True for all immoral actions:
1. If performed in public, they offend public
2. They are accompanied by guilt

So all immoral actions are accompanied by guilt. And all immoral actions, if performed in public, offend the public.

Which MUST be FALSE? (as per the argument)

(A) Some immoral actions that are not performed in public are not accompanied by feelings of guilt
FALSE! The argument clearly states that ALL immoral actions are accompanied by guilt. This doesn't depend on whether they are performed in public or not. So this must be the answer.

(B) Immoral actions are wrong solely by virtue of being accompanied by feelings of guilt
The argument doesn't talk about right/wrong.

(C) Some actions that offend public sensibilities if they are performed in public are not accompanied by feelings of guilt
Not necessarily false. We don't know about "some actions". We only know about "immoral actions"

(D) Some actions that are accompanied by feelings of guilt are not immoral, even if they frequently offend public sensibilities
Not necessarily false. We don't know about "some actions". We only know about "immoral actions"

(E) Every action performed in public that is accompanied by feelings of guilt is immoral
Not necessarily false. The argument doesn't tell us about "every action". We only know about "immoral actions".

Answer (A)

The option we are looking for is a.

The statement tells that all immoral actions are accompanied by guilt, this statement holds regardless of whether the action is performed in public.

AC A breaks this statement and therefore has to be wrong.

Best regards,
Chris
