A,

for those who put C as an answer, who can expose his/her hip to 200 degrees and still come out good!

I was able to answer the question correctly.

Just to clarify myself on your point regarding answer choice (C). While what you say is so true in real world, can such assumptions be made on solving GMAT CR questions when nothing for or against the assumption is provided in the premise of the CR?

Thank you.

Official Veritas Explanation

Solution: A

Explanation: The surgeon explains that it is almost impossible for the artificial hip to wear away so soon WITH NORMAL USE. However, if the patient was inappropriately engaged in vigorous activities, particles of her hip may very well be wearing off.

(B) The question is what is causing the discomfort, not how to treat it.

(C) There is no reason to think that the patient could have been exposed to such an extreme temperature.

(D) This lends strength to the idea that artificial hips CAN wear away, but does not strengthen the proposition that this is what happened to her.

(E) The surgeon’s lack of experience does not necessarily weaken his position or strengthen the patient’s.
