In addition to the labor and materials used to make wine, the reputation of the vineyard where the grapes originate plays a role in determining the price of the finished wine. Therefore, an expensive wine is not always a good wine.

Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) The price of a bottle of wine should be a reflection of the wine's quality.

(B) Price is never an accurate indication of the quality of a bottle of wine.

(C) The reputation of a vineyard does not always indicate the quality of its wines.

(D) The reputation of a vineyard generally plays a greater role than the quality of its grapes in determining its wines' prices.

(E) Wines produced by lesser-known vineyards generally are priced to reflect accurately the wines' quality.

Asides Labour and materials used, reputation also determines price...

if price is high, it doesn't mean quality is high. hence if reputation is good or bad, doesn't mean quality is high or low. Ans. C

(E) Wines produced by lesser-known vineyards generally are priced to reflect accurately the wines' quality.

Pre-thinking:

Price is dependent on: Labor, material and reputation of wine yard.
Conclusion: expensive is not always good

let's say expensive is always good: This means that there are no other factors apart from the 3 listed above which will impact quality.

So, My answer would be "anything which indicates that there are other reasons apart from the 3 listed above which define quality"

a) opposite to my pre-thinking
b) somewhat similar (But it is rejecting price altogether. doesn't match the tone of the argument)
c) somewhat similar (contender as this means high reputation or high price is not always high quality)
d) different from pre-thinking
e) different from pre-thinking

After answering couple assumptions questions, i saw pattern that author is finding an answer that break the argument. For this answer, the passage claims that depending where the vineyard is, the price will be different. So if we assume that the vineyard does not determine the price, this make the argument wrong
