Herbed Wellness, a manufacturer of herbal products, wants its new headache remedy to be as effective as possible while using only natural ingredients. A controlled study has found that 58 percent of headache sufferers obtain complete headache relief from a dose of caffeine equivalent to that typically found in a cup of coffee. Therefore, even though the vast majority of its customers are health-conscious avoiders of coffee, Herbed Wellness should add caffeine to its new herbal headache treatment; doing so will prove both efficacious and cost-effective.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most useful in evaluating the claim that caffeine will be efficacious in relieving headaches among Herbed Wellness customers?

A. Is the headache relief provided by caffeine as long-lasting as that provided by over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin?

B. What percentage of the study participants were regular coffee drinkers who suffer from caffeine-withdrawal headaches?

C. Is caffeine less expensive per dose than the individual herbs used in the headache formulation?

D. Does synthetic caffeine qualify as a natural substance?

E. What percentage of Herbed Wellness customers will shun the new headache remedy if it contains caffeine?

Definitely A is not the answer. Since Natural product compared with Artificial product. The whole focus is about using Natural product.
Also the argument states caffinee works on 58% of the participants in relieving their head aches.

So 'B' states - if 58% of the participants reason for their headache is withdrawal of caffine, then caffine cannot be the solution for handling head ache and the whole argument shatters and hence B.

Even I chose the wrong answer :( It didn't strike me while going thru the argument.

I read B and immediately thought it as the right answer...the other ones don't seem so attractive...it the study group is biased, then the whole argument is flawed.

It is B, if caffeine withdrawal is the cause,then adding caffeine would obviously be efficacious
