(C) How do deep-sea fish survive in total darkness?
(D) What are the inherited illnesses to which hamsters are subject?

I am going with B. The health of hamster with inherited heart disease is improving when exposed to continuous fluorescent light. Can that logic be extended to hospital patients?

(C) How do deep-sea fish survive in total darkness?
(D) What are the inherited illnesses to which hamsters are subject?
(E) Are there plants that require specific periods of darkness in order to bloom?

B by POE.

There are no good and clear choices but 'B' is the only which makes some sense. So, B.
