Medical Student: Last week, a certain patient at this hospital weighed 150 lbs. Since the same patient weighs 160 lbs. today, and he appears to be much healthier than he was last week, he would be well advised to gain another ten pounds during the coming
week.

Which of the following, if true, undermines the argument above?

(A) The same scale was used to measure the patient’s weight in both instances.
(B) The patient was notified by his physician of this week’s weight gain.
(C) During the past week, the patient has eaten less food than he would normally eat.
(D) When the patient was weighed last week, an illness had caused the patient’s weight to drop ten pounds below its normal level.
(E) Quick weight loss can be hazardous to one’s health.

(A) The same scale was used to measure the patient’s weight in both instances.
This choice supports the argument

(B) The patient was notified by his physician of this week’s weight gain.
This choice supports the argument

(C) During the past week, the patient has eaten less food than he would normally eat.
Eat less food, but gain weight and be healthier. This means he was well advised. Eliminated.

(D) When the patient was weighed last week, an illness had caused the patient’s weight to drop ten pounds below its normal level.
Correct. This choice indicates that an illness had made him loss 10 pounds in weights. But how could he weigh 160 today? He may have eaten much more food. This case has undermined the argument that he is well advised.

(E) Quick weight loss can be hazardous to one’s health.
This choice is irrelevant to the argument
