13) E

The last line “since there will be negative stories in the press..we should ignore them and not worry about them” is the argument of the text. We need to find a flaw in this argument. 

A – Wrong
The argument is not about the examinations. It is about the negative stories that will be published either way.

B – Wrong
Even though it may be true, attacking the press is not the flaw of the argument. 

C – Wrong
Again, it may be true. However, the argument is not about predicting what the press might say when examination results are out. The argument is that there will be negative stories and that we should just ignore them. C does not find a flaw in this argument. 

D – Wrong
The argument is not about the examinations being easy.

E – Correct
The flaw is that we should ignore negative stories. So E is the answer.
