Try focusing on the missing link between the conclusion and the premises. There are usually a few words or a phrase that seems to come out of nowhere in the conclusion. Look for an answer that links that "out of nowhere" element to the premises. Also, remember that sufficient assumption questions must make the conclusion follow 100%. Plug the answer choice into the stimulus and see if there is still room for the conclusion NOT to follow. If there is, you've got a wrong answer.
