Mr. Primm: If hospitals were private enterprises, dependent on profits for their survival, there would be no teaching hospitals, because of the intrinsically high cost of running such hospitals.
Ms. Nakai: I disagree. The medical challenges provided by teaching hospitals attract the very best physicians. This, in turn, enables those hospitals to concentrate on nonroutine cases.
Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen Ms. Nakaiâ€™s attempt to refute Mr. Primmâ€™s claim?
(A) Doctors at teaching hospitals command high salaries.
(B) Sophisticated, nonroutine medical care commands a high price.
(C) Existing teaching hospitals derive some revenue from public subsidies.
(D) The patient mortality rate at teaching hospitals is high.
(E) The modern trend among physicians is to become highly specialized.

B

Primms argument - "if teaching hospitals were private, the won't be able to earn any profit"

Nakai says, teaching hosptls. concentrate on 'non-routine' cases. If it can be shown that such cases bring capital, Primm's argument can be refuted.

B is the best choice. Ms Nakai says the teaching hospitals would be able to concentrete on nonroutine cases because they attract the best physicians. This is her counter-claim that teaching hospitals are not cost-effective. B supports Ms Nakai's statement by saying that these nonroutine cases generates a lot of revenue for the teaching hospitals, so the statment that the teaching hospitals are not cost-effective is not strong.

It must be B because the highly specialized medical services provided at University hospitals charge high fees. This in turn attracts the best and brightest doctor`s who command the highest salaries.
