A sign in an eye clinic advises people who have received eye drops that blur vision to refrain from driving until they can do so safely. In a hospital study, however, subjects questioned immediately after they received such drops underestimated the time necessary to regain their driving ability. This result indicates that many people with eye drops will be unlikely to follow the advice.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the argument above?

(A) Many people, if they know they will receive eye drops, make arrangements beforehand for a friend or relative to drive them home.

(B) The subjects in the hospital study generally rated their abilities more conservatively than they would if they were outside the framework of a scientific experiment.

(C) Some people ask their doctors not to give them eye drops that blur vision 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 sign is higher among the general population than it was among the subjects in the hospital study.

(B)

All options other than (B) and (D) are off the mark. (D) talks about abilites other than driving, which has nothing to do with the sign.[/b]

Conclusion: many people with eye drops will be unlikely to follow the advice – refrain from driving.
Only B gives additional information about the premises. Even though they were conservative in their estimate they still underestimated the time so we can conclude that they will not follow the advice.
‘D’ is out of context
In questions like these one should always look for additional evidence to support the conclusion

B for me too.

D doesn't tell you anything. They were asked some other questions. So?
