Which of the following , if true, helps most to solve apparent paradox described above ?

A. Persons who are overweight tend to have below average levels of unmetabolized sugar in their blood .
B. Fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy products often contain as much sugar as sweets.
C. Consuming large amounts of sugar causes the body to secrete abnormally high amounts of insulin, a sugar-Metabolizing enzyme.
D. Consuming large amounts of sugar can lead eventually to the failure of body to produce enough insulin, a sugar-Metabolizing enzyme
E. Sugar passes into the bloodstream before it can be metabolized.

Which of the following , if true, helps most to solve apparent paradox described above ?

A. Persons who are overweight tend to have below average levels of unmetabolized sugar in their blood. Out of context
B. Fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy products often contain as much sugar as sweets. Out of context
C. Consuming large amounts of sugar causes the body to secrete abnormally high amounts of insulin, a sugar-Metabolizing enzyme. Correct option. The level of unmetabolized sugar rises on consumption, but it also triggers the release of insulin which metabolizes this sugar that has entered the bloodstream as well as any other unmetabolized sugar that may have been lying prior to sugar consumption. Thus, this explains the paradox.
D. Consuming large amounts of sugar can lead eventually to the failure of body to produce enough insulin, a sugar-Metabolizing enzyme. In that case the level of unmetabolized sugar will not be below average levels. This is opposite to what we are looking for.
E. Sugar passes into the bloodstream before it can be metabolized. Re-states a part of the passage.
