Claim:
Living in the country is more healthy and relaxed than living in the city

Evidence Against:
Surveys show that people living in the country become ill as often and as seriously as people living in the city, and that they experience an equal amount of stress.

(A) Correct

(B) Nothing in the statements above contradicts the initial claim regarding pace of life.

(C) There is nothing in the statements above to indicate this.

(D) The survey shows that, at worst, a natural rhythm of life is not MORE healthy than city life. It does not go so far as to indicate it is LESS healthy.

(E) The statements above actually contradict this.

Hi - you can't infer (B) based off of a survey, survey data is not always 100% reliable

This is definitely not the rationale for ruling out (B). The survey data is not flawed here and in fact, I would think that on all CR related questions you should assume what you're told is true. CR questions aren't intended to test your ability to rationalize whether or not the premise, conclusion, or data by itself is TRUE but how the logic and/or argument is flawed or can be better supported

Anyway, how I reasoned out (B) is that data showing that people in the country get sick doesn't say anything about their lifestyle directly. All you know is that they get sick AS OFTEN and as SERIOUSLY as those city slickers. They can still be living a slow paced life but they just get sick just as much - for literally whatever reason in the world. And that's pretty much what (A) is saying - living in the country isn't healthier than living in the city.
