Which of the following most logically completes the argument??
When people engage in activities that help others ,their brain releases endorphins,
the brain’s natural opiates, which induce in people a feeling of well-being. It has
been suggested that regular release of endorphins increases people’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. How-
ever, 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 through-
out 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.

I agree with A. It gives an explanation for the same result regardless of the perceived effects of the volunteer work.

C

The agrument is broken down into two pieces. We are to finish the second piece.

1. volunterring --> longevity
2. without volunterring --> still longevity

Maybe volunterring doesn't matter at all?

A. Women = more volunteer = longevity. This proves 1 to be correct but discredits 2.

C. People who volunteer = longer life, but likely to be sick (but they do not know it). People who does no volunteer = normal life, but if sick, they know about it. Volunteer = non-volunteer.

Just my 2cents.

How does it discredit 2? This choice clearly states that "women tend to live longer than men do".

C. People who volunteer = longer life, but likely to be sick (but they do not know it). People who does no volunteer = normal life, but if sick, they know about it. Volunteer = non-volunteer.

I see your point in C though. But, how do you know that the symptoms are mild?

Just my 2cents.
