According to psychoanalytic theory, people have
unconscious beliefs that are kept from becoming
conscious by a psychological mechanism termed
“repression.” Researchers investigating the nature of
this mechanism observed occasions on which a
patient undergoing therapy became aware of and
expressed a previously unconscious belief. They
found that such occasions were marked by an unusual
decrease in the patient’s level of anxiety.
If the information above is true, and if the
researchers’ investigation was properly conducted,
then which of the following must also be true?
(A) Changes in the patient’s anxiety level during
therapy can generally be used as an accurate measure
of the extent to which the patient is becoming
conscious of previously repressed beliefs.
(B) Even when one of a patient’s unconscious beliefs
remains unconscious, researchers are sometimes able
to discover this belief.
(C) If psychoanalytic theory is correct, then most
conscious beliefs originate as unconscious beliefs,
(D) Researchers were able to distinguish expressed
beliefs that had previously been unconscious from
those that had long been conscious but that the
patient had not previously expressed.
(E) Although the beliefs on which the mechanism of
repression works are all unconscious, the operation of
the mechanism itself is some thing of which patients
are consciously aware.

Pls post your answers with explanations. I will post the OA after i get some replies.

(A) Changes in the patient’s anxiety level during

of the extent to which the patient is becoming
conscious of previously repressed beliefs.------looks to be the best can be concluded from the last line
(B) Even when one of a patient’s unconscious beliefs
remains unconscious, researchers are sometimes able
to discover this belief.--------no evidence to conlude this
(C) If psychoanalytic theory is correct, then most
conscious beliefs originate as unconscious beliefs,---------again nothing to conclude this
(D) Researchers were able to distinguish expressed
beliefs that had previously been unconscious from
those that had long been conscious but that the
patient had not previously expressed.--------in the argument only previously unconsious belief had been talked of
(E) Although the beliefs on which the mechanism of
repression works are all unconscious, the operation of
the mechanism itself is some thing of which patients
are consciously aware.--------beliefs on which method of repression works is not talked of in the argument

Pls post your answers with explanations. I will post the OA after i get some replies.


My answer is A

i m kinda confused between A and D ; but i have a feeling that D is the answer.

actually D wud be the ideal choice if the Question was asking for an Assumption ; therefore i m confused with A which looks as a good conclusion.
