The book To Save the Earth is so persuasive that no one who reads it can fail to heed its environmentalist message. Members of the Earth Association have given away 2,000 copies in the last month. Thus the Earth Association can justly claim credit for at least 2,000 people in one month converted to the environmentalist cause.
Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
(A) No other environmental organization gave away copies of To Save the Earth during the month in which the Earth Association gave away its 2,000 copies.
(B) The people to whom the Earth Association gave copies of To Save the Earth would not have been willing to pay to receive it from the Earth Association.
(C) The copies of To Save the Earth given away by members of the Earth Association were printed on recycled paper.
(D) None of those who received To Save the Earth from a member of the Earth Association were already committed to the environmentalist cause when they received this book.
(E) Every recipient of To Save the Earth will embrace the environmental program advocated by the Earth Association.

IMO D

The book To Save the Earth is so persuasive that no one who reads it can fail to heed its environmentalist message. Members of the Earth Association have given away 2,000 copies in the last month. Thus the Earth Association can justly claim credit for at least 2,000 people in one month converted to the environmentalist cause.
Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
(A) No other environmental organization gave away copies of To Save the Earth during the month in which the Earth Association gave away its 2,000 copies --> negating this: there are other environmental organization giving away copies of To Save the Earth during the month in which the Earth Association gave away its 2,000 copies --> not weaken the argument -->loser
(B) The people to whom the Earth Association gave copies of To Save the Earth would not have been willing to pay to receive it from the Earth Association -->weaken
(C) The copies of To Save the Earth given away by members of the Earth Association were printed on recycled paper -->irrelevant
(D) None of those who received To Save the Earth from a member of the Earth Association were already committed to the environmentalist cause when they received this book -->the best
(E) Every recipient of To Save the Earth will embrace the environmental program advocated by the Earth Association -->too general

I'll go with (D), if some of the 2000 already converted prior to the association's actions, then they can't claim credit for the conversion.
