People who do not believe that others distrust them are confident in their own abilities, so people who tend to trust others think of a difficult task as a challenge rather than a threat, since this is precisely how people who are confident in their own abilities regard such tasks.

The conclusion above follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

(A) People who believe that others distrust them tend to trust others.
(B) Confidence in one’s own abilities gives one confidence in the trustworthiness of others.
(C) People who tend to trust others do not believe that others distrust them.
(D) People who are not threatened by difficult tasks tend to find such tasks challenging
(E) People tend to distrust those who they believe lack self-confidence.

EDIT:posted E

The conclusion above follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

(A) People who believe that others distrust them tend to trust others. -> this is reverse answer OUT direct oopposite is reqd and said in passage
(B) Confidence in one’s own abilities gives one confidence in the trustworthiness of others. -> this is way too generic OUT and also viceversa is implied in argument
(C) People who tend to trust others do not believe that others distrust them. -> this is perfect ,here in the argument author relates these two people only IMO ANSWER
(D) People who are not threatened by difficult tasks tend to find such tasks challenging -> challenging rather than threat ,its not if the task is not threat then challenging OUT

Clearly its C!!!

Agree with C.

People who do not believe that others distrust -> confident people
People who trust others -> difficult task as challenge.

There is a missing link between the two premises above for conclusion to be true. C does that.

this is an LSAT question. I've found that the LSAT questions are representative of the toughest GMAT questions

Really? I've tried a few myself, and I think LSAT questions draw far fetched assumptions most of the time. Goes way beyond the scope of the passage - something GMAT doesn't do most of the time.

So is it waste of time to practice LSAT questions ?

I'm not saying that - I think it's a matter of preference. if you're doing great in the GMAT CRs because you're practicing LSAT CRs at the same time, then why fix something that's not broken? Just keep doing what you're doing

I'm sure studying LSAT CRs has its benefits and drawbacks.

I definintely find LSAT CR and RC more of a challenge, but not necessarily far fetched. A weightlifter who has been practicing with 500lbs will easily lift 300lbs in competition !

Sure, but why try to lift 500 lbs when I can barely lift 100 lbs .

It all depends where you're at in the game I guess.

its a verbal challenge like the quant challenges offered here at gmatclub. It just makes you think harder. like you said, it all depends on where you are. My goal is to increase my verbal score. I want to be able to laugh at anything the GMAT throws at me
