The argument says Virus V --> (causes) Diabetes

Assumption:
1. Diabetes does not cause Virus V to come.
2. Since it is of the form X leads to Y, it means an alternate cause will be valid. So, Something else caused diabetes would be correct here.

(A)The longer the length of time an individual is infected with virus V, the greater the risk that individual will develop atypical diabetes. : This is not an assumption but a restatement of the fact.
(B)Atypical diabetes is a symptom of virus V. : We already know this. Not an Assumption.
(C)Individuals not infected with virus V cannot develop atypical diabetes. : Remember the rule: If p--> Q, then It doesn't mean Not p --> Not Q. So, it is Incorrect
(D)Atypical diabetes does not predispose people to infection from virus V. : As per our Pre thinking, Hence, correct
(E)Specialized treatment for virus V infection will be more effective than the standard course of virus V treatment for people with atypical diabetes. Irrelevant

Here is my take to explain between Choice C(Wrong) and Choice D(Correct).

Premise: People have A will have very high chance of getting B.
Conclusion: B cause A
Ask: conclusion depends on which of the following assumptions?

Choice: C (Wrong) --> No B then No A. The condition is too strict. (Note: disproportionately high rate)

Choice: D (Correct) --> A does not cause B. Since the conclusion is B cause A, we have to make sure that the conclusion do not go the other way around.

in this question both C & D option are having a same meaning.
if i discuss option C, which says individuals not affected with Virus do not develop diabetes, on negation the above statement got modified - individuals affected with virus do not develop diabetes, thus it weakens the conclusion by making the statement either diabetes is parallel developed along side with infection of virus or diabiates might have made individual susceptible to infection
i am clear with option D negation
it would be great help if you can solve this query

Well if u r clear with option D the you should know that C is an option that is very extreme. The conclusion said hat Virus V trigger atypical diabetes. but it never means that Virus is the only way to trigger Diabetes. Option C is very extreme by saying that ppl cant develop diabetes if they ont get Virus...Can u assume this thing? is there anything specific mention this in argument that one cant get Diabetes if not infected by Virus..Virus only trigger...so one can develop diabetes due to various ways and infected with Virus is one of that ways....
Hope its clear

A,B,E are out of scope.
C is an inverse error.
D is a common pattern.
