Answer should be C.
A - Argument does not talk anything about "recent year". The argument just says that economic condition effects the perception- INCORRECT.
B - This is a stretch. There may be some people who avoid because of some other reason. - INCORRECT
C - CORRECT because author assumes some relation.
D - Out of Scope.
E - If this is assumed then the argument actually fails - INCORRECT

I am really confused between B and C. Both are the assumptions made by the author. Although B is itself mentioned in the passage, it is an assumption nevertheless. Please explain how to eliminate B

The argument above assumes that

A) the perceived likelihood of job availability has decreased in recent years. -No information is given regarding recent years. Out of scope.
B) all those who avoid graduate and professional school during an economic slump do so because of the perceived lack of future jobs. -"All those" makes the statement exaggerated. State of economy is not the only reason to avoid enrolment.
C) perceptions of the likelihood of job availability are related to the state of the economy. -Correct.
D) those who enroll in graduate and professional schools during a strong economy help increase the economy's strength. -Out of scope
E) graduate and professional programs admit fewer students during recessions. -This opposite of what is stated in the passage.

Enrollment in graduate and professional programs tend to be high in a strong economy and much lower during recessions.The perceived likelihood of future job availability,therefore affects people's willingness to pass up immediate earning potential in order to invest in carrer-related training.

Lets' look at options
B) all those who avoid graduate and professional school during an economic slump do so because of the perceived lack of future jobs.
C) perceptions of the likelihood of job availability are related to the state of the economy.

In the stem, we have high enrollment not highest or extraordinarily higher. Based on this wording, we can't claim about all persons avoiding graduate and professional schools. If we just focus on the stem, option B is out of scope as no information is available about these persons. There are several other possibilities for people to avoid graduate and professional school.

look at choice b
try to focus on the thing which directly affect the argument. choice b dose not directly affect the argument here and is consider irrelevant. RELEVANT is rather hard. if you find two close answers, one must be a trap. avoid the trap by focusing on which information affect directly question.

B is too extreme, C is perfect as it presents the generalized view

First of this is an assumption question so we can use negation test , so let us use negation test here

A is not related to the argument as it talks about the state of the economy now present .
B This may be true but this is not the assumption as there can be other reasons for doing so such as increased competition for the colleges and lack of financial backing for the degree.
C This destroys the argument in negation test thus this is our answer.
D This option is out of scope ; It is good that they help to increase economy's strength but this action certainly does not help out argument :-D
E Upon negation this choice does not destroy the argument as if they admit more students but the number of students applying are still less

B is not correct because it rephrases the conclusion. C is better because it assumes the connection between the economic slump and the perceptions about the future financial/ job opportunities. There are many ways to make assumption and connect the information in the argument, like in this case, is one of those, I think (๑・̑◡・̑๑)
