If the old requirement were still in use, the newly discovered drugs would still be withheld for minimum 3 years. Therefore, Answer (A) points out the flawed conclusion that the argument made: the new requirement, but not the old requirement, was responsible for the fewer new approved drugs this year.

Journalist: The FDA's new requirements for drug approval, which took effect for drugs submitted for approval this year, have already had a marked effect on the public health. The number of new drugs introduced into the market this year has decreased by sixty percent from last year. Clearly, important and necessary treatments, including a newly discovered cancer treatment, are being withheld from the sick this year.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the journalist's argument?

A. The time required for a drug to gain FDA approval under the old FDA standards was a minimum of three years...nt sure
B. The majority of drugs introduced last year were intended for use in the treatment of non-fatal illnesses.............OFS
C. Many legislators cite the expense of the FDA approval process as the most serious barrier to affordable health care in this country............we are not concerned about the expense of FDA process
D. Many researchers tout the newly discovered cancer treatment as a possible cure for cancer............new treatment need not use new drugs introduced after passing through FDA requirement. OFS
E. Most drugs developed in the United States are approved for sale in Europe years before they receive approval by the FDA...........OFS
