### HideShow timer Statistics

During the period in which there are no competitive races, two runners--Runners A and Runners B--take part in an experiment measuring their VO2 max, the volume of oxygen an athlete can use. During these sessions, the runners engaged in moderate aerobic activity, or a sustained heart rate between 146-154 beats per minute. At the end of the sessions, Runner A had a greater VO2 max than Runner B. Therefore, once the two runners begin identical intensive training--sessions involving over 168 beats per minute-- for the race season, Runner A will continue to have the greater VO2 max, assuming that neither become injured and that both train with similar intensity

A) Runner A and Runner B had similar VO2 maxes uponentering the study.
B) Regarding their VO2 maxes, runners respond equally to intensive training.
C) Intensive training involves sessions in which athletes maintain a heartbeat over 168 beats per minute.
D) The amount one trains does not influence one’s VO2 max.
E) During the experiment, Runner A did not always have the greater VO2 max than Runner B.

Argument: A and B take part in an experiment measuring their VO2 max
In aerobic activities, VO2 max of A > that of B
CONCLUSION: In intensive training, VO2 max of A > that of B too

A, similar VO2 maxes do not explain the middle status
B, contender, if in aerobic, VO2 max of A > that of B
Aerobic response equally to intensive training => CONCLUSION is valid.
C, too specific and not relevant
D, Whether aerobic training influence intensive training or not is irrelevant
E, out of scope
