Xani and Yata are the only two languages spoken in the country of Zorba, with Xani spoken by the majority of Zorba’s residents. Thus, by learning Xani prior to visiting Zorba, tourists can feel confident that they have done the most that they can to assist in communicating with Zorba’s locals.

Which of the following is an assumption of the argument above?

(A) Travelers to Zorba will not visit other countries in addition to Zorba.
(B) Xani is easier to learn than Yata.
(C) Most tourists are committed to effectively communicating with the residents of the countries that they visit.
(D) Learning both Xani and Yata would not allow tourists to better communicate with the residents of Zorba than would only learning Xani.
(E) Xani and Yata are both commonly spoken in countries other than Zorba.

Irrelevant. Drop it.
(B) Xani is easier to learn than Yata.
Irrelevant. Drop it.
(C) Most tourists are committed to effectively communicating with the residents of the countries that they visit.
Negating this does not destroy our conclusion completely.
(D) Learning both Xani and Yata would not allow tourists to better communicate with the residents of Zorba than would only learning Xani.
Negating this, destroys the conclusion. Keep it.
(E) Xani and Yata are both commonly spoken in countries other than Zorba.
Repeats a premise. Drop it.

Answer: D
