Continuous indoor fluorescent light benefits the health of hamsters with inherited heart disease. A group of them exposed to continuous fluorescent light survived twenty-five percent longer than a similar group exposed instead to equal periods of indoor fluorescent light and of darkness.

The method of the research described above is most likely to be applicable in addressing which of the following questions?
(A) Can industrial workers who need to see their work do so better by sunlight or by fluorescent light?
(B) Can hospital lighting be improved to promote the recovery of patients?
(C) How do deep-sea fish survive in total darkness?
(D) What are the inherited illnesses to which hamsters are subject?
(E) Are there plants that require specific periods of darkness in order to bloom?

I strongly believe in B.

The same method of research can be applied to study the recovery of patients in fluorescent light in hospitals.

I think it is E. Because it suggests to look for an option of alternative darkness and light.
Can you please post OA and explanation (if possible)?

D here as well.

B could be a trap answer, although I'm not sure.

Go with B, since the question asks where the method is likely to be applicable.

I figured why E is wrong. I too agree with (B). Good question.

(B) has to be it. The experiment on the hampsters had a positive medical effect, therefore could the same reaction occur in a hospital?

I think that the question is about using the same method of the research: with light, the hamsters life longer, than with light and dark.

In A, you can use let the industrial workers to work by sunlight and by fluorescent, and see in which case they perform better --> same method.

Do u know what i mean?

Thanks.
