A newly discovered disease is thought to be caused by a certain bacterium. However, recently released data notes that the bacterium thrives in the presence of a certain virus, implying that it is actually the virus that causes the new disease.

Which of the following pieces of evidence would most support the data’s implication?

(A) In the absence of the virus, the disease has been observed to follow infection by the bacterium.
(B) The virus has been shown to aid the growth of bacterium, a process which often leads to the onset of the disease.
(C) The virus alone has been observed in many cases of the disease.
(D) In cases where the disease does not develop, infection by the bacterium is usually preceded by infection by the virus.
(E) Onset of the disease usually follows infection by both the virus and the bacterium.

This question has been posted in this forum for more than 5 times. It's recommended that you search for the question in the forums before posting.

Most of the people like me and everyone else would be interested in some new questions. Who doesn't like new stuff?

Anyways, the answer is C.

B is wrong as it just repeats the premise .

I agree with 85 here. Let's not get lazy and start searching.
Answer is definetely (C)
We need to show how virus causes the disease in absence of bacteria.
