### HideShow timer Statistics

A researcher discovered that people who have low-levels of immune-system activity tend to score much lower on tests of mental health than do people with normal or high immune-system activity. The researcher concluded from this experiment that the immune system protects against mental illness as well as against physical disease.

The researcherâ€™s conclusion depends on which of the following assumptions?

(A) High immune-system activity protects against mental illness better than normal immune-system activity does
(B) Mental illness is similar to physical disease in its effect on body systems
(C) People with high immune-system activity cannot develop mental illness
(D) Mental illness does not cause peopleâ€™s immune-system activity to decrease
(E) Psychological treatment of mental illness is not as effective as is medical treatment

D is my answer. If the mental illness decreates the immunity, then level of immunity can't be used as a mesure to see whether immunity can protect against mental illness.
