### HideShow timer Statistics

Patient: Doctor, I read an article that claimed that the first few hours after birth are very important to establishing a mother-infant bond, which is the first step in building a healthy relationship. Can you assure me that my relationship with my baby has not been permanently harmed by our separation for several days after his birth?

Physician: Your relationship with your child has not been harmed by the separation. Mother-infant bonding is not like an тАЬinstant glueтАЭ that cements your relationship forever. Having your infant with you during the period immediately after birth does give your relationship a head start, but many factors are involved in building a strong and lasting relationship between a mother and her child.

5. If everything the doctor says is correct, which one of the following must be true?

(A) The best relationships between mothers and their children are caused by immediate mother-infant bonding.

(B) There is a high degree of correlation between the best relationships between mothers and their children and those that began with immediate mother-infant bonding.

(C) A strong and lasting relationship is necessary for mother-infant bonding.

(D) Where immediate mother-infant bonding takes place, a strong and lasting relationship between a mother and her child will be assured.

(E) Immediate mother-infant bonding is not necessary for a strong and lasting relationship between a mother and her child.

6. The doctor does which one of the following in her reply to her patient?

(A) She rejects an analogy in an attempt to reduce the patientтАЩs concern.

(B) She cites evidence to show that the patientтАЩs worry is unfounded.

(C) She misinterprets the patientтАЩs explanation of her concern.

(D) She establishes that the article that the patient read was in error.

(E) She names other factors that are more important in creating a mother-infant bond.

Yes, E is the official answer.

But, why C is not correct.

The doctor only said there many factors involved in making a strong relation ship between mother and infant. He did not say this is required for mother-infact bonding.
You cannot say for sure that without strong and lasting relationship mother-infant bonding will not occur. It might still occur.

Confidence is the key word. I dont have it yet. I am yet to finish Math Q-bank from Kaplan. This I will use for speed. I think I should make the call the do math while the time runs.

IMO, C puts the cart before the horse. Since bonding occurs long before we will ever know if there will be a long lasting relationship, the latter cannot cause the former.

Thanks Akamai & Anand!

The best relationships between mothers and their children are caused by immediate mother-infant bonding.

Does the above statement means
"Immediate mother-infant bonding is sufficient for best relationship"
