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 advertisement’s 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.

B is right. If hospital subjects are conservative than general public that means they the general public will underestimate the effects by higher % time...thus it strengthens...

A, C and D are out of scope.

E weakens it.

(A) (C) has nothing to do with the premise.
(D) abilities that do not play an important role in driving safely also
has nothing to do with the premise.
(E) awareness of the advertisement also has nothing to do with
whether people underestimate the time to regain driving ability.

Thus I choose (B)

B - its the only one that directly focuses on the hospital study in the way a corect CR answer would focus.

late but B is definitely it.

The only difficulty I could see is carelessly ruling out B for OUT OF SCOPE for "outside hospital setting"... however, if one does so, all the other answers are not IT!!!
