Nate: Recently a craze has developed for home juicers, $300 machines that separate the pulp of the fruits and vegetables from the juice they contain. Outrageous claims are being made about the benefits of these devices: Drinking the juice they produce is said to help one lose weight or acquire a clear complexion, to aid in digestion, and even to prevent cancer. But there is no indication that juice separated from the pulp of the fruit or vegetable has any properties that it does not have when unseparated. Save your money, if you want carrot juice, eat a carrot.

Which of the following, if true, most calls into question Nate’s argument?

(A) Most people find it much easier to consume a given quantity of nutrients in liquid form than to eat solid foods containing the same quantity of the same nutrients.

(B) Drinking juice from home juicers is less healthy than is eating fruits and vegetables because such juice does not contain the fiber that is eaten if one consumes the entire fruit or vegetable.

(C) To most people who would be tempted to buy a home juicer, $300 would not be a major expense.

(D) Nate was a member of a panel that extensively evaluated early prototypes of home juicers

(E) Vitamin pills that supposedly contain nutrients available elsewhere only in fruits and vegetables often contain a form of those compounds that cannot be as easily metabolized as the varieties found in fruit and vegetables.

Hi, Is OA correct? I could not find any choice that can weeken the argument. A correct choice should describe a health benefit of pulp vs non pulp.

Nate's argument is as follows:

Premise: Juice separated from the pulp of the fruit or vegetable does not have any additional properties that it does not have when unseparated.
Conclusion: Money can be saved by eating the fruit rather than using the juicer to separate the juice from pulp.

In my opinion, option A does not seem to be relevant to this argument. Option A attacks a statement such as, the juicer is not helpful in providing more nutrient in any way. But Nate does not claim so.

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION


It is trickier because the conclusion is not as easy to find; there is no transition language to point it out. You must see that both “Save your money” and “If you want carrot juice, eat a carrot” are calls for action. The author’s conclusion is essentially “the juicer adds no value.” Since this is a Weaken question, you need to find something that shows how the juicer adds a value (in other words, a reason to buy the juicer). If people are much more likely to get the nutrients in juiced form, then the juicer does add value (convenience, in this case), and answer choice A thus weakens the author’s conclusion.

the question needs to be reorganized. Otherwise, the question will never appear in the real Gmat.
"to save money" does not refer to saving, but supports the non-benefits of the machines.
