Though they soon will, patients should not have a legal right to see their medical records. As a doctor, I see two reasons for this. First, giving them access will be time-wasting because it will significantly reduce the amount of time that medical staff can spend on more important duties, by forcing them to retrieve and return files. Second, if my experience is anything to go by, no patients are going to ask for access to their records anyway.

Which one of the following, if true, establishes that the doctor's second reason does not cancel out the first?

(A) The new law will require that doctors, when seeing a patient in their office, must be ready to produce the patient's records immediately, not just ready to retrieve them.
(B) The task of retrieving and returning files would fall to the lowest-paid member of a doctor's office staff.
(C) Any patients who asked to see their medical records would also insist on having details they did not understand explained to them.
(D) The new law does not rule out that doctors may charge patients for extra expenses incurred specifically in order to comply with the new law.
(E) Some doctors have all allowing their patients access to their medical records, but those doctors' patients took no advantage of this policy.

Hi ankurgupta03 ,

the passage states two reasons:
1) Giving them access will be time-wasting.
2) No patients are going to ask for access to their records anyway.

The second one seems to exclude the other, and we are asked to find a case in which BOTH are valid, hence the second does not cancel out the first.

A simple case is the one in which for every visit a doctor makes, he has to be ready to give access to the documents, regardless of whether the patient asked for them.
In this particular case, both reasons are valid so the second does not cancel the first.

A is the correct answer.

A is best.

The doctor should be ready..whether or not the patients want access.

so the staff has to retrieve it anyway.

hope this makes sense.

what does 'cancel out' mean here ?
I think 'Cancel out' is not formal enough to be used here
