In spite of what its critics say, the new,

invasive surgical procedures.

against the critics by
(A) attacking her opponents’ method of

IMO E.

The argument uses the critics’ opposition in both the cases as the base of argument.

I will go for E. The critic's analogy is being discussed.

(C) pointing out a contradiction implicit in their criticism of the implant’s high cost

Not (C) because, there is no criticism implied about the implant's high cost (except being called "expensive", but the author does not go further).

I would pick C. If I read this correctly, there is no mention of a criticism about Heart Transplants. These critics should remember that the first heart transplants stimulated an enormous amount of beneficial medical research, even though the transplant technique was later rejected in favor of less invasive surgical procedures.. Unless I am failing to interpret it right, the argument simply cites the amount of beneficial medical research spurred by the transplant and no where in the argument it says that there were protests for heart transplants when it was done in the past.

Why can't B an option? "artificial kidney implant is a boon
to modern medicine" and "first heart transplants stimulated an enormous amount of beneficial medical research" imply analogy between the two benefits. Am I interpreting it differently?

True !!
OA is B !

Even i ended up selecting E ,thinking that analogy exists between critics opposing kidney transplant and heart transplant .But if we closely view E and argument ,we will see:

argument says (E) implying an analogy between the critics’
opposition to the artificial kidney implant
and their opposition to the early heart
transplants ,but no where argument says critics argued against first heart transplant,may be author is just saying ,X which is first time development stimulates enormous research later on being rejected due to some flaw Z.author wants to convey that like Z there might be some flaw in kidney transplant but it might lead to research stimulation.

But in B rightly says that author bringns the anology of +ve points of two developments .

OA is B

oops.. I meant Option B. I didn't realize that typo. Sorry. The explanation offered was for choice B, which happens to be the right answer! Yay!

I picked B when I read the Q. I was going through all the answers and I was wondering why B is not the answer.

Critics never said anything about the Heart transplants. only E talks bout it. wrong

We are not concerned about cost here. C is wrong

Stem says that Kidney transplants are a boon to medicine. B sums up the analogy
