Cost of the antibiotics is not the issue because it was not discuss in the stimulus. Furthermore, if the new antibiotic cost more than the old antibiotic, then how much more of the cost will it actually impact people's decision in buying the drug? Perhaps the antibiotic cost $1 more, which would not affect people decision in buying AB. What if the AB cost $100 more, then that would affect people decision in buying thr AB. Thus, when you have to make an assumption for that answer choice, then its incorrect.

Option E.
If the patients will feel okay only AFTER THREE DAYS,then they won't stop taking the new drug BEFORE 3 DAYS.And the new drug just takes 3 days to cure the infection.Hence the argument that the new antibiotic drug will be more effective is strengthened as THERE WILL BE NO REINFECTIONS AS COMPARED TO THE ALTERNATIVE TRRATMENT.

A. Some of the people who are allergic to penicillin are likely to be allergic to the new antibiotic. --- This is not helping our conclusion.

B. A course of treatment with the new antibiotic costs about the same as a course of treatment with either penicillin or erythromycin. ---- well if so why not take new drug --- positive

C. The new antibiotic has been shown to be effective in eradicating bacterial infections other than strep. --- means if something else then also it will help --- positive

D. Some physicians have already begun to prescribe the new antibiotic instead of penicillin or erythromycin for the treatment of some strep infections. ---- that doesnot help

E. Regardless of whether they take a traditional antibiotic or the new one, most patients feel fully recovered after taking the drug for three days. --- most patients feel good , is this sufficient to make sure that reinfection will not happen. i think no. this argument have flaw.

I will go with C.
