can anyone help
I have a little query .I picked C.My line of reasoning was as the option says that the loss of sleep caused impairment of judgement and the people reported that missing a night's sleep immediately lifted their depression,cant it be a case where because of this impairment in judgement they felt relieved of their depression while actually they were not.As soon as they gained proper judgement they they felt depressed.So this is supposed to mean loss of slep actually does not lift depression and gives the strongest cause for it not to be used as a treatment.

According to a review of 61 studies of patients suffering from severly debilitating depression, a large majority of the patients reported that missing a night's sleep immediately lifted their depression.Yet sleep deprivation is not used to treat depression even though the conventional treatments,which use drugs and electric shocks,often have serious side effects.

which of the following,if true,best explains the fact that sleep deprivation is not used as a treatment for depression?

Type - explain
Boil it down - for most people , sleep deprivation reduces depression
- Yet Sleep deprivation is not used to treat depression even though conventional treatments have side effects

1. For a small percentage of depressed patients,missing a night's sleep induces a temporary sense of euphoria. - Irrelevant
2. Keeping depressed patients awake is more difficult than keeping awake people who are not depressed. - Irrelevant - difficulty is not a concern here
3. Prolonged loss of sleep can lead to temporary impairment of judgement comparable to that induced by consuming several ounces of alcohol. -Irrelevant
4. The dramatic shifts in mood connected with sleep and wakefulness have not been traced to particular changes in brain chemistry. - Irrelevant
5. Depression returns in full force as soon as the patient sleeps for even a few minutes. - Correct - okay so reduction in depression is temporary
