An analysis of the number and severity of health problems among the population of a certain community showed that elderly people who were born in the community and resided there all their lives had significantly worse health than elderly people who had moved there within the past five years.

Each of the following, if true, contributes to an explanation of the difference in health between these two groups EXCEPT:

(A) People who have the means to relocate tend to be in better-than-average health.
(B) Although most people who have moved into the community are young, most people who have lived in the community all their lives are elderly.
(C) The quality of health care available to the community is lower than that for the rest of the country.
(D) Changes in one’s environment tend to have a beneficial effect on one’s health.
(E) People in good health are more likely to move to new communities than are people in poor health.

Each of the following, if true, contributes to an explanation of the difference in health between these two groups EXCEPT:


Quote:

Says relocation means people are healthier. Resolves paradox.

Quote:
(B) Although most people who have moved into the community are young, most people who have lived in the community all their lives are elderly.

Correct. Doesn't explain paradox. Also brings in concept of young(er) people, when we should be talking about elderly.

Quote:
(C) The quality of health care available to the community is lower than that for the rest of the country.

Community health care low. Therefore, movers are healthier. Resolves paradox.

Quote:
(D) Changes in one’s environment tend to have a beneficial effect on one’s health.

Movers are healthier because moving is change. Change is good for health.

Quote:
(E) People in good health are more likely to move to new communities than are people in poor health.

Same as A. Relocation means healthier people. Resolves Paradox

I actually went with C
answer has to be an option which is OFS of the given conclusion of argument
I am not sure why B is correct ?

I understand that B is a correct choice , but I think A is also correct ,

(A) People who have the means to relocate tend to be in better-than-average health.
ok that does not solve anything ,because it compares people who move with the average people ,
we want to compare the elderly who moved with the elderly who stayed ,
even if the elderly who moved have better-than-average health , we don't know yet why the health of elderly who stayed,
maybe they also have better-than-average
unlike choice E , which compares people who move with people who don't
please let me know where's my mistake , Thanks ,
