The problem with answer C, ddddd8888899999, is that it goes much too far and is not required by the argument. This question is asking for something that the argument must assume, so whatever it is must be necessary for the argument to work. While it would help the argument if it were true, answer D is not necessary because there is no need to assume that the patient's rights cease, or that this happens whenever the best treatment is unknown. We need a softer answer, like "sometimes those rights are outweighed by other factors."

Assumption answers, like Must Be True answers, should be easily proven by the argument, and should therefore never be too strong or extreme when compared to the evidence presented. Beware of very strong answers like D!
