Ciara distrusts modern medicine. She says that the drugs prescribed by doctors are just synthetic poisons that they dispense to make money. She uses only herbs and essential oils to treat her health problems, declaring that they are much safer than prescription drugs because they come directly from nature.

Which of the following, if true, most weakens Ciara's argument?

A Some doctors dispense drugs for free to needy patients.
B Some common drugs are derived from plants and other natural substances.
C Some herbs and natural substances are quite harmful if ingested.
D Sometimes the herbal remedies Ciara takes do not relieve her symptoms.
E Herbal supplements and oils are often quite expensive.

Was also confused between b and c, but I believe C is the answer.
Explanation:
Clara's assumption: Natural substances are safer.

B. This option doesn't state if they are safer or not
C. This hits directly at the assumption.

The argument talks about Ciara who trusts herbs and essential oils to treat
her health problems. Ciara also believes that the drugs prescribed by doctors
are synthetic poison.

In order to weaken this argument, Option C(Some herbs and natural substances
are quite harmful if ingested)
provides an alternate reasoning why herbs are
not to be trusted and can be equally harmful.
