An advertisements states:
Like Danaxil, all headache pills can stop your headache. But when you are in pain, you want relief right away. Danaxil is for youâ€”no headache pill stops pain more quickly.
Evelyn and Jane are each suffering from a headache. Suppose Evelyn takes Danaxil and Jane takes its leading competitor.
Which one of the following can be properly concluded from the claims in the advertisement?
(A) Evelynâ€™s headache pain will be relieved, but Janeâ€™s will not.
(B) Evelynâ€™s headache pain will be relieved more quickly than Janeâ€™s.
(C) Evelynâ€™s headache will be relieved at least as quickly as Janeâ€™s.
(D) Janeâ€™s headache pain will be relieved at the same time as is Evelynâ€™s.
(E) Jane will be taking Danaxil for relief from headache pain.

This implies that no other pill heals faster then danaxil. But there is also a possibility that another pill can heal as fast as danaxil. Note that the argument does not say that danaxil is the fastest healing pill.

IMO, (C) Evelynâ€™s headache will be relieved at least as quickly as Janeâ€™s. is a better choice.

Excellent. One more C. B is a deadly trap.

In C, we have to assume that headache and headache pain are the same.

Well, someone said ths is a poorly worded question and I agree. Don't think we will see something worded like this on the real test but it's still a good logical and trap question.

I am thinking about the question using math inequalities (you know: less than, great than). In this case, I am thinking of time it takes for pain relief as the value in question.

From "Danaxil is for youâ€”no headache pill stops pain more quickly" we have

Danaxil < all other pills.

Lets assume Jane took some pill N. In choosing between B and C:

B) Danaxil < N --- Looks right.

C) Danaxil <= N --- But Danaxil is < all other pills.

From this, I am going with B
