I saw Barbara at the race track, and she told me that on the same horse race she made two win bets. She said she bet $10 on Boofer Bear to win at even money, and $5 on Copper Cane to win at odds of 10 to 1. After the race, she went back to the parimutuel window. So one or the other of those two horses must have won the race. Which of the following is NOT an unstated premise of the reasoning above?

(A) The only bets Barbara made on the race were her win bets on Boofer Bear and Copper Cane.
(B) In the race in question, Boofer Bear and Copper Cane did not finish in a dead heat.
(C) Barbara did not return to the parimutuel window after the race for some reason other than cashing a winning ticket.
(D) Barbara’s representation of the bets that she had placed was accurate.
(E) Barbara believed that it was more likely that Boofer Bear would win than Copper Cane.

will go with C here..if she have gone to window for other reason the argument will not stand ...



I think the question stem wants to know which of the following is not an assumption. Since, (C) I feel is an assumption, it'd be incorrect. IMO (E).
