Whatever else might be said about American elections, they are quite unlike those in totalitarian countries in that Americans make choices. And one choice they can make in this free country is to stay home.

What is the author’s point in the above passage?

A. Americans who do decide to vote make more choices than those who do not.
B. American elections embody many negative aspects, most of which are not embodied by elections in totalitarian countries.
C. Choosing not to vote is the prerogative of a free citizen.
D. All citizens vote in every election in totalitarian countries.
E. Most American voters are not well informed enough to vote wisely

Argument is saying Americans can make choices while people of totalitarian countries cannot. One of the choice Americans could make is not to vote.

Pre thinking: Americans have a choice to vote.

We need to find out the main point.

A. Americans who do decide to vote make more choices than those who do not. : We are no where comparing among Americans.
B. American elections embody many negative aspects, most of which are not embodied by elections in totalitarian countries. : OFS.
C. Choosing not to vote is the prerogative of a free citizen. : As per our pre thinking. Correct.
D. All citizens vote in every election in totalitarian countries: Too extreme to select.
E. Most American voters are not well informed enough to vote wisely : Ohh Is it? How can we say this? Incorrect.
