Safety expert: Tuna is often treated with carbon monoxide so that it will not tum brown as it ages. Treating tuna with carbon monoxide does not make it harmful in any way. Nonetheless, there is a danger that such treatment will result in more people getting sick from eating tuna.

Which one of the following, if true, most helps to resolve the apparent discrepancy in the safety expert's statements?

(A) Workers in fish processing plants can be sickened by exposure to carbon monoxide if the appropriate safety procedures are not followed at those plants.
(B) Over the last several years, tuna consumption has increased in most parts of the world.
(C) Tuna that is treated with carbon monoxide provides no visible indication when it has spoiled to the point that it can cause food poisoning.
(D) Treating tuna with carbon monoxide is the only way to keep it from turning brown as it ages.
(E) Most consumers strongly prefer tuna that is not brown because they believe that brown tuna is not fresh.

Question type: Resolve the paradox

Argument: Treating Tuna with carbon monoxide is not harmful but will result in sickness.

(A) Workers in fish processing plants can be sickened by exposure to carbon monoxide if the appropriate safety procedures are not followed at those plants. - Irrelevant. We are concerned about sickness resulting from the consumption of Tuna.

(B) Over the last several years, tuna consumption has increased in most parts of the world. - Out of context. Too generic and we are not worried about what happened over the last several years. We are worried about people getting sick.

(C) Tuna that is treated with carbon monoxide provides no visible indication when it has spoiled to the point that it can cause food poisoning. - Correct.

(D) Treating tuna with carbon monoxide is the only way to keep it from turning brown as it ages. - Irrelevant. Same as A.

(E) Most consumers strongly prefer tuna that is not brown because they believe that brown tuna is not fresh. - Irrelevant.
