A bacterial species will inevitably develop greater resistance within a few years to any antibiotics used against it, unless those antibiotics eliminate that species completely. However, no single antibiotic now on the market is powerful enough to eliminate bacterial species X completely.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the statements above?

(A) It is unlikely that any antibiotic can be developed that will completely eliminate bacterial species X.
(B) If any antibiotic now on the market is used against bacterial species X, that species will develop greater resistance to it within a few years.
(C) The only way of completely eliminating bacterial species X is by a combination of two or more antibiotics now on the market.
(D) Bacterial species X will inevitably become more virulent in the course of time.
(E) Bacterial species X is more resistant to at least some antibiotics that have been used against it than it was before those antibiotics were used against it.

Kudos!

Easy B.

In A, the argument doesn't mention any antibiotic that will be developed in the future, just those on the market.
Other choices are clearly irrelevant.
