23. An advertisements states:
Like Danaxil, all headache pills can stop your headache. But when you are in pain, you want relief right away. Danaxil is for you—no headache pill stops pain more quickly.
Evelyn and Jane are each suffering from a headache. Suppose Evelyn takes Danaxil and Jane takes its leading competitor.
Which one of the following can be properly concluded from the claims in the advertisement?
(A) Evelyn’s headache pain will be relieved, but Jane’s will not.
(B) Evelyn’s headache pain will be relieved more quickly than Jane’s.
(C) Evelyn’s headache will be relieved at least as quickly as Jane’s.
(D) Jane’s headache pain will be relieved at the same time as is Evelyn’s.
(E) Jane will be taking Danaxil for relief from headache pain.

I agree to C

The statement says, no other drug relieves pain more quickly than danaxil. But it does not say, that danaxil relieves pain more quickly than any other drug. The competitor's drug could relieve pain just as fast as danaxil and the statement is still true, that no other drug relieves pain faster then danaxil. So the best you can get out of that statement is, that danaxil will relieve pain at least as fast as every other competitor.

I pick C!

A close call between B and C.
Why not B - The argument states that no other pill stops pain more quickly. This means other pills can stop the pain at the same time or take a bit longer time.

Good observation nero. B is a trap answer based on clever wording. I also choose C.

There is a trap in this question. The trap is in "no headache pill stops pain more quickly". This doesn't mean that Danaxail will be quicker than others pills. Between B and C, C should be the answer.
