It is generally believed that people need to engage in regular and strenuous physical exercise in order to maintain their physical health. Actually, however, low-impact walking —that is, walking at a normal pace, which elevates the heart rate and releases many of the hormones released in more strenuous exercise—is enough. This is evidenced by the strong correlation between the amount of time spent walking and measures of general physical health demonstrated by many studies.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the force of the evidence cited?

A. Most doctors advise that people begin more strenuous and intense physical exercises if they wish to improve their conditioning.
B. People who already perform strenuous physical exercises also tend to walk more than people who do not.
C. People who are fond of strenuous physical exercise also tend to be fond of walking.
D. The studies mentioned did not gather their own data but summarized data collected from other studies.
E. The physical activities described as "strenuous" varied wildly between studies.

Why not C?

It cannot be C because it says that people are fond of it...now being fond of something doesn't mean that I actually do it. I am just fond, I may or may not do it.

It says walking is enough to simulate the effects of strenuous workout. And the study co-relates '' time spent walking and measures of general physical health''.

As per B People who already perform strenuous physical exercises also tend to walk more than people who do not. . So they should have superior health compared to those who just walks because these guys walk more than anyone else. But the argument says walking is enough to have comparable effect.

We need to weaken the force of given evidence which is --- by the strong correlation between the amount of time spent walking and measures of general physical health demonstrated by many studies.

Pre-think:
may be time has a lot to do with this. Also metabolism works in this case. So you need some exercise or a lot of walking or a bit of both. So focus need to be that low impact walking is not enough.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the force of the evidence cited?

A. Most doctors advise that people begin more strenuous and intense physical exercises if they wish to improve their conditioning. --- may be true but this is not doing anything to conclusion
B. People who already perform strenuous physical exercises also tend to walk more than people who do not.--- So this one is a case of bit of both. Walking might be an add-on but actually the exercise is enough for good health, though we cant say for certain but impact of walking is skeptical. but this case is saying that such people have better physical health.
C. People who are fond of strenuous physical exercise also tend to be fond of walking. --- just being the fond of something and not doing it actually has a lot of difference.
D. The studies mentioned did not gather their own data but summarized data collected from other studies. --- This is out of scope.
E. The physical activities described as "strenuous" varied wildly between studies. ---- Still these studies are benchmark. and WRT premise, they are well proven.

B is best from the lot.
