Dietitian: Many diet-conscious consumers are excited about new “fake fat” products designed to give food the flavor and consistency of fatty foods, yet without fat’s harmful effects. Consumers who expect the new fat substitute to help them lose weight arc likely to be disappointed, however. Research has shown that when people knowingly or unknowingly eat foods containing “fake fat,” they tend to take in at least as many additional calories as are saved by eating “fake fat.”

Which one of the following most accurately expresses the conclusion of the dietitian’s argument?

(A) People tend to take in a certain number of daily calories, no matter what types of food they eat
(B) Most consumers who think that foods with “fake fat” are more nutritious than fatty foods are destined to be disappointed.
(C) “Fake fat” products are likely to contribute to obesity more than do other foods.
(D) “Fake fat” in foods is probably not going to help consumers meet weight loss goals.
(E) “Fake fat” in foods is indistinguishable from genuine fat by most consumers on the basis of taste alone.

It's a simple conclusion Q.

Dietitian: Many diet-conscious consumers are excited about new “fake fat” products designed to give food the flavor and consistency of fatty foods, yet without fat’s harmful effects. Consumers who expect the new fat substitute to help them lose weight arc likely to be disappointed, however. Research has shown that when people knowingly or unknowingly eat foods containing “fake fat,” they tend to take in at least as many additional calories as are saved by eating “fake fat.”

Which one of the following most accurately expresses the conclusion of the dietitian’s argument?

(A) People tend to take in a certain number of daily calories, no matter what types of food they eat - INCORRECT
(B) Most consumers who think that foods with “fake fat” are more nutritious than fatty foods are destined to be disappointed. - INCORRECT
(C) “Fake fat” products are likely to contribute to obesity more than do other foods. - THIS GETS THE CLOSEST, BUT THE DIETICIAN IS NOWHERE SAYING THAT "FAKE FAT" PRODUCTS CONTRIBUTE MORE TO OBESITY
(D) “Fake fat” in foods is probably not going to help consumers meet weight loss goals. - CORRECT. THIS EXACTLY CONVEYS WHAT THE DIETICIAN WANTS TO SAY, i.e. "FAKE FAT" PRODUCTS WILL NOT HELP CONSUMERS MEET WEIGHT LOSS GOALS.
(E) “Fake fat” in foods is indistinguishable from genuine fat by most consumers on the basis of taste alone. INCORRECT.

Conclusion: Consumers who expect the new fat substitute to help them lose weight arc likely to be disappointed
Why? (Premise) : Research has shown that when people knowingly or unknowingly eat foods containing “fake fat,” they tend to take in at least as many additional calories as are saved by eating “fake fat.”

(A) People tend to take in a certain number of daily calories, no matter what types of food they eat
The premise says "they tend to take in at least as many additional calories" while this option says "take in a certain number of daily calories".
Certain number = at least? certain number = at most? certain number = average? No idea - Eliminate


(B) Most consumers who think that foods with “fake fat” are more nutritious than fatty foods are destined to be disappointed.
The conclusion says "Consumers who expect the new fat substitute to help them lose weight arc likely to be disappointed"
Likely≠Destined - Eliminate


(C) “Fake fat” products are likely to contribute to obesity more than do other foods.
Nothing in the premise to support this. - Eliminate

(D) “Fake fat” in foods is probably not going to help consumers meet weight loss goals.
This is just a rephrase of the conclusion and the right answer

(E) “Fake fat” in foods is indistinguishable from genuine fat by most consumers on the basis of taste alone.
We are not concerned about taste. Out of scope - Eliminate

Answer is (D)
