SC: NOVEX answer difference between OG 11 and CR1000 (FYI) [#permalink] New post 21 May 2006, 19:33
Advertisement: For sinus pain, three out of four hospitals give their patients Novex. So when you want the most effective painkiller for sinus pain, Novex is the one to choose.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the advertisement’s argument?

(A) Some competing brands of painkillers are intended to reduce other kinds of pain in addition to sinus pain.

(B) Many hospitals that do not usually use Novex will do so for those patients who cannot tolerate the drug the hospitals usually use.

(C) Many drug manufacturers increase sales of their products to hospitals by selling these products to the hospitals at the lowest price the manufacturers can afford.

(D) Unlike some competing brands of painkillers, Novex is available from pharmacies without a doctor’s prescription.

(E) In clinical trials Novex has been found more effective than competing brands of painkillers that have been on the market longer than Novex.

I remember encountering this problem when I did OG11th edition and when I saw it on CR1000, I knew what the answer was. But on OG11 the OA is C (problem 10 in OG11)

in CR1000 (Test 15 problem 6) the answer is D

I assume that OG11 is correct over CR1000.

Of course OG11 is correct over CR1000.
And answer 'C' is more logic here than 'D' is.

(A) Not important.

(B) nothing that says Novex is not the most effective

(C) If price is the determining factor for choosing Novex, then it has nothing to do with effectiveness

(D) So what??

(E) Does not undermine the advertisement

C should be the best choice

In my opinion C makes more sense than D.

For me the choice was between "B" and "C" and "C" edged it. Don't really understand how "D" can be the correct choice.
