I picked C initially

But I think it should be D

The last sentence is 'even if volunteering does not increase longevity........what would you think?. The author specifically asks you to conclude on 'that statistic' not about longevity or endorphins

So we or rather I would think people find it difficult to keep their volunteering commitments

Cheers,
Unplugged

Really tough one. I did not understand the meaning of the last sentence. But, I will go with B.

If my interpretation of the question is right, it says that the statistics of people doing volunteer work will still be there since more and more people want to do this work.

Since the statistics says that the volunteers are living longer, whilst volunteering doesn't boost longevity.

A says that the no. of women volunteering is more than men. ===> statistics grows towards one direction here.
the second clause says that women live longer than men. ===> this confirms that statistics will always say that volunteers will live longer. Because majority of people covered by statistics living longer is volunteering(Women).

a very good question. Thanks for posting it.
A is what I picked up. Now I did have the benefit of hindsight because you had checked c and it was evidently a wrong choice.
the author's argument is the volunteering does not boost longevity. The most appropriate choice that completes the author's thought is that women live longer than men anyway. Since, women participated more in volunteering than men, the statistics that volunteers live longer than non-volunteers is not due to longevity boosting effect of volunteering.
D, E and B are out because they do not really support author's argument. C is ruled out because it actually refutes author's suggestion that volunteering does not boost longevity.
