The original argument goes like this:
If you've made a selection, and if its wrong, then let it be criticized as wrong. Else if its right, then they should not emphasize that they're correct, and believing in theirselves and evoking a feeling of disbelief should be good enough idea.

A is the closest.

I was stuck between a and c.

can anyone explain why c is wrong?Choice c deals with the 'sencerity' aspect discussed in the stem.The stem says that one must not defend oneself on the grounds of sencerity, rather look for more rational approach.this is what c says.

can anyone care to elaborate??:shock:

A.

The original says either don't say anything or provide argumentation, and not an assertion
A parallels this.
