Answer

Correct Option is Because the mother kept her newborn baby's information to herself.

Solution:The enumerator convinced mother because the she concealed information about her newborn baby. Thus, we can infer that option (d) is the right answer choice. While the rest of the statements are incoherent. Refer to the last lines of the first paragraph, “While winding up her interview in a household, an enumerator’s observant eye caught the sight of an infant in a cradle. She had to convince the mother, who deliberately withheld the information of her newborn baby, that census meant a full count and had to include even a one-day-old baby.”
