government.

Conclusion: the decline in attendance does not indicate that popular support for the opposition’s demands is dropping.

We are asked to explain the cause to explain the discrepancy. We should search for a statement which says that support did not for opposition demands.

a: the opposition’s demands have not changed during the period when the street demonstrations have been mounted.
This does not explain anything regarding support. Wrong answer

b: No foreign governments have expressed any support for the opposition’s demands.
Completely out of scope

c: The state-controlled media have ceased any mention of the demonstrations, leaving many citizens outside the capital with no way of knowing that demonstrations continue. This explains the reason why public is not turning up for the event. They are not aware of it. This is the correct choice.

D. There have not recently been any anti-government demonstrations in cities other than the capital.
Completely out of scope

E. A recent sharp decrease in unemployment has led to increased popular support for the government.
This does not explain anything regarding reduction in the number of people.

the question is between dwindling attendence and support for demands

A. the opposition’s demands have not changed during the period when the street demonstrations have been mounted.
opposition demands not changing does not quantify anything. may be the demands have lost its sheen

B. No foreign governments have expressed any support for the opposition’s demands.
foreign governments support is out of context

C. The state-controlled media have ceased any mention of the demonstrations, leaving many citizens outside the capital with no way of knowing that demonstrations continue.this gives us a reason for less attendence even though the support remains.. correct

D. There have not recently been any antigovernment demonstrations in cities other than the capital.
out of context

E. A recent sharp decrease in unemployment has led to increased popular support for the government
this rather states opposite

ans C
