Personnel officer: The exorbitant cost of our health-insurance benefits reflects the high dollar amount of medical expenses incurred by our employees. Employees who are out of shape, as a group, have higher doctor bills and longer hospital stays than do their colleagues who are fit. Therefore, since we must reduce our health-insurance costs, we should offer a rigorous fitness program of jogging and weight lifting to all employees, and require employees who are out of shape to participate.

Which of the following, if true, provides the most support for the personnel officer's proposal?

(A) The medical expenses incurred by fit people who participate in a program of jogging and weight lifting are less than those incurred by fit people who do not participate in such a program.

(B) More otherwise fit people are injured by participating in rigorous jogging and weight-lifting programs than are injured by participating in moderate jogging and weight-lifting programs.

(C) The likelihood of incurring medical expenses is slightly greater for people who participate in fitness programs offered by their employers than it is for people who participate in programs offered commercially.

(D) Moderate fitness programs increase the average person's fitness to the same extent that rigorous fitness programs do.

(E) More health problems and injuries are the result of mandatory participation in a fitness program than are the result of voluntary participation.

Astonished: A previous version of this question (find the assumption) tells that the correct answer should be different. I always thought that assumption/weaken/strengh followed a similar reasoning/approach. Check this out:

I think your question is wrong. It makes no sense.

This is the right question with right answer choices;

Hi Paris, there is no right or wrong question. GMATPrep has two versions for the same steem - one asks to strengh and the other asks to find the assumption. My concern was that I always faced find the assumption questions with the same approach as in weaken or strength questions - as per CR Powerscore Bible. But this does not seem to always be the case. Something test takers should be aware, as well.
