Advertisement: For sinus pain, three out of four hospitals give their patients Novex. So when you want the most effective painkiller for sinus pain, Novex is the one to choose.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the advertisement’s argument?
(A) Some competing brands of painkillers are intended to reduce other kinds of pain in addition to sinus pain.
(B) Many hospitals that do not usually use Novex will do so for those patients who cannot tolerate the drug the hospitals usually use.
(C) Many drug manufacturers increase sales of their products to hospitals by selling these products to the hospitals at the lowest price the manufacturers can afford.
(D) Unlike some competing brands of painkillers, Novex is available from pharmacies without a doctor’s prescription.
(E) In clinical trials Novex has been found more effective than competing brands of painkillers that have been on the market longer than Novex.

IMO C.

If the only reason hospitals are buying Novex is to save money than it shows that there might be other effective medicine out there but due to the lower price 3/4 of the hospitals buy Novex.

Confused Between C and B.

C says Novex is preferred because its cheap and not because its effective.

B says Novex is not the first priority of the hospital. In that case it cannot be most efficient.

Anyways i marked (C) on the same lines as the logic given by x97aggarwal but the OA given is D

can anybody explain how that can be the OA.

regarding B,though the hospital authorities dont prefer novex but they do give this to help patients who dont like otther drugs automatically novex is effective and scores better .except from hospital people becoming cynical no other flaw in novex.
