. A public-service advertisement advises that people
who have consumed alcohol should not drive until
they can do so safely. In a hospital study, however,
subjects questioned immediately after they consumed
alcohol underestimated the time necessary to regain
their driving ability. This result indicates that many
people who drink before driving will have difficulty
following the advertisementтАЩs advice.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports
the argument above?
(A) Many people, if they plan to drink alcohol, make
arrangements beforehand for a nondrinker to
drive them home.
(B) The subjects in the hospital study generally rated
their abilities more conservatively than would
people drinking alcohol outside a hospital
setting.
(C) Some people refrain from drinking if they will
have to drive to get home afterward.
(D) The subjects in the hospital study were also
questioned about the time necessary to regain
abilities that do not play an important role in
driving safely.
(E) Awareness of the public-service advertisement
is higher among the general population than it
was among the subjects in the hospital study.

I vote for B

In a hospital study, subjects questioned immediately after they consumed
alcohol underestimated the time necessary to regain their driving ability.

If the subjects in the hospital study rate their abilities more conservatively, then people drinking alcohol outside a hospital rate their abilities freely, jeopardizing the advertising and corroborating the conclusion.

Straight (B) here in just under a minute. The hospital subjects were "playing it safe" but still above the legal limit that would impair their driving abilities.
