Obvious answers that are out : A, C, D
Now between B and E i would choose B.
The argument in question is average amount of time a patient spends with a physician. Option E says its financially beneficial to see as many patients a physician can. We still dont know the average time per patient.
B precisely implies more option to consider====> more time a patient has to spend

Hey everyone,

I picked Option 'E', for the reason that the argument states that physicians get to spend less time with patients and that the actual time spent at the office is higher. In option 'E' , it states that physicians get to spend very little time (solves 1st condition) and that physicians have to see as many patients as possible. In that case, waiting time increases and therefore patients spend longer duration at the office.

Am I thinking too much.?

Why did you assume that there is an increase in waiting time?

Spending 10 mins on one patient and spending 10 mins on 5 patients doesn't increase the average time of patients.

B clearly states that since the number of diagnosis has increased, patients are getting diagnosed for multiple things now.

IMO B is the best option available rest either do nothing or just weaken that physicians are spending more time.

both A and E does not resolve but make the paradox more complex.
C and D are out of scope.
B implies that the time correlates with more new options of treatments.

So the discrepancy is: the physicians think that because of the insurance companies policies, physicians are not able to spend enough time with the patients while they actually are spending more time with the patients. Why the disconnect between what they think and what is the reality? Let us look at the options-
A. Patients are more likely to be in a hurry nowadays and are less willing to wait a long time to see their physician. This should rather decrease the time spent. Incorrect.

B. Physicians today typically have a wider range of options in diagnosis and treatment to consider with the patient before prescribing. Probable contender. Keywords: "wider range of options in diagnosis". Focus on "wider". So since they have more range of options for diagnosis and treatment they might be spending more time with patients. Hold.

C. Physicians are increasingly likely to work in group practices, sharing the responsibility of night and weekend work. Gives no information about time spent with patients. Irrelevant. Incorrect.

D. Most patients would rather trust their physicians than their insurance companies to make decisions about their treatment. Again, no information about actual time spent between patients and physicians. Irrelevant. Incorrect.

E. Since the insurance companies pay physicians a set amount for each office visit, it is to physicians’ financial advantage to see as many Patients as possible. This should have rather decreased the time spent. Incorrect.

Hence, B.
