ExBenton Motor Company has developed a driver monitoring system that will warn the driver by flashing lights, and warning sounds if the driver is not paying attention to the roads ahead, or a dangerous situation is detected. A spokeswoman for the company claims that the new system will make its new cars safer.

The argument above assumes which of the following?
A. The new system will be commercially successful.
B. ExBenton Motor Company is likely to sell more cars if the new feature is available to the public.
C. People unfamiliar with the new system could become distracted or confused by the system's flashing lights and warning sounds.
D. Drivers of cars equipped with the new system are likely to know how to respond to the warning lights and flashing sounds to avert danger.
E. Similar driver monitoring systems have been proven to improve safety in both testing and on real-life conditions.

ExBenton Motor Company has developed a driver monitoring system that will warn the driver by flashing lights, and warning sounds if the driver is not paying attention to the roads ahead, or a dangerous situation is detected. A spokeswoman for the company claims that the new system will make its new cars safer.

The argument above assumes which of the following?

A. The new system will be commercially successful. -Irrelevant. We are not concerned with the business made by the company
B. ExBenton Motor Company is likely to sell more cars if the new feature is available to the public. -Irrelevant. We are not concerned with the business made by the company
C. People unfamiliar with the new system could become distracted or confused by the system's flashing lights and warning sounds. -This weakens the argument. It will not make the car more safer.
D. Drivers of cars equipped with the new system are likely to know how to respond to the warning lights and flashing sounds to avert danger. -CORRECT. If the drivers know how to handle the new system, then they will be truly safe, thus proving the usefulness and safety of the new system.
E. Similar driver monitoring systems have been proven to improve safety in both testing and on real-life conditions. -The argument doesn't use any analogy. Anyways, we are not concerned with other driving systems, since they can be better or worse than the system about which the argument is.

D is the answer..
A---Argument is not bothered about commercially success .the main point is safety --out of scope
B--similar to A
C--opposite -weakener
D--yes , new system will only warn the driver .he must know how to react in the situation to avoid danger .
E --kind of strengthener but not a assumption ..

help: during assumption questions, if you NEGATE the A/Cs, you should be able to "BREAK" the argument, correct?

if you negate (C), it reads "people FAMILIAR with the new system could become distracted or confused by the system's flashing lights and warning sounds". <-- this sounds like it BREAKS the idea that these new cars will become safer.

is there something i'm missing here??
