It seems that medical care is constantly improving and is far better today than it was a few years ago. New medicines are being developed, and at a lower cost. Technological advancements are being made and new treatments are devised. However, hospital care has not improved as much as expected. Most hospitals do not have a large enough ER that can handle a sudden influx of patients and the number of people who die in a hospital due to reasons other than what they got admitted for is staggeringly high.

All of the following underscore the author’s argument EXCEPT

A. Most hospitals require doctors to do so much paperwork that they spend insufficient time on direct patient care.
B. Most hospitals recirculate air and therefore, it is very easy for diseases such as anthrax to spread through the hospital.
C. In smaller cities, the ambulance service is on a voluntary basis and the response time for calls is much lower than the national average, leading to a higher loss of life.
D. A number of doctors in private hospitals are not held accountable by the administration for the loss of patients.
E. Doctors in most private hospitals have performance appraisals based on how much money they have brought in for the hospital rather than based on how effectively they treated patients.

C for me, because it says that the ambulance service at the national level is compared to the service in small cities.

It seems that medical care is constantly improving and is far better today than it was a few years ago. New medicines are being developed, and at a lower cost. Technological advancements are being made and new treatments are devised. However, hospital care has not improved as much as expected. Most hospitals do not have a large enough ER that can handle a sudden influx of patients and the number of people who die in a hospital due to reasons other than what they got admitted for is staggeringly high.

Argument:
    + Medical care is improved
    + Hospital care not improve as expected because:
    1. Cannot handle sudden influx of people
    2. The number of people who die in hospital is not because what they got admited but because hospital care

    All of the following underscore the author’s argument EXCEPT

    A. Most hospitals require doctors to do so much paperwork that they spend insufficient time on direct patient care.
    - This strenthens reasoning 1: cannot handle Influx of people
    B. Most hospitals recirculate air and therefore, it is very easy for diseases such as anthrax to spread through the hospital.
    - This strenthen reasoning 2: die because reason other than what they got admitted
    C. In smaller cities, the ambulance service is on a voluntary basis and the response time for calls is much lower than the national average, leading to a higher loss of life.
    - This strenthen the idea hospital care is not improved.
    D. A number of doctors in private hospitals are not held accountable by the administration for the loss of patients.
    - Explaination for the loss of patients look irrelavant. Hold this choice
    E. Doctors in most private hospitals have performance appraisals based on how much money they have brought in for the hospital rather than based on how effectively they treated patients.
    - This supports reasoning 2: patients die maybe because doctor performance is judged by the amount of mony they bring in, not how efective they are.
