Hi ajaym28, I chose A because, assumption is that students demonstrate poor behaviour in social environment. But when option A is negated, then it means students don't demonstrate the poor behaviour in more social environment hence they don't lack in social skills.

Can you pse post the OE and the source of the Q

Hi,
assumpption A cannot be correct answer as we are not debating reason for being rude. but we have to weaken the conclusion that the student population completely lacks social ethos. B is the closest when it sys that 50000 students are there and one week stay is too less to interact with all these people and make a statement for all of them...
catch word is completely

I went with E since it gives motive for the narrator to generalize even if the population on a whole does not lack social skills.
