An independent medical research team recently did a survey at a mountain retreat founded to help heavy smokers quit or cut down on their cigarette smoking. Eight percent of those smoking three packs a day or more were able to cut down to one pack a day after they began to take SmokeFree with its patented desire suppressant. Try SmokeFree to help you cut down significantly on your smoking.

Which of the following could be offered as valid criticism of the above advertisement?
I. Heavy smokers may be physically as well as psychologically addicted to tobacco
II. A medicine that is effective for heavy smokers may not be effective for the population of smokers generally
III. A survey conducted at a mountain retreat to aid smokers may yield different results than one would expect under other circumstances

(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) III only
(D) II and III only
(E) I, II and III

I get III "A survey conducted at a mountain retreat to aid smokers may yield different results than one would expect under other circumstances"but not II "A medicine that is effective for heavy smokers may not be effective for the population of smokers generally". How can we stablish II.

Eight percent of those smoking three packs a day or more were able to cut down to one pack a day after they began to take SmokeFree with its patented desire suppressant.

It is mentioned in the passage that the suppressant only helped 8% of the smoker population. But, the conclusion is a more generalized statement. Hence 2 is also a critique against the conclusion.

Hope this helps.

Hello

I somehow do not agree on this
Statement 2 is not even a logical criticism, because if a particular treatment helps heavy smokers, it will help moderate smokers as well
Or may be i have thinking on a different tangent
