    Where can I get the vehicle inspection program? Is that program universal for all cars, no matter private cars or trucks?

    A is pretty irrelevant and not really an unstated assumption
    B does nothing to link the premises and the conclusion
    C the conclusion is about health not pollution
    D that is an assumption. if you negate it, it weakens the argument
    E Irrelevant

    The answer is D. out of curiosity, what is the source of this question?
