Experts please help...even I thought that the correct ans is D...

The entire argument is based upon school's viewpoint about "discouraging" students from drinking "more" soft drinks. In other words, we need to look for an option that shows that there is a link between installing vending machines and consumption of soft drink.

Let us now look at both sides of D:

i) say vending machines are not installed. In that case, (as per D) students will simply bring soft drinks from home: So clearly, not installing vending machines has no effect.

ii) say vending machines are installed. In that case anyway, the students will use vending machines to buy soft drinks in school. Again, installing vending machines is not making them drink "more" soft drinks.

The point is that as per D, installing vending machines is just shifting the behavior from bringing soft drinks from home TO buying soft drinks in school. But this is not effecting the consumption of soft drinks.

Although I choose D over A, I now understand the why. Please correct me if I were wrong.

(D) Students will not simply bring soft drinks from home if the soft drink vending machines are not placed in the cafeteria.

INCORRECT. Because bringing soft drinks from home does not explain whether putting a vending machine increase student's drink consumption.

Although the school would receive financial benefits if it had soft drink vending machines in the cafeteria, we should not allow them. Allowing soft drink machines there would not be in our students' interest. If our students start drinking more soft drinks, they will be less healthy.

The argument depends on which of the following?

(A) If the soft drink vending machines were placed in the cafeteria, students would consume more soft drinks as a result.Like this one. Let's keep it. Negate this answer and see if the argument still holds; if the soft drink vending machines were placed in the cafeteria, students would not consume more soft drinks as a result. Argument falls apart. Correct choice
(B) The amount of soft drinks that most students at the school currently drink is not detrimental to their health.Irrelevant. The argument is about students drinking more soft drinks if the vending machines are placed in the cafeteria
(C) Students are apt to be healthier if they do not drink soft drinks at all than if they just drink small amounts occasionally.Irrelevant comparison
(D) Students will not simply bring soft drinks from home if the soft drink vending machines are not placed in the cafeteria.Tricky, but the argument is about the placement of vending machines in the cafeteria inducing students to consume more. Irrelevant
(E) The school's primary concern should be to promote good health among its students. what if good health among students isn't the primary concern? Would that undermine the argument? No. In fact the Primary concern of any school is education

Kudos if you like answer :-)
