Doctor: Research shows that adolescents who play video games on a regular
basis are three times as likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome as are
adolescents who do not play video games. Federal legislation that prohibits
the sale of video games to minors would help curb this painful wrist condition
among adolescents. The doctor’s conclusion depends on which of the
following assumptions?


a) The majority of federal legislators would vote for a bill that prohibits the sale of video games to minors.

b) Not all adolescents who play video games on a regular basis suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome.

c) Playing video games is the only way an adolescent can develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

d) Most parents would refuse to purchase video games for their adolescent children.

e) The regular playing of video games by adolescents does not produce such beneficial effects as better hand-eye coordination and improved reaction time.

Hi

you can use NEGATION approach for this problem. Try to negate all the options, the once that attacks the conclusion is thebest answer

(A) If the majority of federal legislators would NOT vote for a bill that prohibits the sale of video games to minors, the doctor could still be right that legislation would help curb carpal tunnel.

(B) If ALL adolescents who play video games on a regular basis suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, then the doctor could still be right.

(C) If adolescents can develop carpal tunnel syndrome from OTHER ACTIVITIES, the doctor could still be right that video games are the main culprit.

(D) If most parents WOULD purchase video games for their adolescent children, then the doctor is WRONG that legislation would have the intended effect. The doctor's argument therefore depends on (D), and it is the correct answer.

(E) If playing of video games by adolescents DOES produce such beneficial effects as better hand-eye coordination and improved reaction time, then the doctor could still be right about the carpal tunnel issue.
