I feel E is also the probable answer since one can simply assume that recommendation is helpful only d base temperature is constant for all

Can you please clarify? The assumption is that the base temp is consistent, why is the correct answer B?

I marked E as answer. Shouldn't this be the assumption that you can lower down the temperature in the homes?

Also, in QS, it is written that consider lowering down your temperature not that initial assessment had accurately identified the cause.

I marked B as my answer and i am so happy i got it right. Here is why i think B is the right answer,
The conclusion states that the nursing homes should do exactly what was done previously in order to avoid what happened before,this means they took what they did to remedy the previous similar situation as the solution to the problem,hence saying that the temperature ish was the cause of the leak.

To me there are 2 concrete assumptions - 1. Leaking cause 2. Other refrigerators are the same.

So how can we zero down? I was down to B and C

I chose B.
The argument relies on the fact that the Administrators corrected the leaking problem by increasing the temperature. Due to this relationship, increasing temperature leads to decreased leaks, the administrators assume that the temperature was the problem.
