Will you stop posting the OA/OA's please?

Anxiety + EP = nausea

All have EP

Producers want people who are anxious. That means producers want people who suffer from nausea.

So in the past, people who suffered from N might have auditioned well and went on to become contestants.

Hence E

IMO D

A combination of anxiety and external pressure leads
to nausea. All the auditioners for the new reality show
Wanna Be’s suffer from external pressure. Some of
the auditioners feel anxiety about performing well for
the producers, but others do not feel anxious. The
producers of Wanna Be’s like to choose contestants
who feel anxiety.

Which of the following conclusions is most strongly
supported by the passage above?

(A)The auditions for Wanna Be’s cause more
performers to feel external pressure than do
auditions for other shows --> out of scope

(B)Most of the people who audition become
contestants on Wanna Be’s --> no info

(C)There is more nausea among auditioners for
Wanna Be’s than among producers of
Wanna Be’s -->no info

(D)No auditioner who doesn’t feel anxiety has
nausea --> the best. Initially, I think it's too general because it mentions all auditioner (while the fact is only about auditioners of Wanna Be's show). However, rechecking it, we are sure that whatever auditioner of Wanna Be's show or auditioner of other show, if one doesn't feel anxiety, he/she won't have nausea. The reason is that nausea is a combination of anxiety and external pressure, so if one of these two elements doesn't appear, the outcome won't appear either.

(E)Most of the auditioners for Wanna Be’s who
become contestants have nausea -->not completedly supported by the argument. Because all auditioners of Wanna Be's show suffer from external pressure, while all the contestants of this show are anxiety because the producers prefer them to other auditioners who are not anxiety. Therefore, all auditioners for Wanna Be's have nausea, not most

Therefore, there is still possibility that nausea could appear although one of those 2 elements doesn't appear. So, this choice fails

It's clear D for me as all other options can not be deduced from the stimulus.

E....Sine all the contestents will have anxiety and pressure....they will have nausea...A better choice would have been to replace "most" by "all"
