The number of North American children who are obeseâ€”that is, who have more body fat than do 85 percent of North American children their ageâ€”is steadily increasing, according to four major studies conducted over the past 15 years.
If the finding reported above is correct, it can be properly concluded that
(A) when four major studies all produce similar results, those studies must be accurate
(B) North American children have been progressively less physically active over the past 15 years
(C) the number of North American children who are not obese increased over the past 15 years
(D) over the past 15 years, the number of North American children who are underweight has declined
(E) the incidence of obesity in North American children tends to increase as the children grow older
I got (C) using different logic. A was the trap answer because of it`s extreme language.
The stem says that the number of children that are obese is steadily increasing. That means 15% of say 50 million kids in 1990, would equal 15% of 60 million kids in 2005. Of course, as the population continues to grow, the proportionate numbers of kids must growing as well.
Therefore, the numbers of non-obese kids must be growing as well.
**This however is not the case in Japan, where the population (especially kids) is actally decreasing. Therefore, my logic may not be suitable for all societies.
