Journalist: To reconcile the need for profits sufficient to support new drug research with the moral imperative to provide medicines to those who most need them but cannot afford them, some pharmaceutical companies feel justified in selling a drug in rich nations at one price and in poor nations at a much lower price. But this practice is unjustified. A nation with a low average income may still have a substantial middle class better able to pay for new drugs than are many of the poorer citizens of an overall wealthier nation.

Which one of the following principles, if valid, most helps to justify the journalist’s reasoning?

A.People who are ill deserve more consideration than do healthy people, regardless of their relative socioeconomic positions.
B.Wealthy institutions have an obligation to expend at least some of their resources to assist those incapable of assisting themselves.
C.Whether one deserves special consideration depends on one’s needs rather than on characteristics of the society to which one belongs.
D.The people in wealthy nations should not have better access to health care than do the people in poorer nations.
E.Unequal access to health care is more unfair than an unequal distribution of wealth.

In order to evaluate the argument, we need to find out whether the middle class of a nation with a low average income has need for drugs or not. C paraphrases this.

Answer: C

A.People who are ill deserve more consideration than do healthy people, regardless of their relative socioeconomic positions. -- socioeconomic positions is irrelevant to the argument
B.Wealthy institutions have an obligation to expend at least some of their resources to assist those incapable of assisting themselves.-- not necessarily true
C.Whether one deserves special consideration depends on one’s needs rather than on characteristics of the society to which one belongs.-- correct
D.The people in wealthy nations should not have better access to health care than do the people in poorer nations.-- doesn't help in explaining
E.Unequal access to health care is more unfair than an unequal distribution of wealth.-- Out of scope
