Automation, the trademark of a modern economy, is essential to maximizing a country's economic production while minimizing its costs. Health care executives want to increase revenues while reducing costs. Consequently, they propose significantly greater automation of health care. Yet, this should be rejected. Radical automation of health care would cause patients to lose trust in the system as the health care they would receive would lack the in-person care that studies show patients desire.
Which of the following expresses the main point of the argument?
The author is arguing that the health care executives' proposal should be rejected.
A) Health care should not be heavily automated
B) Patients desire customized in-person care
C) Trends in the general economy do not apply to the health care industry
D) Health care executives are becoming too greedy
E) Due to economic forces, automation of health care is eventually inevitable

The answer is A. In the stimulus, the speaker says, "Yet, this should be rejected," while referring to "significantly greater automation of health care."
