Hi! I thought that "because" signified the 'if' part in a conditional statement. So when I diagrammed the first part, I had "not T so not A". I got the second part just fine. Would you mind explaining this? Thank you :)

You are absolutely correct about causes! True causes are always sufficient conditions.

[It's worth pointing out here that your diagram for (A) should have matched your diagram for the passage—the two are parallel, no matter how you choose to talk about them. So the differences in our treatment of this question shouldn't have any effect on your getting the right answer, right?]

That said, notice that this passage is not conditional. The introduction of "most" tells us that—the PM's tax support doesn't really cause people to disapprove of her. It only causes some people to disapprove of her. And if a cause is only sometimes a cause, then it's not really a cause. It's a contributory factor or somesuch—no matter what you call it, it's clear that it is not sufficient by itself to produce the effect.

Thus, if we want to more accurately describe the passage, we'd need to forego conditional symbols altogether. The problem with that is that we have no practice in dealing with complex non-conditional relationships, since they're rare, and since structural reading practices give us other ways of dealing with them.

So, my solution here was to use a conditional approximation, because I find that it helps me to think more visually about the information. My diagrams are therefore inherently inaccurate (it's not a conditional statement, so any conditional treatment of it must be inaccurate!), but they are still useful to me.

To wit: we are describing most people within a class. That is like (though not precisely the same as) taking a true conditional: 

"Disapproving people are Angry about the PM's tax support," or D → A,

then modifying it with a most, so that it becomes:

"Most Disapproving people are Angry about the PM's tax support,"  or [most] D → A

I'm not absolutely certain that I've made my point clearly, and I'd be totally happy to talk more about it if you'd like!
