I strongly believe in B.

The same method of research can be applied to study the recovery of patients in fluorescent light in hospitals.

I think it is E. Because it suggests to look for an option of alternative darkness and light.
Can you please post OA and explanation (if possible)?

D here as well.

B could be a trap answer, although I'm not sure.

Go with B, since the question asks where the method is likely to be applicable.

I figured why E is wrong. I too agree with (B). Good question.

(B) has to be it. The experiment on the hampsters had a positive medical effect, therefore could the same reaction occur in a hospital?

I think that the question is about using the same method of the research: with light, the hamsters life longer, than with light and dark.

In A, you can use let the industrial workers to work by sunlight and by fluorescent, and see in which case they perform better --> same method.

Do u know what i mean?

Thanks.
