Share your thoughts on this question.

Within 20 years it will probably be possible to identify the genetic susceptibility an individual may have toward any particular disease. Eventually, effective strategies will be discovered to counteract each such susceptibility. Once these effective strategies are found, therefore, the people who follow them will never get sick.

The argument above is based on which of the following assumptions?

(A) For every disease there is only one strategy that can prevent its occurrence.
(B) In the future, genetics will be the only medical specialty of any importance.
(C) All human sicknesses are in part the result of individuals’ genetic susceptibilities.
(D) All humans are genetically susceptible to some diseases.
(E) People will follow medical advice when they are convinced that it is effective.

Should be a clear C.

In P author is talking about genetic susceptibility and effective strategies to overcome them.
In C author is concluding that people will never get sick once effective strategies are found

Clearly the Assumtion should show some corelation between P and C i.e between "genetic susceptibility" and "never get sick"

I also chose C. But, I have a doubt here. What is the meaning of "in part" in C?

Undoubtedly its C. Because it assumes that if genetical susceptibilities & subsequently their cobatant strategies are discovered then nobody will ever fall ill. As if there were no other diseases other than those caused by gentic susceptibilities.
