(E) Anyone who does not take success for granted is able to keep a good perspective on the world.

1. the original: IF (able to keep a good perspective on the world), THEN (not take success for granted)

2. B is clearly a rephrase of this link so B should be the winner.

Information in passage on which conclusion is based:
A: anyone who has to struggle early in life
B: is able to keep a good perspective on the world.

IF A then B

From this we can derive that
Anderson had to struggle early in life -> so she was able to keep a good perspective on the world.

But the conculsion says that
C: she did not take success for granted

So the assumption is to join the missing link between B and C.

So B

I will go with B. B clearly fills the gap by relating
Someone “with a good perspective on the world” and
Someone who “did not take success for granted”

what's the OA?

Clearly B.

cause --> effect.

"struggle early in life" --> "keep good perspective on the world" .......<missing something>........... --> "did ont take success for granted".

The "missing something" is provided by option B.

Yeah B for me.

For a moment, I confused myself thinking that the conclusion is anyone who has to struggle early in life is able to keep a good perspective on the world.

As soon as I found out that the conclusion is MA did not take success for granted, I figured it is B
