abhimahna, I'd appreciate some help.
Judging by the fact that barely anyone has disagreed with the OA as C, I feel I'm not picking something very obvious in this question.
About C: Sure, long-term medication will add to the treatment cost of $11,000, but we don't know how much. It could be less than $1,500, which is the difference of the two mentioned amounts. It could also be more. Since the amount isn't mentioned, nor is any indicator of the significance of the extra cost mentioned, I ruled out C.
About A: The prethinking fort this question for me was: 'The therapeutic cost is higher than a one-time average treatment cost. A statement telling us that the therapy saves the elderly from multiple falls could weaken the conclusion.' Option A tells us exactly that. People who didn't undergo the entire therapy had more falls than did the people who underwent the entire therapy. So, the therapy's cost is indeed justified. Multiple falls * $11,000 > One time therapy cost of $12,500.
Please shine some light on my dimwit head.




option C is telling just about the cons of emergency treatment but no mention of the new program. So, how the answer C can be.Moreover , the conclusion is about new program . we have the an aspect of New program. The option D gives some positive points. therefore answer should be D

robu, D talks about overmedication. We don't know if the treatment for fall involves overmedication.

Can someone explain why Option E is wrong?

Could it not be possible that regular visits of health professionals is the reason for additional cost (in case of 12500$)? It could/could not be. Is that the reason this answer choice is wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Chef ,

Here I go:

E is actually a strengthener to the argument. It is saying the new technique is going to have more costs and thus what the author concluded "it is not justified" is true.

Plus, why this cost os more is irrelevant. What author said is still true.

But we need to weaken the conclusion. Hence, E is out.

Does that make sense?

Hello Moderators,

Do you think the question tag should include 'weaken' as well? That way it will be clear that this question is not a completely 'conclusion' family. It may help some people (like me) who are trying to search for questions using Tags for practice.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you abhimahna!

I have come across few more posts on the forum with similar observations. Some do not have OA as well. I have addressed them to the moderators. I hope the other moderators are as quick as you are in addressing those observations :-)

PS: Absolutely LOVED your debrief of Verbal journey. Very inspiring as well. Congratulations on the Dream score!
