### HideShow timer Statistics

Which of the following most logically completes the argument?
When people engage in activities that help others ,their brain releases endorphins,
the brainâ€™s natural opiates, which induce in people a feeling of well-being. It has
been suggested that regular release of endorphins increases peopleâ€™s longevity.
And a statistic on adults who regularly engage in volunteer work helping others
shows that they live longer, on average, than adults who do not volunteer. However,
that statistic would be what we would expect even if volunteering does not
boost longevity, because .
A. in the communities studied, women were much more likely to do regular
volunteer work than men were, and women tend to live longer than men do.
B. the number of young adults who do regular volunteer work is on the increase
C. the feelings of well-being induced by endorphins can, at least for a time, mask
the symptoms of various conditions and diseases, provided the symptoms are
mild.
D. it is rare for a person to keep up a regular schedule of volunteer work throughout
his or her life.
E. Some people find that keeping a commitment to do regular volunteer work
becomes a source of stress in their lives.

What do you think is the answer guyz?

(A) looks like the answer. Eliminate E because it just talks about some people, D looks like it is out of the context.

C says that the release would, for a time, mask the symptoms... If anything, it supports the conclusion. "180"

The answer here should be (A). If women do live longer (and aactually it has been statistically proven that they do) then the whole endorphine boosting longevity argument is weakened.

Thanks Matt. I read the last line "even if the volunteer activity does not boost " and decided that they talk about in General (not specifically any gender) and went to option C.
