MME. CHARPENTIER: Research has demonstrated that the United States, which has the most extensive health-care industry in the world, has only the 17th lowest infant mortality rate in the world. This forces me to conclude that medical technology causes babies to die. M. ADAMANTE: That is ludicrous. We know that medical care is not equally available to all. Infant mortality is more likely a function of low income than of medical technology.

M. Adamante attacks Mme. Charpentier’s reasoning in which of the following ways?

(A) By questioning the validity of her supporting data
(B) By offering an alternative explanation of the data
(C) By suggesting that her argument is circular
(D) By defining an intermediate cause
(E) By implying that her data leads to the opposite conclusion

Answer is B.
Coz MME. CHARPENTIER cited medical technology as a cause for infants deaths. where as the second person opposed his claim and presented an alternate function stating that Infant mortality is more likely a function of low income than mere medical technology.

Please Give me + 1 kudos if my post is valuable to you :)

Correct answer will definitely be (B) as M. Adamante presents alternative explanation for the low mortality rate of infants..
