Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

A recent experiment has revealed that a person stands the best chance of surviving a plane crash if he or she is sitting at the back of the aircraft. A Boeing 727 was crashed on purpose into the Sahara desert, and various aspects of the impact were analysed. One of the findings of this experiment was that dummies placed at the back of the airplane suffered much less damage than the ones placed at the front. Thus, when traveling by airplanes, you would be much better off sitting at the back, assuming __________________.

(A) that all the seats at the back of the plane haven’t already been booked
(B) that the plane will be flying over the Sahara desert
(C) that the plane is manufactured by Boeing and has been part of the test described in the stimulus
(D) that the plane does not crash on its tail
(E) that these results apply to airplane crashes in general, and not just to those of old 727s into sand.

Only option E fits right..since the author makes a general statement that when traveling by (any) airplanes, it would be much better off sitting at the back the best assumption is the results apply in general and not to just specific make.

(A) that all the seats at the back of the plane haven’t already been booked
Explanation: IRRELEVANT

(B) that the plane will be flying over the Sahara desert
Explanation: IRRELEVANT

(C) that the plane is manufactured by Boeing and has been part of the test described in the stimulus
Explanation: Only A Boeing 727 was used as a subject for the experiment. Hence INCORRECT

(D) that the plane does not crash on its tail
Explanation: The experiment analysed various aspects of crash and came up with the findings. Hence this option is INCORRECT

(E) that these results apply to airplane crashes in general, and not just to those of old 727s into sand.
Explanation: Assuming that all airplanes will suffer a similar damage in a crash. - CORRECT
