Is this a Weaken or resolve the paradox question?

It seems to me that it is a resolve since we have two contradicting sets of facts. But what makes this a possibility for a weaken question is that it has a conclusion.

Any help to explain what question type this is?


It is a 'resolve the paradox' question. There is a paradox here:
There is price freeze and more medicine is not being sold. Still, per capita expenditure is increasing.
You have to explain the paradox.

"the ministry of health prohibited drug manufacturers from raising any of their products’ prices."

That one word, "raising", hold the key to this question. They can't RAISE the price, but they can make new ones at a higher price.
Thus, answer choice A.
Sneaky b@$t@rd$.

Govt.banned the price hike on(say 100 ) medicines ....manufacturers found that the sales will not give them a substantial profit margin which has been around 15% every year SO, THEY STARTED manufacturing new medicines, not listed in those 100 medicines list and hence the per capita expenditure on prescription kept increasing.
+1 for (A)

I think A and C are good options

But if you look at last line :per capita expenditure for prescription drugs continued to increase by a substantial percentage each year.

Continued increase is possible by bringing new product and by improving technology(* technology can be improved to at some level)

So A is correct!!!
