Reply To: Takes for granted

Hello again!
I wanted to add on to my jumbled questions above.
The LR necessary assumption questions ask:
The argument above depends on which of the following?
**does this mean that the argument above is flawed BECAUSE the assumption is not stated?
Is it possible for the correct answer choice to be a false assumption?

Does LR either ask for assumption flaws either because the correct assumption is unstated OR because the assumption itself is false (“takes for granted)?

Thank you so much. I was working on Chapter 7 flaw drills when I got confused about the whole takes for granted concept!
