Researchers have concluded from a survey of people aged 65 that emotional well-being in adulthood is closely related to intimacy with siblings earlier in life. Those surveyed who had never had any siblings or who said that at college age they were emotionally distant from their siblings were emotionally less well adjusted at 65 than were those who had been close to at least one brother or sister.

If the researchers’ conclusion is accurate, it follows that


(A) some people who attended college as young adults are likely as a result to be emotionally better off at age 65

(B) the emotional well-being of people aged 65 depends on the emotional well-being of their siblings

(C) it is closeness to siblings rather than just having siblings that is more relevant to people’s emotional well-being at age 65

(D) people who are emotionally well off at college age are more likely to be emotionally well off at age 65 as well

(E) intimacy with siblings is more important to people at college age than it is at age 65

It’s a cause and effect relationship
Fact:
Not Close ------ less well adjusted ( less well being)
Conclusion
Well being----- Close

A: some people who attended college as young adults are likely as a result to be emotionally better off at age 65: (Nothing about closeness/ Siblings) Eliminate
B: the emotional well-being of people aged 65 depends on the emotional well-being of their siblings ( Nothing about closeness with siblings) Eliminate.
C: it is closeness to siblings rather than just having siblings that is more relevant to people’s emotional well-being at age 65
Closeness with siblings is important factor in emotional well being.. Good answer Hold.
D: people who are emotionally well off at college age are more likely to be emotionally well off at age 65 as well ( nothing about siblings or reason of well being related to siblings) Eliminate.
E: intimacy with siblings is more important to people at college age than it is at age 65
Comparing intimacy at different age group is out of scope.. Eliminate.

Best Answer C.

(C) it is closeness to siblings rather than just having siblings that is more relevant to people’s emotional well-being at age 65 > Correct

(D) people who are emotionally well off at college age are more likely to be emotionally well off at age 65 as well > Irrelevant

(A) some people who attended college as young adults are likely as a result to be emotionally better off at age 65 - irrelevant.

(B) the emotional well-being of people aged 65 depends on the emotional well-being of their siblings - irrelevant.

(C) it is closeness to siblings rather than just having siblings that is more relevant to people’s emotional well-being at age 65 - correct.

(D) people who are emotionally well off at college age are more likely to be emotionally well off at age 65 as well - we cannot really assume this from the given argument. Eliminate.

(E) intimacy with siblings is more important to people at college age than it is at age 65 - irrelevant.

Thus, C is the best.
