Linda: In the 1800s, it was found that one in every six women who gave birth in hospitals died of a fever they had contracted after delivering the child and that the mortality was not as high if they gave birth at home with the help of a mid wife. It was found that the doctors had a poorer sense of hygiene and that their dirty hands and instruments were leading to pathogens entering a woman's bloodstream. Thankfully, hygienic conditions today are much better and women are safer.

Fiona: But doctors today are so overworked that a number of doctors, while aware of the need for better hygiene, barely find the time to wash their hands. The likelihood of infections caused by doctors is probably not any better.

Which of the following can be used by Fiona to further establish that Linda need not be correct in her reasoning?

A. A nationwide survey found that doctors, especially experienced ones, are more prone to the belief that they could not possibly be carrying pathogens.
B. It is reported that around 50,000 people die every year in our country from hospital acquired infections.
C. Compulsory hand cleansing is strictly adhered to by all doctors and nurses before every major surgical procedure.
D. During a study, doctors handling newborn babies self reported a hand cleansing rate of 90℅.
E. Nurses are not any better than doctors in adhering to strict cleansing schedules, especially when busy.

the answer would be D, the fact that doctors have revealed a 90% chance of cleaning their hands further goes to prove that doctors could be carrying pathogens that could cause infection.
