Ms. Campbell: Requiring students to pay for extracurricular activities will not make our program better. It would only produce an unequal distribution of students along socioeconomic lines, and that would defeat the purpose of the program, which is to make these activities available to all students.

Ms. Martin: But these programs are being cut all the time due to lack of funding.

The best assessment of the role of Ms. Martin's response in this argument is that it
a.offers additional evidence for the correctness of Ms. Campbell's conclusion.
b.states one of Ms. Campbell's unspoken assumptions.
d.identifies a weakness in Ms. Campbell's rationale.
e.implies that Ms. Campbell's conclusion is correct, but not for the reasons given.

The argument points out why the suggestion made by Campbell is difficult to realize in reality. D says it.
A - No correction involved. Instead it is about a point not considered in analyzing.
B - Conclusion by Campbell is that the program be made available for all. Assumption same as Martin will not support this.
C - No discussion on conclusion
E - Conclusion verification is not carried out by Martin.

Ms. Campbell Conclusion : Fee for extracurricular activities will not make program better.
Reason : It would only produce an unequal distribution of students along socioeconomic lines, and that would defeat the purpose of the program, which is to make these activities available to all students.
Assumption : Fee charged will be unaffordable to different strata of society.
OR
Funding is not required to run the program .
Option E directly weakens the above assumption

Option C is incorrect because Ms. Martin did not contradict (oppose) Campbell's claim about the purpose
She is just saying, purpose will not be met anyways if programs get cut due to lack of funding

I am still confused. The purpose of the program is to make these activities available to all students. Isn't Ms. Martin contradicting this claim by saying that the purpose of the program is already not being met?

Think of it this way:

Martin is contradicting Campbell’s reasoning but not purpose of the program.
Yes ,Purpose is to make these activities available to all students.

Campbell says Purpose will not be met if Students are required to pay

Martin says: Purpose will not be met if program is cut
No disagreement on purpose but there is disagreement on ways to meet it.

Ms. Martin: But these programs are being cut all the time due to lack of funding.

The best assessment of the role of Ms. Martin's response in this argument is that it

a.offers additional evidence for the correctness of Ms. Campbell's conclusion.Ms.campbell's conclusion may be right but if the programs are being cut then the programs will be useless in fulfilling the purpose of the program.

b.states one of Ms. Campbell's unspoken assumptions.Ms. Martin provided an entirely new point which is not related to the argument provided by Ms. Campbell.
c.contradicts Ms. Campbell's claim about the purpose of the program. Ms. Martin does not contradict the claim by Ms. Campbell

d.identifies a weakness in Ms. Campbell's rationale.The point provided by Ms. Martin is the point missed by Ms. Campbell and this is the correct point.

e.implies that Ms. Campbell's conclusion is correct, but not for the reasons given. The reason provided by Ms. Campbell and by Ms. Martin are entirely different.
