This is a conclusion question.

(A) Skilled practitioners of kickboxing aerobics are unlikely to experience injuries from overextending while kicking.
This choice could be true, but this choice isn't the conclusion that the argument seeks.

(B) To reduce the risk of injuries, beginners at kickboxing aerobics should avoid trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners.
Correct. This choice is strongly supported by the argument. The argument stated that the high risk is due to the fact that beginners try to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners. Thus, the argument suggests that beginners shouldn't try to do that.

(C) Beginners at kickboxing aerobics will not experience injuries if they avoid trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners.
Trying to match the high kicks is just one reason. Beginners could suffer injuries because of other reasons. This choice is wrong (because of "will not").

(D) Kickboxing aerobics is more risky than forms of aerobic exercise that do not involve high kicks.
This choice could be true, or not. But this choice isn't the conclusion that the argument tries to seek.

(E) Most beginners at kickboxing aerobics experience injuries from trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners.
This choice could be an evidence that supports the argument, but this choice isn't conclusion that the argument tries to seek.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the aerobics instructor’s statements?

(A) Skilled practitioners of kickboxing aerobics are unlikely to experience injuries from overextending while kicking.
As per the passage people are very likely to get injured.

(B) To reduce the risk of injuries, beginners at kickboxing aerobics should avoid trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners.
Correct.

(C) Beginners at kickboxing aerobics will not experience injuries if they avoid trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners.
There many ways in which a person can get injured.

(D) Kickboxing aerobics is more risky than forms of aerobic exercise that do not involve high kicks.
Than aerobics that do not involve high kicks --》this ia an extreme statement. We just know that kickboxing is more dangerous than many other forms of excercise.

(E) Most beginners at kickboxing aerobics experience injuries from trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners.
Most? Exaggerated.

B is my final answer.
As the instructor says "overextension is very likely to occur when beginners try to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners." It is reasonable to assume that "To reduce the risk of injuries, beginners at kickboxing aerobics should avoid trying to match the high kicks of more skilled practitioners".
C is tempting but wrong as it uses "WILL NOT" which is too strong.

Hit Kudos if it helps. I still need many more Kudos to open the TESTS. Thank you!
