It is widely believed that eating chocolate can cause acne. Indeed, many people who are susceptible to acne report that, in their own experience, eating large amounts of chocolate is invariably followed by an outbreak of that skin condition. However, it is likely that common wisdom has mistaken an effect for a cause. Several recent scientific studies indicate that hormonal changes associated with stress can cause acne and there is good evidence that people who are fond of chocolate tend to eat more chocolate when they are under stress

Of the following, which one most accurately expresses the main point of the argument?

(A) People are mistaken who insist that whenever they eat large amounts of chocolate they invariably suffer from an outbreak of acne,

(B) The more chocolate a person eats, the more likely that person is to experience the hormonal changes associated with stress.

(C) Eating large amounts of chocolate is more Likely to cause stress than it is to cause outbreaks of acne.

(D) It is less likely that eating large amounts of chocolate causes acne than that both the chocolate eating and the acne are caused by stress.

(E) The more stress a person experiences, the more likely that person is to crave chocolate,

(A) People are mistaken who insist that whenever they eat large amounts of chocolate they invariably suffer from an outbreak of acne, [argument do say this this but it isnt the main point] wrong

(B) The more chocolate a person eats, the more likely that person is to experience the hormonal changes associated with stress. [Nope, argument say that stress causes eating of chocolate wrong]

(C) Eating large amounts of chocolate is more Likely to cause stress than it is to cause outbreaks of acne. [totally wrong stress causes both eating chocolate and acne] wrong

(D) It is less likely that eating large amounts of chocolate causes acne than that both the chocolate eating and the acne are caused by stress. [see the wordings, less likely---> it isnt extreme word, writer agree that stress cause eating chocolate and acne] right

(E) The more stress a person experiences, the more likely that person is to crave chocolate, [the argument isnt about relation of stress and craving of chocolate] wrong

D is the right option as it says that it is less likely that chocolate causes acne but it is the stress causing acne and eating of chocolate

Yes I think that a huge amount of chocolate really can cause acne. I know it from my experience. I had been visiting dermatologist for a long time, it cost me a fortune. But then one my good friend suggested to buy one of these machines https://bimedis.com/search/search-items ... -equipment so I could clean the face at home. The effect was amazing. After three procedures I saw the needed results:pores became clean and skin less oily.
