The following is taken from an advertisement for a new prescription drug:

“Are you one of the millions of Americans who have occasional trouble sleeping? Do the stresses of modern life prevent you from getting enough exercise and keeping
to a regular sleep schedule? Do you find yourself lying awake worrying about the sleep you’re not getting? New Nocturna can help you get a full night’s sleep every night. Ask your doctor about Nocturna. When nature needs a little help, try Nocturna.”

Which of the following is implied by the above argument?

(A) Many people wouldn’t need to use a prescription drug if they got more exercise and kept to a regular sleep schedule.
(B) Nocturna is more effective than similar sleep aids on the market.
(C) Millions of Americans have occasional trouble sleeping.
(D) Overuse of caffeine is one of the factors contributing to sleep problems among Americans.
(E) The only way for you to get a good night’s sleep is by taking Nocturna. STOP DO NOT TURN THE PAGE UNTIL TOLD T

Your logic about C is not correct i Guess,,, C is wrong because it is restating what is mentioned in the Question stem, right answer will be an inference.

Dear Experts, kindly explain how (A) is the correct answer. This option is referring to prescription drugs in general, whereas the argument mentions sleeping drugs in specific.

This question I find it weird.
Implied means restatement is wrong ?
Coming to the options -
I cannot justify the usage of the word "many" - If there are billions of people living in American continent.
millions become few. That might be only one of the reasons to take drug but, many people- wait a minute no where there is quantifying that many people are experiencing this issue.
Can someone throw some light please.

Please please include the source whenever you post a new question!!

This is another flawed question from... well, Google seems to think it's from GMAT for Dummies, and I think I've been tagged on about a dozen awful questions from that book. Maybe some of them are perfectly fine, but this isn't one of them. It really doesn't resemble a real GMAT question, unfortunately.

So please don't spend any more of your valuable time on this!

As GMATNinja said, this is poor attempt to make a question complicated. Kudos to those who questioned the OA. Also, an inference/implication could be a verbatim answer, it would just be an easy question.

Hi Everyone,

Here is the official Explanation for this question. This question is from GMAT for Dummies.

For this question, you need to choose the statement that’s implied by one of the premises of the prescription-drug advertisement. Choice B may be something the manufacturer wants you to believe, but the ad doesn’t compare Nocturna and other sleep aids, so this inference isn’t warranted. Choice C is actually stated in the premises and therefore, by definition, isn’t an implication. The creator of the prescription sleep aid doesn’t choose to imply that a chemical like caffeine could be responsible for disrupting people’s sleep, so D is out. Choice E may be a conclusion for the argument, but it’s not an implication of a specific premise. It concerns people in general rather than just those who have trouble sleeping, so it’s not a precise implication. Choice A is the best answer because the second sentence of the argument clearly implies that two of the causes for sleep problems are lack of exercise and an irregular sleep schedule; with this information, you can infer that exercise and a regular sleep schedule would enhance sleep.

Hope this helps. All the best.
