Sleep deprivation is a known cause of workplace error, and many physicians frequently go without sleep for periods of 24 hours or more. However, few of these physicians have, in the course of a routine examination by a peer, been diagnosed with sleep deprivation.So there is little cause for concern that habitual sleep deprivation will cause widespread physician error.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most helpful in evaluating the argument?

(A)Do physicians who have been diagnosed with sleep disorders also show signs of other ills not related to sleep deprivation?
(B)Is the ability to recognize the symptoms of sleep deprivation in others significantly impaired by habitual sleep deprivation?
(C)Do factors other than habitual sleep deprivation ever lead to errors in the workplace on the part of physicians?
(D)Of people who have recently been treated by physicians, what percentage believe that many physicians have occasionally suffered from sleep deprivation?
(E)Is the incidence of sleep deprivation higher among physicians than it is among other health care workers?

The answer to which of the following questions would be most helpful in evaluating the argument?


Premise 1: Sleep deprivation => workplace error
Premise 2: Many physicians have habitual sleep deprivation.
Fact: Few of physicians have been diagnosed with sleep deprivation
Conclusion: habitual sleep deprivation won't cause widespread physician error.

(A)Do physicians who have been diagnosed with sleep disorders also show signs of other ills not related to sleep deprivation?
Other ills are irrelevant to the argument

(B)Is the ability to recognize the symptoms of sleep deprivation in others significantly impaired by habitual sleep deprivation?
Correct. This choice focuses on evaluating the given fact. If the answer is Yes, then the result of those diagnosing isn't reliable to come to the conclusion. If the answer is No, then the result is reliable and the argument is confirmed.

(C)Do factors other than habitual sleep deprivation ever lead to errors in the workplace on the part of physicians?
Other factors are irrlevant

(D)Of people who have recently been treated by physicians, what percentage believe that many physicians have occasionally suffered from sleep deprivation?
The beliefs of those patients are irrelevant

(E)Is the incidence of sleep deprivation higher among physicians than it is among other health care workers?
The incidence of sleep deprivation among other people is irrelevant.

The conclusion is dependent on the quality of examination on physicians conducted by the peers.
But what if the peers themselves are sleep deprived ? In such a scenario the findings by the peers cannot be held conclusive.
Option B talks about this issue.
