HideShow timer Statistics

Researchers have discovered that a quick study of the hands — more specifically, the lengths of the index and ring fingers — can reveal a lot about a person’s personality and risk of disease. Of course, your fingers don’t actually control these issues; it’s closer to the other way around.

Which of the following statements is best supported by the above information?

A.The larger the difference in the length of the index fingers and ring fingers, the clearer the understanding of the person’s personality that can be achieved through the study of hands.
B.The lengths of the ring and index fingers are expected to be different for people with different personalities.
C.It is difficult to ascertain through the study of hands the personality and disposition to disease of a person with almost no difference in the length of index and ring fingers.
D.Other fingers, except the ring and index fingers, do not provide much information about a person’s personality and risk of disease.
E.A person’s personality and risk of disease is generally controlled by the length of the index and ring fingers.

The question says that your fingers dont control the personality and disease. it must be other way round.

So will go with B.

Nice question. Will go with B.
Skywalker18, I believe option C has a typo of double usage of 'in the length'.
