Psychiatric research has shown that receiving high-quality outpatient care, rather than being confined to an institution, produces the best quality of life for people who are mentally ill. Responding to this research, Congress in 1963 passed a law that released 95% of the mentally ill patients who had been confined to institutions. In 1983, however, researchers discovered that, on average, mentally ill people in America were faring worse than ever.

Which if the following, if true, best resolves the paradox in the above passage?

A) More people were diagnosed with psychiatric disorders in 1983 than in 1963.
B) In 1983 men who had been released from mental institutions fared worse that did their female counterparts.
C) A number of psychiatric medications were discovered between 1963 and 1983, including some early antidepressants.
D) Congress never supplied the funding that would have been necessary to provide high-quality outpatient care to the newly-released patients.
E) Most of the released patients who were doing badly in 1983 suffered from one of three mental illnesses.

I think the answer should be A.

But Why OA is D.
I think it's out of scope.
kindly explain..

Even I went for A.
It is possible that more people are diagnosed with psychiatric disorders which were not discovered by 1963 when research took place and this could have led to faring of mentally ill people.
In D, if congress never supplied fund for high quality outpatient care, faring of mentally ill people should have continued from 1963 onward ..

High-quality outpatient treatment is better for well-being of the mentally ill patients than treatment under confined conditions in institutions is. Thus majority of the ill patients were released (assuming that these patients would get treated in high-quality outpatient facilities) so that the well-being of these patients improves. However the intended results were not obtained. Option D explains the reason: the patients did not receive treatment from high-quality outpatient facilities as expected because there was no fund to develop these facilities. Therefore the general well-being of these patients deteriorated as they did not receive either of the treatments.

Also, option A talks about number of people having disorder, but conclusion says - "mentally ill people in America were faring worse than ever". Means conclusion is talking about the way ill people were being treated and their condition, not the number.

Option D talks about reason - why people were not treated properly - because there was no fund for treatment.
