Although nondairy coffee lighteners made with coconut oil contain 2 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon, or 7 times more than does whole milk, those lighteners usually contain no cholesterol. Yet one tablespoon of such lighteners causes the consumers blood cholesterol to rise to a higher level than does an identical amount of whole milk, which contains 2 milligrams of cholesterol per tablespoon.

Which one of the following, if true, contributes most to an explanation of the apparent discrepancy noted above?

(A) Nutritionists recommend that adults consume as little saturated fat as possible and no more than 250 milligrams of cholesterol a day.

(B) One gram of saturated fat in food has roughly the same effect on blood cholesterol as 25 milligrams of cholesterol in food.

(C) Light cream, a dairy product that contains 5 times more cholesterol than does whole milk, is often chosen as a lightener by consumers who normally prefer whole milk.

(D) Certain nondairy coffee lighteners made without coconut oil contain less saturated fat and less cholesterol than does whole milk.

(E) The lower the saturated fat content of dairy products, the less cholesterol they usually contain.

Yet one tablespoon of such lighteners causes the consumers blood cholesterol to rise to a higher level than does an identical amount of whole milk, which contains 2 milligrams of cholesterol per tablespoon.

Which one of the following, if true, contributes most to an explanation of the apparent discrepancy noted above?

(A) Nutritionists recommend that adults consume as little saturated fat as possible and no more than 250 milligrams of cholesterol a day. - warns about saturated fat, but doesn't give us the reason why. This doesn't show non-dairy lighteners could raise cholesterol.

(B) One gram of saturated fat in food has roughly the same effect on blood cholesterol as 25 milligrams of cholesterol in food. - Correct

(C) Light cream, a dairy product that contains 5 times more cholesterol than does whole milk, is often chosen as a lightener by consumers who normally prefer whole milk. -is out of scope. The stimulus is about non-dairy lighteners, not light cream.

(D) Certain nondairy coffee lighteners made without coconut oil contain less saturated fat and less cholesterol than does whole milk. -is out scope. The stimulus is about non-dairy lighteners made from coconut oil.

(E) The lower the saturated fat content of dairy products, the less cholesterol they usually contain. -is great, but how do these cholesterol free products raise one's cholesterol.

Answer B
