E appears best, because of the word "paradoxically", we need to find a statement where conservatives would welcome a government intervention, the government "on the back" of American people.

But how does C differ from E?

we have to find the paradox. in the argument the conservatives demand that the government should not interfere in the affairs of the people. the paradox of this demand would be if the conservatives demand at the the same that the government should interfere. E) shows this. C) does not.

In order to have a paradoxical stand, the conservatives must call for government intervention. Hence E.

C is a bait. It says "a limitation on the amount of sexually provocative material". But it is not clear whether there should be a government intervention or self discipline. Also question relates to private sexual behaviour, not the publication of sexual materials. C is out.
