Cheetah Sweet, a popular energy drink, has recently released a line of zero calorie energy drinks for athletes who seek flavor and hydration without sugar. But Cheetah Sweet’s zero calorie drinks contain a number of chemicals known to have a deleterious effect on the body, so clearly these athletes would be better served by consuming regular Cheetah Sweet instead.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

The chemicals affect anyone who drinks Cheetah Sweet’s zero calorie line.

Cheetah Sweet’s zero calorie line cannot be altered to remove the chemicals.

Regular Cheetah Sweet is at least as tasty as Cheetah Sweet’s zero calorie line.

Sugar does not have a more deleterious effect on the body than the chemicals in question.

Cheetah Sweet has no plans to discontinue its regular line.

read carefully the options :)

A) The chemicals affect anyone who drinks Cheetah Sweet’s zero calorie line. we donot know this from the stem

Moreovere, the conclusion (for which the assumption must be true) talk about : But Cheetah Sweet’s zero calorie drinks contain a number of chemicals known to have a deleterious effect on the body, so clearly these athletes would be better served by consuming regular Cheetah Sweet instead.

Hope is clear

Should be (D)

The argument says that consuming regular Cheetah Sweet will be more beneficial for the body. This makes an assumption that the sugar in regular Cheetah Sweet is less harmful for the body than the chemicals in the new drink. (D) most clearly expresses this and is therefore the best option.

greatps24,

A): Even if the chemicals affect everyone who has the new drink, this is still not enough evidence for why people should have the sugar version instead. The sugar version is better only if the harmful effects of sugar are less than the harmful effects of the chemicals. This option does not compare the two, and is therefore insufficient.

Hi GyanOne

What is wrong with option A?


Hi

i ll be glad if my post helps you,
Any person other athlete is out of scope. The argument is concerned just about athletes specifically.
also consider the assumption of the argument: The regular drink will not have deleterious affect on athletes.
Read the assumption in conjunction with option D, :-D

In simpler terms...read the argument as A causes B , so Use C.....think about the assumption
Consider kudos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D

I choose C.

Because atlethes are looking for a drink with flavor, regular cheetah is as tasty as the "zero cal", they would be confrotable with the regular one.

Hello Carcass,

Can you please clarify why C is not a correct answer? I do not agree that D is the best answer and I consider C is better for the following reason:

The "better served" definition is defined as "athletes who seek flavor and hydration without sugar." in the previous phrase. Why then would they care if the drink is more/less healthy if the argument explicitly stated that they seek flavor/hydration?

Answer C is the only answer that strengthens their need for a flavor drink as the standard drink would be as tasty as the calorie 0 drink. (not less) If the standard drink would be less tasty, they would not be better served but worse served with the zero drink according to the argument definition of being served.

Thank you!
