Many studies have shown that users of anabolic steroids exhibit habitual aggression and commit violent crime at rates significantly higher than those seen in the general public; the studies have claimed the existence of a “steroid rage,” or “’roid rage,” caused by the anabolic steroids themselves. This claim is mistaken, though, since individuals who elect to use anabolic steroids tend to be innately more aggressive than the general public.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument above?


a. Anabolic steroids produce significant increases in the levels of the hormones that are principally associated with aggressive behavior.

b. Users of anabolic steroids must regularly “cycle off” the steroids; during these off-cycle times, their levels of aggression tend to decrease significantly.

c. Individuals who choose to use anabolic steroids tend to have unusually high ambition and sex drives.

d. Among people with identical histories of aggression, users of anabolic steroids do not exhibit significantly greater aggression than do non-users.

e. Among individuals convicted of violent offenses while on anabolic steroids, most are not convicted again, even if they continue to use anabolic steroids.

D is my answer. Its suggests those naturally aggressive remain aggressive whether they use A steriods. That means Steroids are not a cause.

Suggestion, please post these CR q in the respective forum. Reason being, those people who are specific will not check the RC form for CR's. Posting it there will help you(will get more inputs and perspectives) and them. :-)

mailnavin1. You nailed it down. The OA is D. Kudos for you.

My apologies for posting the CR qtn in RC forum. I, infact, have mistakenly posted the qtn here. Probably a wrong mouse-click.

Thanks for the kudos. To post the q in the right forum was a suggestion so that you will have many more approaches, if available

The first sentence is stating that "steroid rage" or "roid rage" in anabolic steroids causes aggression. The second sentence argues that people who choose to take steroids are by default more aggressive .... (so stating something like .. steroid are not responsible for the agression .. )

hope that helps!

Well, If someone taking steroids they must follow the proper way and appropriate guides to minimize the side effects. Steroids is not a long term medication. You must visit a professional when taking these.

Option C looks to strengthen
A.B.E can be ruled out.D actually weakens the claim
