Please take an analytical approach and tell why you think that each option is correct or incorrect. :)

1 cant be inferred(with subsidy, outside control)
3 is out, for subsidy and for profit are alternatives.
5 is converse of 4

2 and 4 are kinda supported by the argument if we dont care much about modal verbs--will and must.

I'd chose 4

it's D.

Point 1) if the press is not profit making, then it is forced to be subsidize. if its subsidized then there is outside control. I diagramed it to look like this: no Profit-->Subsidized-->Outside Control. (reversal of this is: no outside control--> Not subsidized-->then profitable)

Point2) if there is honest journalism, then no subsidies. HJ-->Not Subsidized.

From Point 1's reversal, we found that "Not subsidized-->profitable" so you can add on to point #2. Conclude that HJ-->Not Subsidized-->Profitable (or HJ-->Profitable)

hope that helps!

Setup
Press= Profit making

( outside control = propaganda ) -- > easily subsidized
no honest journalism = subsidized

But:

If (Press = no profit) & (press = no subsidized) --> no survivial

If (press= no profit) & (press = subsidized) --> survival

A) wrong. it doesn't mention that profit making companies are free from control.

B) no , it just won't have to resort to subsidies.

C) no, it only says that not profit making companies must be subsized
