Caffeine must be as beneficial for weight loss as exercise. After all, when a person consumes caffeine the chemical stimulates his or her metabolism in almost the exact same way as the body does when that person is involved in physical exercise.

The argument above requires which of the following assumptions?

The body’s short-term response to any stimulant is an effective measure of that stimulant’s long-term effect on the body.

The consumption of caffeine is an effective way for a person to control his or her weight.

Caffeine has no negative side effects on a person’s health.

The effect an activity has on the body’s metabolism level is an adequate measure of how that activity will affect weight loss.

A person who consumes caffeine is unlikely to supplement that consumption with physical exercise or other methods of weight loss.
