(A) If scientists communicate with the public, many young people will become excited enough about science to resolve to become professional scientists. It makes an error in reverse deduction. Good Communication is a necessary condition to spark excitement. It may not be sufficient in itself.

(B) The extent to which a national scientific community flourishes depends principally on the number of young people who become excited enough about science to resolve to become professional scientists.The passage doesn't state that the success is proportional to the "number of people" who become excited.

(C) No nation can have a successful economy unless at some point scientists have communicated well with the public. Correct Answer. Good Comm. between the scientists & public is a necessary condition to spark that excitement. So, it must have occurred at some point.

(D) It is essential to any nation 's economy that most of the young people in that nation who are excited about science become professional scientists. I fell for it. The keyword here is "most". The passage says "many".

(E) An essential component of success in any scientific endeavor is good communication between the scientists. involved in that endeavor and the public.Out of scope - It says "any scientific endeavor. The passage talks about a successful economy. "

Science teacher opens the statement telling us " A flourishing national scientific community is essential to a successful economy"-Conclusion

Ends the argument by saying
"Good communication between scientists and the public is necessary to spark that excitement"

So we need to find a answer which combines both of these statements as the assumption of teacher will be dependent on it and 'C' exactly does that.
Keep in mind that our end goal is to support the conclusion. All other options are traps such as A,B
