Head of a regional psychiatric association: As an organization, we have found that patients over the last two decades are increasingly likely to suffer from depression that in some cases can lead to an early death. At the same time, we have found that those patients who already practice some form of spirituality tend to be less likely to suffer from depression and thus to live longer and healthier lives. A recent study in a major psychological journal confirms this experience. As a result, we suggest that our members begin encouraging their patients to explore spirituality in the hopes that it will provide them with longer and healthier lives.

The primary argument made by the head of the regional psychological association depends on which of the following assumptions?

A. All of the patients being treated by psychiatrists in the regional psychiatric association are suffering from depression.
B. All patients noted for their longer and healthier lives were practicing the same form of spirituality.
C. All members of the psychiatric association must also pursue spirituality in order to make educated recommendations to their patients.
D. When untreated, depression is a serious condition that leads to death.
E. All forms of spirituality are equally healthy, and any form of spirituality will provide patients with longer and healthier lives.

E is only the correct answer here.

The conclusion is that "we suggest that our members begin encouraging their patients to explore spirituality in the hopes that it will provide them with longer and healthier lives."

Premise is "Those patients who already practice some form of spirituality tend to be less likely to suffer from depression and thus to live longer and healthier lives."

We have to assume that ALL FORMS OF SPIRITUALITY will have similar impact.

E highlights this.

E is the correct answer here

The argument contends that patients who already practice some form of spirituality tend to be less likely to suffer from depression and thus to live longer and healthier lives.
Here no specifics about the form of spirituality is mentioned.
However, the argument concludes that we suggest that our members begin encouraging their patients to explore spirituality .

Assumption:- that any form of spirituality pursued by patient will lead to longer and healthier lives

Boil it down- we suggest that our members begin encouraging their patients to explore spirituality in the hopes that it will provide them with longer and healthier lives.
Type-assumption

A. All of the patients being treated by psychiatrists in the regional psychiatric association are suffering from depression. - Incorrect - the argument will still hold true even if not all patients in RPA are suffering from depression
B. All patients noted for their longer and healthier lives were practicing the same form of spirituality. - Incorrect- This need not be true, there might be other factors influencing long and healthy lives
C. All members of the psychiatric association must also pursue spirituality in order to make educated recommendations to their patients. - Incorrect -
An analogous logic can be only a surgeon who himself has undergone XYZ operation can give educated recommendations to their patients

D. When untreated, depression is a serious condition that leads to death. - Irrelevant
E. All forms of spirituality are equally healthy, and any form of spirituality will provide patients with longer and healthier lives. -Correct

Answer E

Could A be a possible answer? If depression is solved by spirituality, then in order for the association's patients to live longer lives through spirituality, they need to be depressed. Why doesn't this work?

IMO, this is a bad question.The first part of option E(the correct answer) is a loooong way from being correct.

Spirituality = any form of spirituality is not that strong a choice to be an assumption.

Will wait for expert views...

The word "ALL" is what is wrong with A).
