“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.â€

I think E is best. here. 1 min.
E is an instance in which doctors always produced the reports(wasting their time) but where no patients asked for it anyways. The 2nd action is not cancelling the first.

I will go with A because if the new law states that regardless of whether a patient wants to see his records, the doctor has to keep his records ready just in case the patients ask for it , then both of the reasons cited by the author holds true.

Anuram, you are right. A sounds better. Was hesitating b/w A and E but E is more like an example but does not prove whether producing reports will be useful or not. A is better.

(A) is the best because whether or not a patient asks for it the doctors will have to have it ready

OA is A

Bhai, we have to pick the choice that will make BOTH doctor's arguments valid. Given the stem only, it is likely that ONLY ONE argument will work

(A) explains how it is possible that:
1) patients do not ask for their records
2) medical personnel still wastes time retrieving files (just to get them ready)

Wow, very good question.

Bhai, my explanation:

Question Stem:
1. Taking record consumes nurse's time
2. No patient asks for records

Actually, 2 is cancelling out the first reason, because if no one is asking, the nurse's time wont be wasted at all.

A makes it such that, ideally no one asks (2), but the doctors have to have it ready even before the patient comes, thereby wasting nurse's time (1).
