Several critics have claimed that any contemporary poet who writes formal poetry—poetry that is rhymed and metered—is performing a politically conservative act. This is plainly false. Consider Molly Peacock and Marilyn Hacker, two contemporary poets whose poetry is almost exclusively formal and yet who are themselves politically progressive feminists.

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

A. No one who is a feminist is also politically conservative.
B. No poet who writes unrhymed or unmetered poetry is politically conservative.
C. No one who is politically progressive is capable of performing a politically conservative act.
D. Anyone who sometimes writes poetry that is not politically conservative never writes poetry that is politically conservative.
E. The content of a poet’s work, not the work’s form, is the most decisive factor in determining what political consequences, if any, the work will have.

IMO Only C if is logically correct, then the conclusion stands.
Negating C, breaks the conclusion.

C: "No one who is politically progressive is capable of performing a politically conservative act." This tells the perfect assumption that one person can not have two political views. If you negate this statement you break the conclusion that politically progressive feminists can not write such.

E is incorrect because the question doesn't state anything specific about the content of the 2 poets' work.Why is the critics' claim false?Because the poets THEMSELVES are politically progressive.So, making any such conclusions about their work will be out of scope.All we know about their poetry is that it is almost exclusively formal.
