hi GMATNinjaTwo, mikemcgarry.
Could you please look into this?
Option A states that fat will not melt necessarily. but the passage does mention that fat will melt, with no exceptions stated.
Option C is more apt which brings a new element into picture, the chemicals and yes we can infer that from the passage, although not stated directly and that is what inferences are all about...
Is my understanding correct?

there is no information in the passage about chemical and fat CELLS.
by the way, how you tag name of other members in your post?

Yes...exactly,there is no info about new chemicals, but that is what inferences are about. Options for inferences may introduce new elements, right?

P.S: You use @ProfileName to tag someone.

first, thanks for showing me the way to tag the name of a member.
Next, an inference has nothing to do with a new information, but an assumption often does.
Oh Gosh, you really need to work on the inference question b/c such type of question is the main type in reading comprehensive in gmat.
It is not hard to do inference questions in reading, but in CR, inference questions are hard. The point is an answer for an inference question must be always true based on information from the passage.

Ok..now tell me what makes you believe that option A is correct? Doesn't the passage say that the subject causes the loss of body fat(paraphrase: will lose body fat). But the option A states that they will not "necessarily" lose body fat!! How correct is this?
I will be happy to stand corrected.

A is a common pattern in gmat b/c A concerns with the amount vs the percentage.
Clearly, in A, both the amount of fat and amount of non-fat decrease. For example, the total body mass is 10, fat is 6; the percentage is 60%. Now, fat is reduced to 3, and body mass is now half => percentage is still 60%.
The other way to check whether A is truly right is to use POE method. That is, all wrong choices will be eliminated, and A is left.
