Hi all,

I found this question a bit modified in the GMATPrep while some other versions have already been discussed. The bold part is modified in this question.

One of the limiting factors in human physical performance is the amount of oxygen that is absorbed by the muscles from the bloodstream. Accordingly, entrepreneurs have begun selling at gymnasiums and health clubs bottles of drinking water, labeled “SuperOXY,” that has extra oxygen dissolved in the water. Such water would be useless in improving physical performance, however, since the amount of oxygen in the blood of someone who is exercising is already more than the muscles cells can absorb.
Which of the following, if true, would serve the same function in the argument as the statement in boldface?

a. world-class athletes turn in record performance without such water
b. frequent physical exercise increases the body’s ability to take in and use oxygen
c. the only way to get oxygen into the bloodstream so that it can be absorbed by the muscles is through the lungs
d. lack of oxygen is not the only factor limiting human physical performance
e. the water lost in exercising can be replaced with ordinary tap water

I guess the answer should be C.
The bodfaced portion explains why SuperOXY water is useless. It is useless because "the amount of oxygen in the blood of someone who is exercising is already more than the muscles cells can absorb".

Now, option C also tells that the only way to get oxygen in the blood of someone is through lungs. Therefore SuperOXY will not be useful.

What is the OA ?

Hi AnnaKathpal,

Option C does not negate the first sentence of the argument. Lets see why.

One of the limiting factors in human physical performance is the amount of oxygen that is absorbed by the muscles from the bloodstream. - It means that muscles can absorb oxygen from the bloodstream upto a certain threshold. If the threshold is crossed muscles cannot absorb oxygen.

Option C: the only way to get oxygen into the bloodstream so that it can be absorbed by the muscles is through the lungs - Oxygen enters bloodstream through lungs. Later, muscles absorb oxygen from the bloodstream. This option does not go against the stated fact in the question.

Now, why is option C correct? If you replace the bold portion and fit in option C, it strengthens the conclusion that SuperOXY is useless in improving physical performance.

Hope it helps.
