“Healthy-Oh’s breakfast cereal is one-of-akind good for you! Among breakfast cereals, only Healthy-Oh’s has five grams of psyllium fiber. Psyllium fiber is good for your heart and helps you to lose weight. Doctors and nutritionists recommend at least twenty grams of fiber per day, so why not get twenty-five percent of your fiber the
easy way with Healthy-Oh’s cereal?”

Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the product’s claim to be “one-of-akind good for you”?

(A) Healthy-Oh’s is, in fact, the only cereal to use psyllium fiber.
(B) Any fiber, including that found in many other cereals, has the same benefits to health as psyllium fiber.
(C) Many doctors and nutritionists actually recommend at least twenty-five grams of fiber per day, and they base their recommendations on total calorie intake.
(D) Another brand of cereal used to contain psyllium fiber, but it was not successful and is no longer on the market.
(E) Psyllium fiber is also found in other products, such as powdered fiber supplements.

(A) Healthy-Oh’s is, in fact, the only cereal to use psyllium fiber. Kinda strengthens the doctors recommendation
(B) Any fiber, including that found in many other cereals, has the same benefits to health as psyllium fiber.Correct. If something else has the same benefits then psyllium is not the only one to cause it. Weakens the argument
(C) Many doctors and nutritionists actually recommend at least twenty-five grams of fiber per day, and they base their recommendations on total calorie intake.Basis of recommendations is not relevant
(D) Another brand of cereal used to contain psyllium fiber, but it was not successful and is no longer on the market.How successful it is. not relevant
(E) Psyllium fiber is also found in other products, such as powdered fiber supplements.It may be found in other products. but how much is unclear. so does not weaken the argument

Top Contributor

We have been asked to weaken the company's claim: Healthy-Oh’s breakfast cereal is one-of-a kind good for you.

Let us take a look at the answer options --

Option A - Incorrect

If it is in fact the only one that uses psyllium fiber, then it strengthens the author's claim "one-of-a-kind good for you".

Option B - Correct

This actually directly attacks the claim made by the company -- "one of a kind". If the health benefits provided by psyllium are also provided by many others, then the company's claim falls apart.

Option C - Incorrect

If doctors base their recommendation on calorie intake, this recommendation actually kind of strengthens the claim. Because we are told that psyllium is good for the heart and helps a person lose weight.

Option D - Incorrect

Are there any other such brands still in the market? WE do not know. If there are, it weakens the argument; If no, it strengthens the argument.
Since, it can go both ways, we cannot evaluate the claim "one of kind good for you".

Option E - Incorrect

We are talking about breakfast cereals. Also, we do not whether such supplements account for at least 25% of dietary requirements. If they are found only in trace amounts, it is not of much use.
