Which of the following most logically completes the passage?

In cars, airbags provide good protection for the chest and head, but little or no protection for legs. A study of injuries resulting from car accidents showed that a large proportion were caused by blows to the legs. Therefore, if airbags protected this area, the risk of serious injury in car accidents would be greatly reduced, especially since......................... .


A. among the drivers included in the study's sample of injuries, only a very small proportion had been wearing an airbag at the time of accident.

B. even those drivers who drive cars with airbags have poor understanding of the degree and kind of protection that airbags afford.

C. an airbag that included protection for the legs would have to be somewhat larger and more expensive than current airbags.

D. although the bones in the legs are large, severe impacts in that area are very likely to cause serious injury, such as compound fracture.

E. drivers generally remain in their seat when they crash, which reduces the likelihood of severe impacts to the legs.

This is an Assumption Question. If you read the prompt carefully,
In cars, airbags provide good protection for the chest and head, but little or no protection for legs. A study of injuries resulting from car accidents showed that a large proportion were caused by blows to the legs. Therefore, if airbags protected this area, the risk of serious injury in car accidents would be greatly reduced, especially
since......................... .

There is no mention of Serious injuries in the whole prompt and the conclusion suddenly talks about the serious injury. So we have to find a bridge to fill this gap.

A. among the drivers included in the study's sample of injuries, only a very small proportion had been wearing an airbag at the time of accident - We are talking about prople who wear airbags. So this is Irrelevant

B. even those drivers who drive cars with airbags have poor understanding of the degree and kind of protection that airbags afford. - It does not matter whether the drivers know the degree of protection that the airbags offer. Even If they know, they can hardly do something about the damage caused to them

C. an airbag that included protection for the legs would have to be somewhat larger and more expensive than current airbags. - Cost is not discussed at all in the prompt. Irrelevant

D. although the bones in the legs are large, severe impacts in that area are very likely to cause serious injury, such as compound fracture. - Exactly bridges the gap as discussed

E. drivers generally remain in their seat when they crash, which reduces the likelihood of severe impacts to the legs. - Still legs are injured and the problem remains. Irrelevant

In Assumption Questions, It is very important to read the conclusion very carefully, word by word, and then think whether there are any gaps in the logic.

Clearly a strengthener question since a conclusion is followed by a premise indicator "since".

Choice D is clearly a strengthener.
