How many of you read this question as a strengthen question, please put your hands up?????? :lol:
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.


:-D ...I did treat this as a strengthen question.. I think i read only "most support" from "The statements above, if true, most support which of the following?".

The passage states that health savings accounts will undermine the health of the public because people will not use them for preventive care. Furthermore, people who cannot afford them will not be able to receive even basic care such as vaccinations. The correct answer will be a conclusion that can be supported solely by the facts stated in the argument, without relying on outside information or additional assumptions.

In C - The author argues that people will not get regular preventive examinations, and will therefore not receive medical attention until diseases are advanced. This logic, even if true, does not allow us to conclude that most diseases are detected
during regular preventive examinations.

In D - The argument states that "poor people, who will not be able to afford health savings accounts, will no longer receive vaccinations". Based on this statement, it is reasonable to conclude that some people without health savings are likely to contract infectious diseases. Correct

This is a very bad question by MGMAT.

The fact the people will not be vaccinated does not necessarily means that people have an increase likelihood for getting a disease - for example:

- some mandatory vaccinations are given to a certain population even though the relevant diseases against which those vaccinations were given are not found in the area of that spesific population. and If the population will not leave this area - then no one is likely to get the relevant diseases.

In this case, removing the vaccination, does not contribute to the likelihood.

A better phrasing would have been " might increase the likelihood" rather than saying "are likely".

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.

Type - Inference

The statements above, if true, most support which of the following?

A. Wealthy individuals will not be affected negatively by health savings accounts. - May be true but need not be true
B. Private health insurance will no longer be available. - Out of scope
C. Most diseases are detected during regular preventive examinations. - Most is too strong a word here . At least one or some will be better
D. Some people without health savings accounts are likely to contract infectious diseases. - poor people, who will not be able to afford health savings accounts, will no longer receive vaccinations against infectious diseases.
E. The causal relationship between an individual’s health and that person’s medical care has been adequately documented. - Irrelevant

Answer D

I don't think so, it only mentions "serious illness." Generally you want to stay away from larger jumps like that

A. Wealthy individuals will not be affected negatively by health savings accounts.( Wrong Answer : The word wealthy individuals takes the option out of the scope of the argument.)
B. Private health insurance will no longer be available.( Wrong Answer : No mention has been made in the argument about Private health Insurance)
C. Most diseases are detected during regular preventive examinations.( Wrong Answer : The argument discusses about many diseases but the options converts it into most disease which makes it incorrect.)
D. Some people without health savings accounts are likely to contract infectious diseases.( Right Answer : it has been said in the argument that poor people, who……, will no longer receive vaccinations against infectious diseases, hence some of them may contract infections at some point of time in life.)
E. The causal relationship between an individual’s health and that person’s medical care has been adequately documented.( Wrong Answer: totally out of scope of the argument.)

IMO even D has a flaw. D says "poor people can not afford health savings account and hence can not get vaccinated against infectious diseases". Does that mean not getting a vaccine will result in at least one case of infectious disease among poor people. Experts?
