Tax reformer: The proposed tax reform legislation is being criticized by political groups on the right for being too specific and by political groups on the left for being too vague. Since one and the same statement cannot be both too specific and too vague, the criticisms just go to show that the legislation is framed just as it should be.

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

(A) It is rare for political groups both on the rightand on the left to criticize a particular tax reform proposal.

(B) Even an overly specific or vague tax reform proposal can be implemented in a way that produces beneficial results.

(C) The proposed legislation has not been criticized by any group that does not identify itself with the political right or the political left.

(D) The proposed legislation as it is framed was not meant to satisfy either political groups on the right or political groups on the left.

(E) The proposed legislation is not made up of a set of statements some of which are overly specific and some of which are overly vague.

Premise : Since one and the same statement cannot be both too specific and too vague....--and using this Premise , it is giving the conclusion that the criticisms just go to show that the legislation is framed just as it should be.

We have to assume E here...it says that the legislation is not made of set of statements some of which are overly specific and some of which are overly vague.if that is the case , both political groups on the left and right are correct in a way and this will cause doubt on veracity of argument..

Pre-thinking
In what scenario would the proposed tax reform NOT be just given that some interpreted it as too vague and some as too specific?
What if one of the sides mis-interpreted the statements? What if its actually vague or actually specific?

Assumption: The statements were not misinterpreted by the leftist or the rightist.

Answer E matches the pre-thinking.
