The popular belief that to be eloquent a person needs a vast vocabulary is wrong.
On the contrary, people with large vocabularies have no incentive for, and tend not to engage in, the kind of creative linguistic self-expression that is required when no available words seem adequate.

Which one of the following is an assumption made in the argument?

A When people are truly eloquent, they have the capacity to express themselves in situations in which their vocabularies seem inadequate.
B People who are able to express themselves creatively in new situations have little incentive to acquire large vocabularies.
C The most eloquent people are people who have large vocabularies but also are able to express themselves creatively when the situation demands it.
D In educating people to be more eloquent, it would be futile to try to increase the size of their vocabularies.
E In unfamiliar situations, even people with large vocabularies often do not have specifically suitable words available.

Argument says that for people having vast vocabularies are not eloquent as they cannot express themselves in situation where words seem inadequate

So for person to be eloquent,he has ability to express themselves in situation where words seem inadequate

A correctly states this

Other choices are quite extreme and talking about unfamiliar situation,educating,most eloquent type of concerns which are not main point of argument

Give kudos if it helps
