To hold criminals responsible for their crimes
involves a failure to recognize that criminal actions,
like all actions, are ultimately products of the
environment that forged the agent’s character. It is
not criminals but people in the law-abiding majority
who by their actions do most to create and maintain
this environment. Therefore, it is law-abiding people
whose actions, and nothing else, make them alone
truly responsible for crime.
The reasoning in the argument is most vulnerable to
criticism on the grounds that
(A) it exploits an ambiguity in the term
“environmentâ€

(A) - out of scope

(B) - not relevant

(C) - out.

(D) - out of scope

(E) its conclusion contradicts an implicit principle on which an earlier part of the argument is based

I think E is the best choice. The conclusion says the law abiding people are the guilty ones because of their actions (which mould the environment) and this contradcits the statement made at the start of the passage where it says criminals should not be guilty because of their actions.
