Patient: Doctor, I read an article that claimed that the first few hours after birth are very important to establishing a mother-infant bond, which is the first step in building a healthy relationship. Can you assure me that my relationship with my baby has not been permanently harmed by our separation for several days after his birth?
Physician: Your relationship with your child has not been harmed by the separation. Mother-infant bonding is not like an “instant glueâ€

(A) She rejects an analogy in an attempt to reduce the patient’s concern.
=> the analogy is between the relationship that is described in the article and her own. this analogy is rejected by the doc. => correct
(B) She cites evidence to show that the patient’s worry is unfounded. => she doesnt cite any evidence => incorrect
(C) She misinterprets the patient’s explanation of her concern. => the doc does understand the patient`s concern and says that it would give her a good head start => incorrect
(D) She establishes that the article that the patient read was in error. => same as in C => incorrect
(E) She names other factors that are more important in creating a mother-infant bond. => she only says that there are other factors but she doesnt name them

I'd go with C
Patient's concern is whether not having the bond immediately after birth will harm the relationship.
Doctor does not answer question but instead says that such early bonding is good but there are other things more important.

The above is like someone asking whether not writing the GMAT will affect your chances of being admitted for the MBA and the adcom replying that the doing the GMAT is good but there are other things more important than the GMAT. Was the question of the impact of NOT writing the GMAT answered? No.

I think B is the right answer . The doctor gives some reasoning to reduce the patients concerns.
The doctor just does not reject ( as in A) the argument. He gives evidence.
Also the doctor does answer the patients concern

A and B, both seems to be correct.

but i'll go with "A".

"B" talks about evidence. but where are the evidences in the stem.


as per "C" is concerned i think that the doctor didn't misinterpret but knowingly answered in that way.

(A) She rejects an analogy in an attempt to reduce the patient’s concern.
- Good choice. Rejects the analogy that mother-infant bonding is like 'instant glue'

(B) She cites evidence to show that the patient’s worry is unfounded.
- Not evidence was cited

(C) She misinterprets the patient’s explanation of her concern.
- No misintepretation here. She understood the patient's concern about mother-infant bonding.

(D) She establishes that the article that the patient read was in error.
- Out of scope

(E) She names other factors that are more important in creating a mother-infant bond.
- She rejected the analogy. The other factors merely supported her conclusion.

A it is.
