i too agree with dianamao... what's wrong with Option D. the explanation given above states tone mismatch.
the only reason that i could discard D was if there was a definite difference between Disease and Illness..

(C) Each member of the particular group of illnesses is caused solely by dietary factors.

If not,then who will be able to completely avoid the particular group of illnesses?

(C) wins

"Therefore, those people who follow the dietary standards based on that knowledge will be able to completely avoid the particular group of illnesses at issue."
[the disease(s) which is clearly mentioned as the consequence of dietary flawa, NOT ALL diseases ]

Conclusion : "those people who follow the dietary standards based on that knowledge will be able to completely avoid the particular group of illnesses at issue"

The word "COMPLETELY" indicates that every single one of the "PARTICULAR" group of illnesses can be avoided totally.

Now Choice : D states "All diseases have some dietary causes or cures." Let us negate this assumption. Not all diseases have some dietary causes or cures. Does this kill the conclusion?? I think not because the conclusion clearly says THE PARTICULAR group of ilnesses. Which could very well mean that the conclusion only applies to those diseases which DO have dietary causes and cures.

Choice C : "Each member of the particular group of illnesses is caused solely by dietary factors." Let us negate this assumption. Not all members of the PARTICULAR group of illnesses are caused solely by dietary factors. This means that there are some members of the particular group which are not based on dietary factors and hence the following of the dietary standards might have no bearing on the occurence of these diseases. So the conclusion is killed.

So C is clearly the right answer. Hope its clear.

it's because you are confusing "disease" for "illness". D does weaken the argument but C does it more convincingly

C Indeed.

The author of the conclusion assumes that dietary factors are the only means through which illneses can ocurr to people.

D is incorrect because it broadens the scope by saying all diseases. If you re-read the stimulus, then its clearly mentioned that we are talking about particular group of illnesses.

Some experts believe that within the next few decades, we will be able to identify the dietary pitfalls that lead to a particular group of illnesses. This will allow researchers to discover which foods can prevent health problems, and also which foods lead to health problems. Therefore, those people who follow the dietary standards based on that knowledge will be able to completely avoid the particular group of illnesses at issue.

Conclusion is :
Therefore, those people who follow the dietary standards based on that knowledge will be able to completely avoid the particular group of illnesses at issue.

particular group of illness can be completely avoided on the basis of dietary standards, what if the a particular member of the group does not correlate to the dietary standards , in that case you cannot attribute the avoidance to dietary standard alone.
