E is correct. Here's why:

(A) Only public schools require immunization.-->
(B) Children are not already properly immunized. --> irrelevant
(C) If not immunized, most children will fall victim to disease. --> irrelevant; too broad
(D) Immunization is effective enough to justify its cost to the taxpayer. --> outside bounds of the argument
(E) Immunization is the only precaution necessary to guarantee a child's health. --> Correct; establishes clear link between immunization and ensuring child's health

The government has made great strides in implementing immunization in public school systems despite its cost. When all children are properly immunized, we will be able to ensure their health.

Which of the following identifies an assumption in the author's argument?

Only public schools require immunization.
Children are not already properly immunized.
If not immunized, most children will fall victim to disease.
Immunization is effective enough to justify its cost to the taxpayer.
Immunization is the only precaution necessary to guarantee a child's health.

Okay, In the argument it says if we immunize children, we will ensure good health. What must be underlined assumption here:
In children, if we give immune injections we are sure that they will not get affected by disease.
A. Out of scope, this doesn't answer anything.
B. Think, does this answers our query. If they are given immunization and that is not proper then we won't reach our conclusion. This casts even more doubt on the governments plan.
C. Negate this option: if immunized, Most children do not fall victim. This leaves a gap of some children that may fall victim. Argument fails.
D. Cost is not the subject matter of discussion.
E. This perfectly fills the gap. If this is the only way to guarantee childs health our work is done.

the argument structure in this question is not obvious. The first half of the second setence is the premise and the other half is the conclusion => E is the assumption.
The first sentence just gives out a context of the argument.

if we do negation test for the argument hold true then the answer must be E.

I solved the question in this way.
The government has made great strides in implementing immunization in public school systems despite its cost. - Premise

When all children are properly immunized, we will be able to ensure their health - Conclusion.

Deconstruct the argument:

If you see the Premise - Conclusion, there is hijack in the conclusion (New terms). Health.

Goal :So the missing statement should Connect Immunization and Health.

Option E does the same & Negating the E will shatter the conclusion.

Hope that Helps :-)
