Which of the following most logically completes the passage?
A certain tropical island received food donations in the form of powdered milk for
distribution to its poorest residents, who were thought to be malnourished. Subsequently,
the rate of liver cancers among those islanders increased sharply. The donated milk was
probably to blame: recent laboratory research on rats has shown that rats briefly exposed
to the substances aflatoxin tend to develop liver cancer when fed casein, a milk protein.
This result is relevant because _______.
A. in the tropics, peanuts, a staple of these island residents, support a mold growth
that produces aflatoxin
B. the liver is more sensitive to carcinogens, of which aflatoxin may be one, than
most other bodily organs
C. casein is not the only protein contained in milk
D. powdered milk is the most appropriate form in which to send milk to a tropical
destination
E. the people who were given the donated milk had been screened for their ability to
digest milk

We have to provide support that definitely validates the outcome of result.

A. in the tropics, peanuts, a staple of these island residents, support a mold growth
that produces aflatoxin
IMO – True: Peanuts, which have the same compound to help grow the cancer
B. the liver is more sensitive to carcinogens, of which aflatoxin may be one, than
most other bodily organs
NOT addressing the result
C. casein is not the only protein contained in milk
-Hamper the result as it considers other compound
D. powdered milk is the most appropriate form in which to send milk to a tropical
destination
-NOT addressing the result
E. the people who were given the donated milk had been screened for their ability to
digest milk
-Digestion is OOS

This result is relevant because _______.
A. in the tropics, peanuts, a staple of these island residents, support a mold growth that produces aflatoxin -> this is perfect and it connects the lab expts results and conditions in tropicals where liver cancer is observed among people .IMO A
B. the liver is more sensitive to carcinogens, of which aflatoxin may be one, than most other bodily organs -> this is a general point and not related to the current context why lab Experiments are relevant.eliminate
C. casein is not the only protein contained in milk -> irrelevant
D. powdered milk is the most appropriate form in which to send milk to a tropical destination -> OOS and irrelevant
E. the people who were given the donated milk had been screened for their ability to digest milk -> this is irrelevant
