A recently published article on human physiology claims that Enzyme K contributes to improved performance in strenuous activities such as weightlifting and sprinting. The Article cites evidence of above-average levels of enzyme K in Olympic weight lifters and sprinters.

Which of the following, if true,would most strengthen the article's conclusion?

a ) Enzyme K levels are the most important factor affecting the performance of strenuous activities.
b ) Enzyme K has no other function in the human body
c ) Enzyme K is required for the performance of strenuous activities.
d ) Enzyme K helps weight lifters more than it helps sprinters.
e) Strenuous activities do not cause the human body to produce unusually high levels of enzyme K

Its a tough one ! Please Post in your answers with the reasoning :wink:

Note : Added the Question Stem


It's a tricky one because there more than one answer options that strengthen the argument.
(A) Enzyme K affect performance - Positively or negatively?
(B) If Enzyme K has no OTHER function in the body, what really is it's function?
(C) Strengthens moderately.
(D) Irrelevant. It compare effect of Enzyme K on weight lifters with effect on sprinters.
(E) Most strengthens - It Enzyme K were produced then it would not useful for performance. It should be already present in body.
