E i think...Can someone explain why it isn't E...

(E) A naturally occurring chemical cannot be patented unless its effectiveness as a drug has been rigorously established.
E is totally supporting the words from the Comprehension..Let me quote "however, it must be put through the same rigorous testing program as any synthetic compound, culminating in a published report detailing the chemical’s structure and observed effects."

I think E is wrong simply because Effectiveness is not mentioned in the text. IMO effectiveness is beyond effects.

Before a naturally occurring chemical compound can be used as a drug, however, it must be put through the same rigorous testing program as any synthetic compound, culminating in a published report detailing the chemical’s structure and observed effects.
If the statements above are true, which of the following must also be true on the basis of them?
(A) Any naturally occurring chemical can be reproduced synthetically once its structure is known.
(B) Synthetically produced chemical compounds cannot be patented unless their chemical structures are made public.
(C) If proven no less effective, naturally occurring chemicals are to be preferred to synthetic compounds for use in drugs.
(D) Once a naturally occurring compound has been approved for use as a drug, it can no longer be newly patented.
(E) A naturally occurring chemical cannot be patented unless its effectiveness as a drug has been rigorously established.


Just need to make an ordered sequence

Newly patented - Published - Drug

(D) is the only answer choice that respects the stated sequence

Cheers
J :)
Kudos if it helps!

The answer is definitively D.

Can one of the moderators fix this post? You're unable to select an answer. It just says that an answer was not provided after you click on it.

Please fix!

once naturally occurring chemical is used as drug then its structure must have been published. so can't be patented.

D for me.
