In a theocracy, politicians not only have to understand the laws of the land, but also the edicts of the god(s) or religion that their society follows. This type of understanding is difficult because it combines secular knowledge with the requisite of a more abstract and spiritual knowledge. Many people cannot adequately fulfill this dual requirement, which is why there are fewer total politicians in all the theocratic governments throughout the world than in all the democratic governments.

For the argument to be logically correct, it must make which of the following assumptions?
(A) There are not more democratic nations than theocratic nations in the world.
(B) Theocratic politicians need to assess the spirituality of their polity when making decisions.
(C) Theocratic nations satisfy the needs of their people better by using fewer politicians.
(D) Democratic nations require a larger number of politicians on average due to the numerous factions that their politicians represent.
(E) The edicts of any sort of god are not knowable or understandable as they apply to politics.

Conclusion: "Many people cannot adequately fulfill this dual requirement, which is why there are fewer total politicians in all the theocratic governments throughout the world than in all the democratic governments."

To make this conclusion logical, we need to know whether fewer politicians are because of complexity of Theocracy or of some other reasons.
Only A.claryfy this logic.

A is the answer
