### HideShow timer Statistics

Dr. A: The new influenza vaccine is useless at best and possibly dangerous. I would never use it on a patient.
Dr. B: But three studies published in the Journal of Medical Associates have rated that vaccine as unusually effective.
Dr. A: The studies must have been faulty because the vaccine is worthless.
In which of the following is the reasoning most similar to that of Dr. A?
(A) Three of my patients have been harmed by that vaccine during the past three weeks, so the vaccine is unsafe.
(B) Jerrold Jersey recommends this milk, and I donâ€™t trust Jerrold Jersey, so I wonâ€™t buy this milk.
(C) Wingzz tennis balls perform best because they are far more effective than any other tennis balls.
(D) Iâ€™m buying Vim Vitamins. Doctors recommend them more often than they recommend any other vitamins, so Vim Vitamins must be good.
(E) Since University of Muldoon graduates score about 20 percent higher than average on the GMAT, Sheila Lee, a University of Muldoon graduate, will score about 20 percent higher than average when she takes the GMAT.

Please explain the reason as well.

I would choose C....

Because this statement directly relates to a personal opinion...

Dr. A provides a personal opinion about vaccine and makes his conclusion....

Choice B is there to catch you i think, because the primary thing in this paragraph is an opinion of Doctor A about the vaccine and not about the Journal....

I don't know if i expressed myself clearly here...

Agree with simaQ.

Dr A expresses his personal opinion - this is similar to the reasoning followed in C

Also got (C) by POE in about 2.5 min. C uses the same logic, just in a positive tone.
