Dr. Kim: Electronic fetal monitors, now routinely used in hospital delivery rooms to check fetal heartbeat, are more intrusive than ordinary stethoscopes and do no more to improve the chances that a healthy baby will be born. Therefore, the additional cost of electronic monitoring is unjustified and such monitoring should be discontinued.
Dr. Anders: I disagree. Although you and I know that both methods are capable of providing the same information, electronic monitoring has been well worth the cost. Doctors now know the warning signs they need to listen for with stethoscopes, but only because of what was learned from using electronic monitors.
As a reply to Dr. Kim’s argument, Dr. Anders’ response is inadequate because it
(A) misses the point at issue
(B) assumes what it sets out to prove
(C) confuses high cost with high quality
(D) overestimates the importance of technology to modem medicine
(E) overlooks the fact that a procedure can be extensively used without being the best procedure available
A? C? Why?

Dr. Kim says that EFM and stethoscopes provide the same information which is why EFMs are not needed. Dr Anders just states that EFMs were good to find information not previously available. Now that the results from EFM are available and can be used to check any warning signs, Dr Anders arguement against discontinuing EFMs does not hold.

Easily A, Dr. Kim is trying to prove that fetal monitors "has been well worth the cost" , but the point is whether it worth the cost in the FUTURE.

said A as well. first doctor is talking about cost of technique, second doctor says that it has given some useful info, but doesnt address why the cost still needs to be incurred.
