Public health will improve more quickly in the wake of new medical discoveries if medical researchers abandon their practice of waiting until their findings are published in peer-reviewed journals before informing the press of important research results. This is because the public release of new medical information allows people to use that information in order to improve their health, but the peer-review process is unavoidably very slow.

Which one of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) Many medical researchers do not agree to serve as reviewers when their own research is in a critical phase.

(B) Reviewers for many medical journals are not themselves medical researchers.

(C) People would use new medical information even if it were not first published in peer-reviewed journals.

(D) The peer-review process could be speeded up enough to produce a significant improvement in public health.

(E) New medical information that is first published in peer-reviewed journals does not usually receive public attention.

A D E are clearly out of scope
B might be one of the reason why the process is slow but there is a possibility of other reasons as well

C - Best choice also using technique of negation
If people do not use medical information unless it is published in peer review journals , our argument falls apart

Why is D wrong? is it because it is repetitive in nature or is the actual explanation different??

D is wrong because it suggests that the peer review process could be sped up if it is skipped. The author must assume that even though the peer review process is skipped before press release people will still listen to the press release.

(C) People would use new medical information even if it were not first published in peer-reviewed journals. -Seems legit. Lets keep it.

(D) The peer-review process could be speeded up enough to produce a significant improvement in public health. -We are not worried about the speeding up of the process

(E) New medical information that is first published in peer-reviewed journals does not usually receive public attention. -We are not worried about new information's reception

C
Conclusion falls apart hen we negate it.

All the other options don't affect the conclusion when negated.

Public health will improve more quickly in the wake of new medical discoveries if medical researchers abandon their practice of waiting until their findings are published in peer-reviewed journals before informing the press of important research results. This is because the public release of new medical information allows people to use that information in order to improve their health, but the peer-review process is unavoidably very slow.

Type - Assumption
Boil it down - Public health will improve more quickly if medical researchers abandon peer-review process .
Pre-thinking - People don't consider peer -review process to be of any use . But what if people believe that this process is a necessary validation of the research claims .

(A) Many medical researchers do not agree to serve as reviewers when their own research is in a critical phase. - Irrelevant

(B) Reviewers for many medical journals are not themselves medical researchers. - Irrelevant - if it at all this provides a reason for the peer-review process being slow

(C) People would use new medical information even if it were not first published in peer-reviewed journals. - Correct - people won't use new information unless it were peer-reviewed

(D) The peer-review process could be speeded up enough to produce a significant improvement in public health. - Irrelevant - the argument is not concerned about speeding up peer-review process

(E) New medical information that is first published in peer-reviewed journals does not usually receive public attention.- Irrelevant - it might take time but people still use this as a benchmark

Answer C

Like A,B,and E, D is out of scope. D talks about speeding up the processes.
C is the assumption b/c even if the practices are abandoned by medical practitioners, people still learn about the processes.
