This wording wouldn't have been my prephrased answer, but I suspect none of the other answer choices would be particularly tempting (Or this is a genuinely tricky flaw question) That said, Old tests are usually pretty strange to me. I do very well on LR, but tend to fly from experience, and the wording of this answer choice doesn't tempt me right away. It comes off like one of those "wtf jargon" wrong answer choices I love seeing: "The argument relies critically on assuming an assumption which is assumed to be presumed"
the other choices were
a: greenwalls takes for granted that many customers have stopped using the equipment but are too embarrassed to admit it.
b: greenwall presumes without providing justification that most people are dishonest about their personal habits
c: faden presumes, without providing justification, that the more conclusive the evidence is for a claim, the less believable the claim becomes
e: greenwall ignores the possbility that some peoppel stopped using the equipment but were not embarrassed about it
