The question is:
Recently, the research and development departments at major pharmaceutical companies have been experimenting with new injections that provide the boost in iron that anemic children need to reverse their condition. These companies have expressed confidence that children who are suffering from anemia will be cured relatively simply thruough the use of such biochemical suppliments.
In concluding that the biochemical remedy being developed will have its desired effect, the pharmaceutical companies assume that
A. major pharmaceutical companies have the primary responsibility to cure childhood anemia
B. a low iron level in the body is the major factor influencing the incidence of anemia in children
C. a diet rich in iron cannot improve the conditions of children suffering from anemia to the point that biochemical suppliments would become unnecessary
D. children afflicted with anemia will find out about and submit to injections that can reverse their conditions
E. the use of biochemical supplements is the safest way to cure anemia in children
"To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed."
I chose B but it is not the OA. Maybe someone can elaborate why it should not be B.
I think its C.
B is certainly not the answer. The argument talks only about the cure through "BIOCHEMICAL SUPPLEMENTS". Here the author is not concerned about factors influencing the incidence of anemia in children. Author is concerned only about the cure. "SUPPLEMENTS" in the sentence suggests that regular diet is not improving the health of anemic children thats why company is doing R&D.
I am going to go with D. The company is predicting that "the children will be cured relatively simply thruough the use of such biochemical suppliments". Inorder for them to claim the children will be cured they should make the assumption that the children will take the injection. D coveys this.
