Page 336 Question 12

Can anyone please explain what distinguishes answer choice (A) from (E). Obviously I understand that E is a perfect choice and I should have picked that. However, I do not see at all why I should have skipped past answer choice (A), specifically because a premise in the argument is that to offend is not to cause harm. Is some tricky business going on here or am I missing something?

Whoa: (E) is NOT the right answer. We cannot make any inference about "serious" harm, for one thing, since the passage gave us no method of grading harm levels (for another, the passage explicitly says that such restrictions may perhaps be OK). So maybe (E) is true, but we can't prove it based on what we've got here.

(A) on the other hand (as you've pointed out) derives direct proof from the passage.

Make sense?
