### HideShow timer Statistics

Weather patterns in various parts of the country appear to affect the emotional states of many residents; for example, the long winters of the Northeast and northern Midwest are associated with increased depression and lethargy in some people. Therefore, an extended, unseasonal cold spell in Florida would result in an increased incidence of depression among many Florida residents.

In the passage above, the author develops the argument by

A. giving examples of a set of proven effects, and then analyzing the cause of those effects

B. drawing a conclusion based on a generalization about weather patterns

C. presupposing that cold weather necessarily affects one’s emotional state

D. claiming that a result will occur in a specific case after citing a correlation in another case

E. making a distinction between normal and unusual weather patterns

A. giving examples of a set of proven effects, and then analyzing the cause of those effects - there is no analysis here

B. drawing a conclusion based on a generalization about weather patterns- not necessarily, he is talking about the effect on weather on people's moods

C. presupposing that cold weather necessarily affects one’s emotional state - there is no presupposition

D. claiming that a result will occur in a specific case after citing a correlation in another case - best answer

E. making a distinction between normal and unusual weather patterns - irrelevant

Well, OA is "D". But why it can't be "B"?

I think the author is trying to provide specific examples Northeast and northern Midwest and try to generalize other places.

B says that the author is using a generalization to draw a conclusion - Incorrect.

Because B says that the author is generalising weather patterns, when in fact he is making a generalization about the effects of weather patterns.
