I'm choosing between C and D (A, B, and E are irrelevant)

Seems like "eating at least one apple each day will prevent heart disease" is for 100% sure (but we can't be 100% sure on that) whereas "at least one type of flavonoid helps to prevent heart disease" which is less intense in wording and correct according to the question stem.

Answer is D.

Why cant be answer choice 'E'


Hi Chiru404,

E is out of scope since we don't talk about common causes of heart diseases.

We talk only about antioxidants being a factor in the prevention of heart disease.

Prevention is not equal cause.

A-->B doesn't mean B-->A

Hope this will help.

I marked the correct answer but was a bit doubtful for option E. Your reasoning helped. Thanks.
