Official Explanation

2. According to the passage, it is dangerous to react drastically to recently posed health hazards for all of the following reasons EXCEPT:

Difficulty Level: 600

Explanation

Look for an answer choice that either contradicts something that the author says about reactions or simply isn‘t included in the passage. (C) fits the latter: the author never mentions the effect of drastic reactions on insurance premiums.

(A): Opposite. This is the point made in the last paragraph: it‘s more effective to worry about safety methods that have been proven to improve safety.

(B): Opposite. This can be inferred from various statements in the passage: the author believes that drastic reactions generally represent irrational thought that can itself be dangerous if it leads to the neglect of proven safety measures.

(D): Opposite. The author makes this point in Paragraph 4.

(E): "Emotions" are not within the scope of the passage
