What are the differences between C and E?

It has been against the law for federal agencies and federal contractors to discriminate against a qualified job applicant because of a disability. Now that Congress has approved legislation to expand these existing provisions to cover private industry as well, the number of disabled people who are involuntarily unemployed will drop substantially.

The author of the above argument must be assuming which of the following?

Many congressmen were reluctant to pass the new legislation to prevent discrimination against the disabled.
Some private employers in the past deliberately chose not to hire qualified but disabled job applicants.
The federal government currently employs more disabled people than does private industry.
The approved legislation would stop discrimination against the disabled in the public and private sectors.

It really does come down to C and E. The other two are Out of Scope.

Some private employers in the past deliberately chose not to hire qualified but disabled job applicants.
I like this one more although the wording is funny. If the above assumption was not true then there would be no reason for the bill because the private employers hired qualified people not based on disability and there would be no change to the unemployment of disabled people.

The approved legislation would stop discrimination against the disabled in the public and private sectors.
I like ths one less because it talks about discrimination in general. Just because a disabled person is an employee does not mean they won't be discriminated against when it comes to tasks.

The second premises :
Now that Congress has approved legislation to expand these existing provisions to cover private industry as well,
The conclusion:
the number of disabled people who are involuntarily unemployed will drop substantially.

Now that means there is something wrong in private industry
Some private employers in the past deliberately chose not to hire qualified but disabled job applicants.

hence I choose the above option.

Where is the fifth option, here?

I agree with this. If unemployment rate of qualified disabled people will drop if the policy will be adopted by the private industry, then in the first place the private industry was not hiring (or hiring less) disabled applicants.

What's the OA?
Also, what's option E? There are only four options.
