People with a certain eye disorder are virtually unable to see in moderately bright light, which seems to them unbearably intense, since the cells of their retinas are overwhelmed by moderately bright light. These people do, however, show normal sensitivity to most components of dim light. Their retinal cells are also not excessively sensitive to red components of moderately bright light.

The information above best supports which of the following hypotheses about people with the disorder described, if they have no other serious visual problems?

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print.
B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles.
C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder.
D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light.
E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder.

i would choose D. People w/ such eye disorder are sensitive to bright lights, except the red components of light.... (that's how i understand it, could be wrong :? ).

Yeah its "D"

Eye Disorder --> able to see only DIM LIGHT and RED COMPONENT of moderate dim light
so filter out other components but red of the moderate dim light and enjoy moderate light.

D

--
A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print. - Moderately dim light not much of an issue
B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles - in dim light, they have normal sensitivity to most components and nothing has been said about white

C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder. - no comparison mentioned

D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light. - CORRECT

E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder - can't say. They still have some sensitivity towards red.

Essentially ppl w/ this disorder have trouble seeing in moderate bright light except for red. No real problems w/ dim light.

A: nothing about reading, and this is not suggested.
B: nothing to suggest they see red more clearly, they just dont have problems seeing it in moderately bright light.
C: This isnt what the passage says, this goes too far.
E: maybe maybe not, cannot deduce this.

D: sure, if these glasses really do this then it would help these people see.

People with eye disorder unable to see in moderately bright light and at the same token, they can properly in dim light but not sensitive to red light.

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print. [This is not comparison between people with disorder and people without disorder. – Eliminate it]

B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles.[This opposes the information given in the premise – eliminate it]

C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder. [This is not comparison between people with disorder and people without disorder. – Eliminate it]

D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light.[when eye glasses filters out other components of bright light, it implies creating an dim environment. And if eye glass transparent to red light then this is eliminating the disorder – Hold it]

E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder [This is not comparison between people with disorder and people without disorder. – Eliminate it]

Answer: D

MBT correct answer can be inferred from stimulus.
MBT wrong answer 1) could/likely to be true, 2) exaggerated 3) any new information 4) shell game 5) reverse logic/answer.

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print. Wrong. It's clearly reverse logic or opposite reasoning of the stimulus.

B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles. Wrong. It's an exaggeration. More so, it's not even in the stimulus. These people show normal sensitivity to dim light; overcompensating red light in areas of dim lighting cannot be inferred too.

C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder. Wrong. The stimulus states that these people show normal sensitivity to most components of dim light.

D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light. This is tricky because this method is not explicit in the stimulus. It can only be inferred.

E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder. Wrong. I originally passed it because the statement seems funny, or an exaggeration. After a second look, it's clearly shell game. This statement is inherently opposite of the stimulus, but it's tricky because a lot of the same wording is present.

This is an inference type of question. The answer choice must be true based on the information given in the argument.

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print.
people with disorder do not have any problems with dim light. This is irrelevant.

B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles.
This cannot be inferred from the argument. The argument does not state that people with disorder see better in dim light.

C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder.
No, this cannot be inferred. The argument does not compare people without disorder with people with disorder. Moreover, the argument does not state that people with disorder see more acutely in dim light.

D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light.
Aha! The argument tells that in red components of moderately bright light do not make the retina cells more sensitive. Looks good.

E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder
No, the argument does not compare people with/without disorder.

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print. -- in dim light they show normal sensitivity.
B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles. -- in dim light they show normal sensitivity.
C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder. -- no comparison between people with no disorder vs people with disorder
D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light. - CORRECT - red color in bright light
E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder -- no comparison between people with no disorder vs people with disorder

These people do, however, show normal sensitivity to most components of dim light. Their retinal cells are also not excessively sensitive to red components of moderately bright light.
The information above best supports which of the following hypotheses about people with the disorder described, if they have no other serious visual problems?

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print.
The size of the print is not the problem discussed in teh argument as the disorder is not related to the focus of the lens bu thte sensitivity of the ratina, so out of scope.

B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles.
The ratina of people with this discussed disorder is insensitive to the red light or red frequency of the visible light,so even if there is no light but red they will be able to see less.

C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder.
The visibilty of peopel with disorder to the visibility of regualr people is not compared but the people with disorder will still see less than the people without disorder.

D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light.
Correct answer since the people with the disorder cannot bear the intensity of bright light and they are less sensitve to red light they can see better with glaases that filter all but red color .Correct answer.

E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder
This is also a good choice, but people with disorder cannot bear the bright light while people without disorder can this answer choice is susceptible to be negated,
also answer D is better answer then E

These people do, however, show normal sensitivity to most components of dim light. Their retinal cells are also not excessively sensitive to red components of moderately bright light.
The information above best supports which of the following hypotheses about people with the disorder described, if they have no other serious visual problems?

Extraction: 1. ppl with disorder- unable to see MODERATELY BRIGHT
2.show normal sensitivity to MOST components of DIM light.
3.not excessively sensitive to red components of moderately bright light.

A. In all moderately dim light in which people without the disorder can read large print, people with the disorder cannot read such print. -- GIVEN- most (>50% to 100%) dim light is okay-- so this may or may not be true.

B. In an otherwise darkened concert hall, these people will see a dimly illuminated red exit sign more clearly than small dim white lights that mark the aisles.-- GIVEN- ppl can see moderately bright red light and can see most dim lights . Now both the RED and WHITE are dim here -- so they both can be seen --but a comparison(which can be seen clearly)cannot be deduced.
C. These people typically see more acutely at night and in dim light than do most people who do not have the disorder.--NO INFO ABOUT PPL WITHOUT DISORDER AND SO COMPARISON, IS UNDEDUCTIBLE.

D. Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light.-- GIVEN- MODERATELY BRIGHT RED LIGHT OKAY. other components not okay. if only red allowed to be passed and other to be blocked then this will surely help them- CORRECT

E. These people perceive colors other than red in the same way as do most people who do not have the disorder-- comparison is given - colors other than red affect both the group in same way. PASSAGE SPECIFICALLY TALKS ABOUT BRIGHT AND DIM LIGHTS. so the answer choice has to state clearly which type of light we are talking about.

Eyeglasses that are transparent to red components of light but filter out other components of light help these people see in moderately bright light -

I construed this as such eyeglasses only helps them to see in bright light and so ruled this option. :(
