A

E

Difficulty:

(N/A)

Question Stats:

100% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 1 sessions
Therapists find that treatment of those people who seek help because they are unable to stop smoking or overeating is rarely successful. For these experiences, therapists have concluded that such habits are intreatable and success in breaking them is rare.
As survey shows millions of people have dropped the habit of smoking and many people have successfully managed a substantial weight loss.
If all of the statement above are correct, an explanation of the apperant contradiction is provided by the hypothesis that:

A. There are some successes in the therapy and those successes were counted in the surveys.
B. It is easier to stop smoking than to stop overeating
C. It is easier to break the habits of smoking and overeating by exercising willpower.
D. The group of people selected in the survey did not include those who failed to break the habits even after therapy
E. those who succeed in curing themselves do not go for treatment and so are not included in the therapists'data

(E) it is

(If people who got cured themselves without any treatment, and were not reported in the therapists data, then both the arguments hold their ground)

IMO it should be A

Example

200 000 people went for therapy. 2000 succeeded (statement one is correct). At the same time of all 10 000 000 (including the 200 000) people who ware trying to quit smoking or overeating, 2 000 000 (including the 2000) ware successful (statement two is correct).

E it is. A concurs with the premises but does not explain WHY the discrepancy. It does not solve the paradox
