Either restrictions must be placed on freedom of speech or certain subversive elements in society will use it to destroy this country. Since to allow the latter to occur is unconscionable, we must restrict freedom of speech.

The conclusion above is unsound because

A. subversives do not in fact want to destroy the country
B. the author places too much importance on the freedom of speech
C. the author fails to consider an accommodation between the two alternatives
D. the meaning of "freedom of speech" has not been defined
E. subversives are a true threat to our way of life

We have to prove the conclusion unsound. I think it is C. There can, in fact, be more than two scenarios.
