It is more desirable to have some form of socialized medicine than a system of medical care relying on the private sector. Socialized medicine is more broadly accessible than is private-sector system. In addition, since countries with socialized medicine have a lower infant mortality rate than do countries with a system relying entirely on the private sector, socialized medicine seems to be technologically superior.

Which one of the following best indicates a flaw in the argument about the technological superiority of socialized medicine?

(A) The lower infant mortality rate might be due to the systems allowing greater access to Medical care
(B) There is no necessary connection between the economic system of socialism and Technological achievement.
(C) Infant mortality is a reliable indicator of the quality of medical care for children.
(D) No list is presented of the countries whose infant mortality statistics are summarized under the two categories, "€œsocialized" and "€œprivate-sector".
(E) The argument presupposes the desirability of socialized medicine, which is what the Argument seeks to-establish.

As a doctor can say that lower infant mortality is not always because better access, the key role is effectiveness of care. You can make tens free visits and not get effective care

I do not think that there is any causality in the argument.At the least, there may be a link/ relation between low infant mortality rate and technical superiority.

There are four common flaws in reasoning:
1. Improper comparison
2. Correlation leads to Causality
3. Use of limited samples
4. Failure to consider complete picture

The flaw in this question falls in either no.2 or no.4

The argument: Motality rate of children in SM < that of PS
Conclusion: SM is technollogically superior to PS
Flaw: There are maybe other causal reasons.

(A) stated the correct answer
(B) Out of scope. No one mention of economic system of socialism and technological achievement
(C) Irrelevant
(D) Irrelevant
(E) Not the case the argument stated

I am confused between Option B and A. While B goes a little out of the scope of the stimulus by stating " Economic system of Socialism" , answer option A seems more like a restatement of the premise than identifying a flaw in reasoning. The premise here is that socialized medicine is more broadly accessible than is private sector system and the conclusion can follow from it rather than being a flaw in the reasoning. B on the other hand could indicate a flaw that even though socialized medicine is effective it need not necessarily indicate technological superiority.

Socialized medicine is more broadly accessible than is private-sector system

since countries with socialized medicine have a lower infant morality rate than do countries with a system relying entirely on the private sector, socialized medicine seems to be technologically superior

A - If socialised medicine is more broadly accessible, it might allow greater access to medical care than private sector systems, thus it explains the low infant mortality rate. KEEP
B - This is not under discussion. OUT.
C - This is what the argument is concluding. There is a logical flow behind this conclusion.
D - Irrelevant. OUT.
E - It does assume socialised medicine's desirability but this is NOT a flow. OUT.

Between A & C
Author says Socialised medicine is widely available as compared to private ones. And then, concludes they are superior.
So they are not superior, but more widely available which helps explain the low mortality rates.
The flaw is the author is contradicting his own premise.

Between A & C, A wins and is the right answer IMO.
