Good one mate. +1 to you. I really like your approach of just not assessing one particular answer. As it is more important to know why other answer choices are incorrect than just knowing why 1 answer choice is correct. I pretty much work on same approach. I think it is the best way to ace SC - cos analyzing every answer choices gives us chance to know probable errors, hone our SC error identifying skills, and lastly we get doubly sure of our chosen answer...

Well done! :cool

still don't know why B is wrong. there is a backward construction in B - No longer limited to casino patrons, test subjects, and stock market investors are the powerful effects of random reinforcement as indicated by a recent study- and I find it perfectly right. plz comment

The modifier "as indicated by a recent study" is awfully far away from the thing it should modify. Namely that it is no longer that the powerful effects of random reinforcement are not longer available to a subgroup. It also seems to modify random reinforcement which is directly next to it. Though (I think) not grammatically wrong, it is not as clear as D is.
