Many people suffer an allergic reaction to sulfites, including those that are commonly added to wine as preservatives. However, since there are several winemakers producing wine to which no sulfites are added, those who would like to drink wine but are allergic to sulfites can drink these wines without risking an allergic reaction to sulfites.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument?
a)Sulfites occur naturally in most wine. b)The sulfites that can produce an allergic reaction are also commonly found in beverages other than wine. c)Wines without added sulfites tend to be at least moderately expensive. d)Apart from sulfites, there are other substances commonly present in wine that can trigger allergic reactions. e)Wine without added sulfites sometimes becomes undrinkable even before the wine is sold to consumers
The answer is A, I thought D but after reviewing nothing fits to this Q for me... Why is it A? Since it says, some winemakers produce wine without sulfites, so people with allergy can choose to drink this wine even sulfties contain in most wine...How does this weaken??
Option B: Nothing to do with wine. It is related to beverages option c:Expensive is notmatter here. Health is the matter Option D:Though it is very close and weaken the argument but not more than A. Again this is basesd on hypothesis Option E:Not at all as it is discussing some other thing rather than health
Option: A: It clearly says that, even wine maker produce wine without sulphaites, but sulphiates are naturally present in wine. So Claim of wine makers are not true. By this reason resonl only Option D is out as option D give the reasoning about items other that sulphiates but option A givies clear reason of sulphaiates.
