The federal government expects hospitals to perform 10,000 organ transplants next year. But it is doubtful that this many donor organ will be available since the number of fatalities resulting from car and motorcycle accidents has been dropping steadily over the past decade.

The argument above makes which of the following assumptions?

(A) A significant number of the organs used in transplants come from people who die in car and motorcycle accidents.
(B) The number of car and motorcycle accidents will increase significantly during the next year.
(C) No more than 10,000 people will be in need of organ transplants during the next year.
(D) In the past the federal government's estimates of the number of organ transplants needed during a given year have been very unreliable.
(E) For any given fatality resulting from a car or motorcycle accident, there is a hospital in the vicinity in need' of an organ for a transplant

Asumption is accidents give a big pool of donors. this is a missing linking between premise and conclusion

(A) A significant number of the organs used in transplants come from people who die in car and motorcycle accidents. Stated what we are looking for
(B) The number of car and motorcycle accidents will increase significantly during the next year. it reverses hence weakens the conclusion
(C) No more than 10,000 people will be in need of organ transplants during the next year. No effect
(D) In the past the federal government's estimates of the number of organ transplants needed during a given year have been very unreliable. Again it has no link with accidents
(E) For any given fatality resulting from a car or motorcycle accident, there is a hospital in the vicinity in need' of an organ for a transplantThis does not connect with the premise
