During the production of orange juice, calcium is sometimes added as a nutritional supplement. Certain individuals are allergic to calcium, and drinking orange juice fortified with calcium can cause an allergic reaction. Fortunately, some types of orange juice do not have calcium added during production, so calcium-allergic individuals can drink these orange juices without inducing an allergic reaction to calcium.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) There are no other substances besides calcium that are typically present in orange juice that cause allergic reactions.

(B) Orange juice has the same nutritional value whether calcium is added or not.

(C) Calcium-allergic individuals cannot ingest any calcium without having an allergic reaction.

(D) Calcium is often added to other beverages besides orange juice.

(E) In orange juice that does not have calcium added during production, calcium is not naturally present in quantities that cause an allergic reaction.

Query: Why is option A incorrect? on negating, A reads: there are substances besides calcium that are present in orange juice that cause allergic reactions.
In this case, my conclusion breaks down ie calcium-allergic individuals can not drink these juices since they shall get allergy due to the same.

Hi
here are my 2 cents,
see this is an assumption problem so the answer must be true according to the stimulus provided . i think B,c,and D were easier to eliminate for anyone , now let's check option A : it states that no other substance are present in orange juice that can cause allergic to someone, but what if there is already calcium present in the orange juice then it will not matter whether calcium is added during the production or not it still will cause allergic to those , so here it is quite supportive but not thayt much , so option A is wrong , and option E states what we want exactly . hence E is the best choice.

hope it helps
kudos please if you liked it

Option A is wrong because we are quite simply talking about calcium induced allergic reactions only.
