One of the most reliable methods of dealing with psychiatric problems in adults is to look into their childhood events. More often than not, some events during the formative years leave an indelible mark on a person’s thoughts and habits. By looking into these events, psychiatrists can gain valuable insights into their patient’s fears and insecurities; this understanding can be of key importance in dealing with problems related to the mind.

Which one of the following may be inferred from the information in the passage?

A. Adults have psychiatric problems that are similar to those of children.
B. Solutions to mental illnesses are always associated with the causes of such illnesses.
C. Similarities between a child’s mind and an adult’s mind are greater than previously believed.
D. Reliable methods of dealing with psychiatric problems in adults need the knowledge of the causes of illnesses.
E. Childhood experiences can shape the way an adult’s mind works.

+1 for E

A. Adults have psychiatric problems that are similar to those of children.
- Incorrect. Out of scope. It is no where said that children have psychiatric problems
B. Solutions to mental illnesses are always associated with the causes of such illnesses.
-Incorrect. Illness is not mentioned in the passage
C. Similarities between a child’s mind and an adult’s mind are greater than previously believed.
- Incorrect.They are not similar but adult person's thought and action are dependent
D. Reliable methods of dealing with psychiatric problems in adults need the knowledge of the causes of illnesses.
- Incorrect. Illness is out of scope
E. Childhood experiences can shape the way an adult’s mind works.
- Correct. This can be clearly inferred from "More often than not, some events during the formative years leave an indelible mark on a person’s thoughts and habits"

The basic approach to solve the inference questions is
1. Read the question
2. Work the argument- Identify the facts provided in the argument
3. Do effective process of elimination
A. Eliminate answers which have extreme language. Author is the boss of the argument, and any claim which is stronger than the claim made by the author can’t function as the right answer. The student should be always suspicious about answer choices which have words like all, always, none, only, must, never etc.
B. Eliminate answer choices which are beyond the scope of the argument.
Let’s try to attempt this question
It is an inference question
Let’s see the facts provided – Psychiatric problems in adults can be dealt with observing their childhood events. Some events during childhood leave a strong impression. The doctors can get a lot of clarity about patients’ insecurities and fears which will help in dealing with psychiatric disorders.
Now let us do process of elimination
A. This answer choice is out of scope
B. This answer is extreme in nature
C. The discussion does not draw similarities.
D. This answer choice is again out of scope.
E. This is supported from the facts provided. It serves as the right answer.
Keep practicing. Consistency is the key.
