hello, I am thinking if the actual gmat tests create totally new questions. In this case, I cannot memorize all the answer, right?

E weakens the statement because it introduces evidence that hospitals stays are already expensive so additional costs through the implementation of the management protocol system might not have the intended results in the argument


so, you actually read the whole problem, and move your eyes through every single word?

the key issue here is the reduction in costs => A, D and E are not eliminated.
A and D are out of scope => E is correct.

To solve this Conclusion Weakening question, first break down the argument. The first sentence is a premise which provides factual data. The second sentence includes the board's plan and their conclusion that the system is beneficial. The last sentence is another premise, citing findings (It has been proven):

Premise A: a system that helps manage hospitals can be used for free
+
Premise B: the system increases efficiency and reduces recovery times
=
Board of Director's Plan: employ the system for its financial benefit

Possible assumption: efficiency leads to financial success in hospitals

Weakening Data: ?

You are required to find data that weakens the conclusion that by using the system the hospital be financially beneficial. The correct answer could be one that exposes the argument's assumption.

This answer choice states that hospital services are paid per day. Since we are told in the last premise that the system results in shorter recovery times, it follows that patients will be paying lower fees. Since the Amgudnow is never full, it doesn't need to constantly vacate beds. Therefore, the system will be too efficient, meaning that the patients will leave too soon with only small hospital bills and less financial benefit to the hospital.
