### HideShow timer Statistics

Many adults, no matter what their age, respond to adversity by seeking advice only from their parents. Consciously or not, they regress to a psychological state of childhood dependence in which the parent is seen as the only source of wisdom and comfort. Adults who do not regress to this childhood mode turn to advice in adversity only to other loved ones - a spouse or a best friend - whom they perceive and relate to as peers.

If all of the above statements are true, which of the following must also be true?

(A) One's parents offer more wisdom in adversity than those whom one perceives as peers.
(E) Adults who regress to a state of childhood dependence lose touch with their peers.

now again remaining = 10 it is said that they take advice from LOVED ones..

clearly no one seeks advice from ....strangers .

hence C

That is correct. Usually though I am very careful of selecting answers which go to the extreme levels of "all", "none", etc; However in this case the question is fairly clear in indicating that there are only two types of adults. Note that for the first group it says "Many adults" but then for the second group it says "Adults who do not regress to this..." meaning that only these two groups represent Adults completely.

Can you please tell what is the source of this question?
Is it possible that a right answer in the official GMAT test contains some extreme words (No one, always, etc.)?

yup, C is correct, even though there is no word "stranger" in the passage but it must be true for those who regress to the childhood

i can see C as the answer because... they either seek parents or peers.
