It should be C ! Because if we try to negate the option C , the conclusion falls apart. If there are other means by which a person can get CTS , then even if the legislation is passed regarding the video games , it will not help curb the disease.

This is my thinking. What is the OA?

I am with D , though C is also close , but if we notice the argument stem '' Federal legislation that prohibits the sale of video games to minors would help curb this painful wrist condition among adolescents. '' the answer should be closely related to it if possible and it does it better than C . Also to add if D is not considered the assumption falls apart and in C it only weakens a bit .

D

C is incorrect because the conclusion does not indicate that legislators believe the law will stop ALL cases of the disease. Their can be several other factors (in addition to video games) that result in the disease. Stopping some of the cases (those related video games) will have SOME affect on the incidents.

Why not C?

I would go with C.

If there is some alternate cause for carpal tunnel syndrome, the Federal legislation would NOT help curb this painful condition among adolescents.

So this option is defender.


Oh sorry didn't read it properly : yangsta8 is right : D for me too.


By POE,
C and D remain good contenders.

But, one thing that could eliminate C - Always choose options that uses more info given in the question.
C tries to be a little OOS, and speak about an assumption that is all beyond the legislation itself. Whereas, D speaks of the legislation(Legislation passed, Yet parents could buy), and thus is more relevant in GMAT.

Thanks!

Yes C is a little too extreme I think.

Answer has to be D for the conclusion to hold firm about sales.

My choice is D as well. The conclusion is stating that the legislation would help curb the wrist problem. The main issue here is that prohibiting the sale of it would reduce carpel tunnel. However if there is a way to go around this law then it would make defeat the purpose of creating this legislation.

To continue on that point... Sorry for not completing it.
That would make A out of scope and D would assume that parents are not bending the law.

I did not even read the option D completely....made it out of scope since Parents are coming into the discussion. Chose option C. On a second look, i realized that D is correct.

Lesson learnt : Read all options carefully. When you hit an interesting contender early on, you will start ignoring other options, coz of your bias towards an option and your brain asking you to rush to beat the time. Never ignore any option without completely reading it. I tell this to myself everytime, but somehow fall into the same trap again and again.

+ 1 for D.In most cases it is the adults who buy video games for their children so banning the sail of video game would not curtail the problem, but making parents aware of carpel tunnel will definitely help.

I got C.
(C) Playing video games is the only way an adolescent can develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

conclusion: Federal legislation that prohibits the sale of video games to minors would help curb this painful wrist condition among adolescents.
Negating,
(C) Playing video games is NOT NECESSARILY the only way an adolescent can develop carpal tunnel syndrome. If one says this, then there are ways other than playing videogames because of which an adolescent can develop CTS. This means that even when the Fed. legislation is passes, minor will still suffer from CTS because of other ways to get it.
Hence, Fed. Legislation would not help curb CTS among adolescents.

Is my reasoning right?
Pl correct if wrong.

Doctor: Research shows that adolescents who play video games on a regular basis are three times as likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome as are adolescents who do not play video games. Federal legislation that prohibits the sale of video games to minors would help curb this painful wrist condition among adolescents.


c)Playing video games is the only way an adolescent can develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
Negating, Playing video games is NOT NECESSARILY the only way an adolescent can develop CTS.
What does this mean?
This means that there may be other ways that adolescents develop CTS.
Conclusion: If Fed. legislation says NO VIDEO GAMES, then CTS would come down.
According to C, there may be other ways ppl can get CTS, so "even if Fed. leg. says NO video games, it may not curb CTS"
Hence, IMO correct.
d) Negating, Most parents would NOT refuse to purchase video games for their adolescent children. I don't see how this option can BREAK the conclusion. Moreover, this option mentions nothing about CTS.

Is my reasoning correct? Pl help
