### HideShow timer Statistics

Many pregnant women suffer from vitamin deficiency, but this is frequently not due to vitamin deficiency in their diets; most often it is because they have higher requirements for vitamins than do the rest of the population.

The best criticism of the reasoning in the statement above is that it

(A) fails to specify the percentage of pregnant women who suffer from vitamin deficiency

(B) gives insufficient information about why pregnant women have higher vitamin requirements than do other groups

(C) fails to employ the same reference group for both uses of the term "vitamin deficiency"

(D) provides insufficient information about the incidence of vitamin deficiency in other groups with high vitamin requirements

(E) uses "higher requirements" in an ambiguous manner

Reasoning is based on the assumption that Demand for vitamins of preg woman > Supply that preg women get.
But we do not know how much more is the demand.
Higher requirements might be little 2% or vary considerably.
So, I would vote for E.

C.

Vitamin deficiency in pregnant women and vitamin deficiency in food is the key here, I guess.

I think its B... its imp to analyze what is the reason behind this deficiency.. and why do they need more vitamins compared to the rest of the population..what gives rise to this deficiency..and what is this deficiency all about??

Hence, B. Im not very sure though.

Tough one! C for me
Having higher requirements but not meeting these requirements means
that if some pregnant women suffer from vitamin deficiency it does come from their diet...

Yeah doggita,bhai and oxon you are correct: answer is "C"

Vitamin Deficiency for pregnant women = their Higher need for vitamin
Vitamin Deficiency for food = food doesnot have enough vitamin ingredients

good work all guys
