In March 300 college students turned out in Washington to protest against proposed cuts in student loan funds. Another 350,000 collegians flocked to Florida's sun-drenched beaches during March for "spring break." Since the Florida sun-seekers were more numerous, they were more representative of today's students than those who protested in Washington, and therefore Congress need not heed the appeals of the protesting students.

The argument above makes which of the following assumptions?

(A) The students who vacationed in Florida did not oppose the cutting of student loan funds by Congress.
(B) The students who vacationed in Florida were not in agreement with the opinion of the majority of United States citizens about the proposed cut in loan funds.
(C) The students who protested in Washington were more seriously concerned about their education than were the students who vacationed in Florida.
(D) The students who neither protested in Washington in March nor vacationed in Florida in March are indifferent to governmental policies on education.
(E) The best way to influence congressional opinion about a political issue is to communicate with one's elected representative in Washington.

Its Easy-peasy

Prompt- Lesser students present > therefore congress did not hear the appeal
Assumption - The no. of students present were only concerned

Option "A" clearly delivers the implicit assumption of the prompt

Negate option (A) the statement becomes

Quote:
The students who vacationed in Florida opposed the cutting of student loan funds by Congress.

The highlighted part of the stimulus falls apart, Hence Answer must be (A)
