I'm not Sajjad, but I believe I can help.

iii is a trap answer because it specifies adrenaline, which is linked to anger only, rather than emotions generally. Q1 refers to emotions generally. A medication preventing the release of Adrenaline may very well do nothing to help control any/all other emotions.

Author has mentioned conclusive relations for "certain emotions". Example is given as anger.
We cannot generalize it to "emotions" on a wider basis.

Also, "in vain" is a RED FLAG because it is an extreme option. Usually we avoid extreme options in GMAT.

question no. 1 explanation

Official Explanation

1. According to the passage, in which of the following hypothetical cases would a person be able to consciously control his or her emotions?

Difficulty Level: 700+

Explanation

(A) Statement iii is factually incorrect.

(B) The passage states that the reason a person is not able to voluntarily control emotions is that these emotions are sustained by hormones whose rate of dissipation cannot be controlled by humans. Thus, if no such hormones were released, there would be no problem in the frst place. So, statement i is correct.

Statement ii is also correct because by consuming this drug, a person can increase the rate of dissipation of hormones, something he had no control upon earlier.

Statement iii is incorrect because it specifcally talks about adrenaline. Even if adrenaline is not produced, some other hormone could be produced upon whose dissipation rate a person would have no control.

(C) Statement iii is factually incorrect.

(D) Does not contain statement ii.

(E) It contains statement iii.
