Support of all major parties = Passing of the bill

Thus, None but option (A) augments the reasoning in the highlighted part of the stimulus.

Hey sahilkak --

You're right, (C) is really close, but take a look at the argument presented: All major party leaders oppose the bill, therefore it will not pass. You're looking for support for the bill not passing.

(C)'s argument is that if all of them do support the bill, it will pass. However, giving proof that a bill will pass doesn't mean that the opposite means that the bill won't pass (which is what you're trying to support). Based only on that piece of information, the bill could still pass if the leaders don't support it if every other person votes for it -- (C) doesn't exclude that possibility.

(A) is much more clearly support for the argument. If even one of the party leaders fails to support the bill, it won't pass. Therefore if all of them don't support the bill, it will also not pass since the claim in the argument fits exactly with the information given in (A). (Think about it as a Venn diagram -- the argument fits in to (A) all the way as a circle within a circle and so it guarantees the argument)
