Premise 1:- Increases in the length of a person's muscles have been shown to improve performance during physical activity and to reduce the risk of injury from such activity.
Premise 2:- Muscles can be lengthened in some individuals if those individuals stretch and drink at least 64 ounces of water everyday.

Which of the following can be correctly inferred from the statements above?

(A) Individuals who stretch and drink 64 ounces of water each day do not run any risk of injury from physical activity. - This broadens the scope not all individuals can achieve this as per the premises stated above hence not the correct answer.
(B) Individuals who do not stretch regularly or drink enough water have a high risk of injury from physical activity - Incorrect. The premises states that drinking water stretching is one of the way to lengthen muscles in some of the individuals.
(C) A regimen of stretching and drinking at least 64 ounces of water is the best way to improve performance during physical activity and to reduce the risk of injury from such activity. - The argument does not state that this is the best way since this choice contains extraneous info this is incorrect.
(D) A program of stretching and drinking at least 64 ounces of water will improve the performance of some individuals during physical activity - Perfect! This program can result in improved performance in "some" individuals. This does not generalize rather it merely connects premise 1 and premise 2 to form a valid inference / conclusion.
(E) Only stretching is required to lengthen a person's muscles. - Incorrect as it omits other possibilities.
