Although aspirin has been proven to eliminate moderate fever associated with some illnesses, many doctors no longer routinely recommend its use for this purpose. A moderate fever stimulates the activity of the body’s disease-fighting white blood cells and also inhibits the growth of many strains of disease-causing bacteria.
If the statements above are true, which of the following conclusions is most strongly supported by them?
(A) Aspirin, an effective painkiller, alleviates the pain and discomfort of many illnesses.
(B) Aspirin can prolong a patient’s illness by eliminating moderate fever helpful in fighting some diseases.
(C) Aspirin inhibits the growth of white blood cells, which are necessary for fighting some illnesses.
(D) The more white blood cells a patient’s body produces, the less severe the patient’s illness will be.
(E) The focus of modern medicine is on inhibiting the growth of disease-causing bacteria within the body.


B makes it but so do C, and E while A and D restate the facts provided in the premise of the argument C is actually a better choice if you care to read all the options.

Wrong english grammar. How can something alleviate pain of an illness

(B) Aspirin can prolong a patient’s illness by eliminating moderate fever helpful in fighting some diseases.
Concludes it all.

(C) Aspirin inhibits the growth of white blood cells, which are necessary for fighting some illnesses.
Could have been a potential answer. But it used a word " some " illnesses. It should have been the patient's illness.

(D) The more white blood cells a patient’s body produces, the less severe the patient’s illness will be.
No direct relationship has been established in the premise.

(E) The focus of modern medicine is on inhibiting the growth of disease-causing bacteria within the body.
Totally out of scope.
