No doubt, option D is correct.
But, what's wrong with option c?

IMO you're supposed to find a conclusion and you cannot deduce "C" from any of the premises in the text.

Is C wrong because of the difference between "many" and "most"? If yes, then can someone please explain the distinction?

Advocates insist that health savings accounts are an efficient method to reduce medical expenses. However, widespread adoption of these accounts will soon undermine the public’s health. One reason for this is that most people will be reluctant to deplete their accounts to pay for regular preventive examinations, so that in many cases a serious illness will go undetected until it is far advanced. Another reason is that poor people, who will not be able to afford health savings accounts, will no longer receive vaccinations against infectious diseases.

The statements above, if true, most support which of the following?
a) Wealthy individuals will not be affected negatively by health savings accounts.
b) Private health insurance will no longer be available.
c) Most diseases are detected during regular preventive examinations.
d) Some people without health savings accounts are likely to contract infectious diseases.
e) The causal relationship between an individual’s health and that person’s medical care has been adequately
documented.

I was rooting for C until I realized "Most diseases" and "serious illness" dont necessarily overlap. wins as the second reason supports it. Since the poor people (some people) dont get vaccinations they are likely to contract infectious diseases. and thanks all for sharing all those anime..

C is not correct because it is an assumption that should be taken. It is not the conclusion.
It is of the form: X because C ... not of the form X, therefore C.

Negated A/B/E as they bring outside information into the answers. Got struck between C and D. Finally negated C as stimulus takes about cases of serious illness going undetected rather than detection of most diseases (which could include non serious cases too)

I choose C. What is the OA ?

The OA is D.

I answered C. I wasn't convinced with MGMAT's explanation.

C is correct. But, looking closely, it is an ASSUMPTION and not a CONCLUSION.

C is an assumption for the premise presented in the third sentence. D is the conclusion of the entire argument.

ME!! I fell for that.

C is the correct answer if the stem is a STRENGTHENING ONE.

BUT, this question is a MUST BE TRUE. The only answer is D. No ambiguity at all here. Please read the stem again if you have any doubts.
