Although the ratio of physicians to total population is about the
same in the United States and Canada, the United States has 33
percent more surgeons per capita. Clearly, this is the reason people
in the United States undergo 40 percent more operations per capita
than do Canadians.

The explanation given above rests on an assumption that

(A) patients in the United States do not have a greater need for
surgery than do patients in Canada
(B) the population of the United States is not larger than that of
Canada
(C) United States patients sometimes travel to Canada for certain
kinds of surgery
(D) General practitioners in the United States do not as a rule
examine a who is a candidate for surgery before sending the patient
to a surgeon.
(E) There are no unnecessary surgical operations performed in Canada.

A for me...If patients in both the countries have the same needs for surgery then it explains the fact that with 33% more doctors, 40% more operations are performed....

I see the point. I was wrong.

It should be A...B does not relate surgery with population at all.
