Its E , According to sentences 1 and 2 of the passage, all good deeds are accompanied by feelings of satisfaction. Therefore the correct answer has to be false. That is, no good deed, whether or not publicly known, comes without satisfaction.

Option C is not implied or stated in the stimulus as well. The stimulus doesn't give a criteria of what qualifies a good deed as good.

Hi, let me try and give my 2 cents as to why C isn't right. The argument states that good deeds have 2 true components, and it goes on to conditionally state them. However, the argument gives no indication that those 2 components are exhaustive for what makes a good deed. C extremely narrows down the argument's scope too much and hence is wrong.

Why is D incorrect?
D. Every publicly known act that is accompanied by feelings of satisfaction is a good deed.

The stem says that good deeds have 2 properties, it doesn't say that anything with these properties are good.

In option D:- It doesn't say this is the ONLY thing which is true of all good deeds. Some other things can also be true of all good deeds, which will then cover the second part.
So this is not the correct option.
