One of the factors that the IRS considers when deciding whether to audit a tax return is the dollar amount of the deduction claimed for business travel. Salespeople and self-employed entrepreneurs often claim large deductions for mileage on their tax returns. If the IRS does decide to audit such a return, one of the things the auditors expect to see is a mileage log. Unfortunately, keeping mileage logs upto- date can become a burden, and many busy people end up neglecting their mileage logs. The best solution to this problem is an electronic mileage log that runs on a personal digital assistant.

Which of the following is an assumption made in drawing the conclusion above?

(A) The cost of the electronic mileage log is not too much for salespeople or the self-employed.
(B) Keeping electronic mileage logs upto- date is less of a burden than traditional pen and paper logs.
(C) The IRS expects to see a mileage log whenever a large mileage deduction is claimed.
(D) Salespeople and the self-employed already have personal digital assistants on which to run the electronic mileage logs.
(E) Electronic mileage logs are preferred by the IRS because they can’t be falsified.

The passage is saying people donot prefer doing one thing, then lets do the other thing.

Assumption is: People would prefer or more prefer the second thing than using the 1st thing.

(A) The cost of the electronic mileage log is not too much for salespeople or the self-employed. : Cost of OFS
(B) Keeping electronic mileage logs upto- date is less of a burden than traditional pen and paper logs. Same as what we thought.
(C) The IRS expects to see a mileage log whenever a large mileage deduction is claimed. OFS
(D) Salespeople and the self-employed already have personal digital assistants on which to run the electronic mileage logs. We are bothered about people. OFS
(E) Electronic mileage logs are preferred by the IRS because they can’t be falsified. Ok, but no bearing with the conclusion

We have no information on how much these salespeople/sales employed can afford
(B) Keeping electronic mileage logs upto- date is less of a burden than traditional pen and paper logs.
Yes. The conclusion talks about the traditional method being a burden. The basic assumption that the conclusion stands upon is that the new electronic mileage is not a burden or less of a burden.[/color]
(C) The IRS expects to see a mileage log whenever a large mileage deduction is claimed.
The IRS needs a complete mileage log. Not only when large mileage deduction is claimed
(D) Salespeople and the self-employed already have personal digital assistants on which to run the electronic mileage logs.
If they have assistants, will it become less of a burden? we do not know. Incomplete info
(E) Electronic mileage logs are preferred by the IRS because they can’t be falsified.
Not mentioned that they cant be falsified. Cant make this assumption
