Like a genetic profile, a functional magnetic-resonance image (fMRI) of the brain can contain information that a patient wishes to keep private. An fMRI of a brain also contains enough information about a patient’s skull to create a recognizable image of that patient’s face. A genetic profile can be linked to a patient only by referring to labels or records.

The statements above, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?

(A) It is not important that medical providers apply labels to fMRIs of patients’ brains.
(B) An fMRI has the potential to compromise patient privacy in circumstances in which a genetic profile would not.
(C) In most cases patients cannot be reasonably sure that the information in a genetic profile will be kept private.
(D) Most of the information contained in an fMRI of a person’s brain is also contained in that person’s genetic profile.
(E) Patients are more concerned about threats to privacy posed by fMRIs than they are about those posed by genetic profiles.

A) It is not important that medical providers apply labels to fMRIs of patients’ brains.
Not true Incorrect
(B) An fMRI has the potential to compromise patient privacy in circumstances in which a genetic profile would not
Can be true lets save this option
(C) In most cases patients cannot be reasonably sure that the information in a genetic profile will be kept private.
out of context incorrect
(D) Most of the information contained in an fMRI of a person’s brain is also contained in that person’s genetic profile.
usage of word most regects this choice incorrect
(E) Patients are more concerned about threats to privacy posed by fMRIs than they are about those posed by genetic profiles
There is chance of privacy leak , but in argument no mention of threat is there . So incorrect

Therefore answer must be B
