This sentence tries to fool us with its whole
"doesn't necessarily involve" shtick, but it can't hide the definition of our missing word.
No matter what it tells us, we know we're looking for an answer choice that means "saying
something untrue." It isn't hard to get rid of (A) and (E),
because "speaking" and "communicating" are both way too neutral.
We can cross out (C) because "guessing" doesn't have much to do with not being untruthful.
Someone might get a little loose with the truth when they exaggerate...
But "exaggerating" doesn't jibe with "withholding the truth."
(D) is the right answer, because a person is "lying" when they're saying something is untrue.
