(A) Certain psychotherapists practice age discrimination.
This isn't the main intention of the argument

(B) Elderly people are better able to benefit from psychotherapy than are younger people.
The argument doesn't mention who's better able to benefit

(C) Elderly people should not be reluctant to undergo psychotherapy.
Yes,
"some elderly people feel discouraged about trying psychotherapy. They should not be" - THis gives the evidence of the conclusion


(D) Characteristics associated with maturity are important factors in psychotherapy’s success.
This is just a reasoning, but not the conclusion.

(E) Elderly people are less inclined to try psychotherapy than are younger people.
Out of scope

Should be C
