Those who condemn the governor for being unsympathetic to the plight of the automobile industry are merely using that allegation as a smokescreen for their own partisan politics.The citizen who believes their charges fails to realize that a politician may sometimes appear to be lacking compassion for a special interest group when, in reality, she is just trying to implement a public policy that is beneficial to great numbers of people representing diverse interests.

Which of the foll ,if true,provides the greatest support for the assertion?

a) Sometimes,it is difficult to distinguish between insensitivity to special interest grps & public spirited devotion to broader concerns.

b)some of the governor's harshest critics are members of the automobile workers' unions and & politics with strong ties in the automotive industry.

c) Sometimes a politician who is insensitive to the concerns of a minority grp believes that he/she is acting in the community's best interests.

By the way,I feel that 'to great numbers of people representing diverse interests' is wrong.Isn't 'numbers of' wrong on GMAT?

Thanks.

Between A and C, C disguises automobile group as a minority group.Also, the argument talks about a citizen and his/her opinion rather than a politician and his deeds.

A prevails.

OA is B though. The assertion was that "Those who condemn the governor for being unsympathetic to the plight of the automobile industry are merely using that allegation as a smokescreen for their own partisan politics". So basically the people condemning the governor are only doing so because of their own politics. The second sentence has nothing to do with the assertion.
