I would say that the answer is E.

A is not relevant
B - the physician need to look into this to evaluate the argument
C - this is not necessaryto establish to evaluate the argument
D - this is not required to be established to evaluate the argument

That leaves E - what is the OA?

Yes I will also go with E.

Counter argument by supporter of ad is that final word will come from Physicians.

Unless ppl approach physician he will not have any word and to make this happen we need 'E'.

I go with D. What is OA?
Given: Patients ask for medical prescriptions after reading advertisements. Now if physicians dont know whether this information is correct or not then it is a trouble, for them to evaluate if this generally prescribed medication is right or wrong they need to know have information about this medication too.

In this type of question, if the answer to answer choices as Yes or No impacts the conclusion, that answer choice would be the correct answer.

In the argument, the last line is the conclusion. Only option E will impact this conclusion depending upon whether answer to this option is Yes or No.

Hence, I will go with E.

We need to evaluate whether physicians will be able to be that "last checkpoint".

I go for E. If the physician does not agree to prescribe as the patient's demand what so ever, so the advertisements have not any affects so need not be banned

It's important that the doctors won't give in to the patients demands for the conclusion to be valid.

Good question.

I was confused b/w C and E but E seems to me the correct OA.
