Hi,

I am trying to figure out why the correct answer is option 'c' and not 'b'. Any help in explaining beyond what the OG does would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

You are so lazy, you should type the question and ask people in 4room. I will help you this time.
Advertisement: For sinus pain, three out of four hospitals give their patients Novex. So when you want to the most effective painkiller for sinus pain. Novex is the one to choose.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the advertisement's argument?

A. Some competing brands of painkillers are intended to reduce other kinds of pain in addition to sinus pain.
B. Many hospitals that do not usually use Novex will do so for those patients who cannot tolerate the drug the hospitals usually use.
C. Many drug manufacturers increase sales of their products to the hospitals b selling these products to the hospitals at the lowest price the manufacturers can afford.
D. Unlike some competing brands of painkillers, Novex is available from pharmacies without a doctor's prescription.
E. In clinical trials Novex has been found to be more effective than competing brands of painkillers that have been on the market longer than Novex

Conclusion here is : Novex is the one to choose.
Evidence: three out of four hospitals give their patients Novex
many flaws in this argument:
EG: - "three out of four hospitals" is not representative
or: doctors use Novex not because Novex is good, maybe for many reasons.....

So clearly C shows the flaw in the argument by pointing out other reasons that why doctors use Novex. C adds new information so it should be considered when you deal with weaken or strengthen questions.
