Patient: Doctor, I read an article that claimed that the first few hours after birth are very important to establishing a mother-infant bond, which is the first step in building a healthy relationship. Can you assure me that my relationship with my baby has not been permanently harmed by our separation for several days after his birth?
Physician: Your relationship with your child has not been harmed by the separation. Mother-infant bonding is not like an instant glue that cements your relationship forever. Having your infant with you during the period immediately after birth does give your relationship a head start, but many factors are involved in building a strong and lasting relationship between a mother and her child.

Q. The doctor does which one of the following in her reply to her patient?

A. She rejects an analogy in an attempt to reduce the patients concern.

B. She cites evidence to show that the patients worry is unfounded.

C. She misinterprets the patients explanation of her concern.

D. She establishes that the article that the patient read was in error.

E. She names other factors that are more important in creating a mother-infant bond

Out of given options, A sounds best. E can't be answer since she didn't name the other factors, but just mentioned "many factors".

A. She rejects an analogy in an attempt to reduce the patients concern.

What is the analogy to Mother-infant bonding?? There is no analogy. Stem does not glue x with y.

B. She cites evidence to show that the patients worry is unfounded.

No evidence

C. She misinterprets the patients explanation of her concern.

She clearly gets it right

D. She establishes that the article that the patient read was in error

The word error at the end goes a little bit far

E. She names other factors that are more important in creating a mother-infant bond

Does not name any factors

I guess A is the best of the lot. What is the OA?
