The government has proposed a plan requiring young people to perform services to correct various current social ills, especially those in education and housing. Government service, however, should be compelled only in response to a direct threat to the nation's existence. For that reason, the proposed program should not be implemented. Which one of the following is an assumption on which the government depends?
(A) Government-required service by young people cannot correct all social ills.
(B) The nation’s existence is directly threatened only in times of foreign attack.
(C) Crises in education and housing constitute a threat to the nation's existence.
(D) The nation's young people believe that current social ills pose no direct threat to the nation's existence.
(E) Some of the social ills that currently afflict the nation do not pose a direct threat to the nation's existence.

If the social ills pose a direct threat to the nation's existence, then due to above reason, the proposed program would have been implemented. But it has not been.

Definitely E

Premises 1)
The government has proposed a plan requiring young people to perform services to correct various current social ills, especially those in education and housing
Premises 2)
Government service should be compelled only in response to a direct threat to the nation's existence

Conclusion
the proposed program should not be implemented.

Assumption:(==>for not implementing the plan)
from premises 2==> Program doesn't solve the issue which is a threat to nation's existence.
what issue? social ills for which program was proposed.

Which clearly E implies => As social ills are not nation's threat, plan proposed to correct the social ills was not not implemented.

It's E as denying option E breaks the conclusion of the argument.
