So in logical reasoning, the term we use is assumption, and in logical reasoning the assumption is unstated. But in real life and in reading comp, assumptions can be stated. I can state that I assume you grew up in a suburban area, and that is a stated assumption.
Christen stated that above that answer choice A can be supported in line 50, and I agree. The author states that Dahl believes Polyarchies cannot handle a certain level of democracy. This is an assumption in the everyday sense. In logical reasoning we use a very specific definition of assumption that is an unstated assumption, usually a jump between a premise and a conclusion or somewhere between multiple premises and a conclusion that is unstated.
I 'm sorry for the confusion, and I'm sure that's frustrating. Continue posting on the forums and keep studying. If you understand the passages better, success in the questions should follow soon.
Good luck with everything and I wish you well.
