But how does it matter if it's main function of the inhibitors or not?
As antibodies are going to deactivate them anyway and the premise clearly points out that inhibitors are the reason why regeneration is affected.

I can't understand why it's A. Anyways, what's the source?

Hi Leo.
The 2nd sentence states that: "The reason, recently discovered, is the presence of nerve-growth inhibitors in the spinal cord". It doesn't say nerve-growth inhibitors are main/only factors that inhibit the damaged nerve's regeneration. "Presence" probably means there are more than one factors could stop the regeneration. Antibodies deactivate just those inhibitors, not others. So we cannot simply conclude these antibodies help to repair damaged-nerves. Hope it helps.

This post was
BOOKMARKED
what is the problem with option D..
if..
Researchers have been able to stimulate the growth of nerves not located in the spinal cord
by using "only" nerve-growth stimulants.(means they cannot do without that) so as a result..nerve repair cannot be a standard medical procedure as they ought to use nerve growth stimulants and hence the arg falls apart..

kindly explain.

SUBJECT OF ARGUMENT - Damaged nerves in the spinal cord -
DOES NOT HAPPEN - BY THEM-SELF OR BY SPUR OF NEVER GROWTH STIMULANT.
HAPPENS - is the presence of nerve-growth inhibitors(RESTRICTING) in the spinal cord.
SOLUTION -Antibodies that DEACTIVATE those inhibitors have now been developed.
CONCLUSION - nerve repair will be a standard medical procedure in the foreseeable future.

SO if damaged on NERVES happens because of restricted nerve growth - so what could be its treatment?
to activate nerve growth or stimulate nerve growth.
OPTION A- clearly mention's- PREVENTION OF the regeneration of damaged nerves is merely a by-product of the main function in the human body of the substances inhibiting nerve growth.

So if damaged nerve are prevented to activate/function properly/nerve growth stimulate - than how can be patient treated or DAMAGED NERVES CAN BE TREATED, Therefore - OPTION IS A IS WEAKENING THE CONCLUSION
