nation, having observed that you could provide for
the supply of bread by giving bakers a pecuniary
interest in baking for you, should go on to give a
surgeon a pecuniary interest in cutting off your leg is
enough to make one despair of political humanity."

Shaw's statement would best serve as an illustration
in an argument criticizing which of the following?
(A) Dentists who perform unnecessary dental work
in order to earn a profit
(B) Doctors who increase their profits by specializ-
ing only in diseases that affect a large per-
centage of the population
(C) Grocers who raise the price of food in order to
increase their profit margins
(D) Oil companies that decrease the price of their
oil in order to increase their market share
(E) Bakers and surgeons who earn a profit by sup-
plying other peoples' basic needs

IMO A. The main idea of ques is "even if the result can be achieved in one way, make it complex by doing it the other way even if it is not logical.". That is what A says.

The answer is A
the paragraph says that a person will do anything to gain even a penny
whether doing that task adds value to anything or not.
in the fist statement also the example of dentist is presenting the same idea.

Hope this helps
