Sustainable software is software that has been customized to meet the requirements of specific users, and many engineers in the field of information technology have been receiving accolades for producing sustainable software. But since one of the ideal requirements for software is that it be flexible, software engineers should concentrate more on the flexibility of the software. For this reason, software should not be made sustainable.

Which of the following is the assumption on which the argument depends?

A) A large number of engineers in the field of information technology want to produce sustainable software.

B) Some of the students developing sustainable software are already or will soon be engineers in the field of information technology.

C) If some action is not taken immediately, then sustainable software will become the primary product developed by software suppliers.

D) Specific users requiring sustainable software constitute a small proportion of the software industry.

E) At least some kinds of sustainable software are not flexible.

Well option E is the only one that is in context of the argument.

So E is the correct answer.

Pre thinking is that if software has to be made flexible it should not be sustainable.
This is what has been assumed in the argument.

E highlights the same. If you negate E the argument will fall apart.
