Sam: Statistics show that hospital patients who have no health insurance generally get fewer diagnostic procedures and leave the hospital sooner than do patients who are insured. People without insurance are obviously not being cared for properly.

Dan: On the contrary, what your statistics show is that people insist on sorts of unnecessary procedures when they know that someone else is footing the bill.

Which of the following best describes Dan's response to Sam?

A. He denies the truth of Sam's statistical evidence.
B. He shows that Sam's argument is based on a logical fallacy.
C. He provided counter evidence that contradicts that cited by Sam.
D. He shows that Sam's argument is biased because of an unfair preconception.
E. He provides an alternative explanation for the facts cited by Sam.
