Another vote for B.

Try to rephrase each choice according to the structure of "Most drivers think they can tell when they are about to fall asleep, but they cannot."

You can rephrase for choice A, C, D and E. But not B.
A: Most people think they can tell when they are too drunk to drive, but they cannot
C: Most industrial workers think they know when they should stop working, but they cannot.
D: Most people who have just donated blood think they can tell when they are ready to walk out, but they cannot.
E: Most people who are being treated for schizophrenia think they can tell when they can halt their medical treatments, but they cannot.

Can you do that with B?

First, thanks Ravi for this post. IMO B.

Second, it is definitly a Main Point Question and not a FLAW one. Read the question stem - Each of the following illustrates the principle that the passage illustrates.

When ppl are having some effect of some cause then they show behavioral changes in stimuly and concentration. ppl are poor in this selfawreness.

So, it follows some action is taken on/by ppl and some judgement on doing something is then asked. We need to check this logic. Now, lets check the choices:

(A) People who have been drinking alcohol are not good judges of whether they are too drunk to drive. [Show behavioral changes in stimuly and concentration - Yes]
(B) Elementary school students who dislike arithmetic are not good judges of whether multiplication tables should be included in the school’s curriculum. [Show behavioral changes in stimuly and concentration - No]
(C) Industrial workers who have just been exposed to noxious fumes are not good judges of whether they should keep working. [Show behavioral changes in stimuly and concentration - Yes]
(D) People who have just donated blood and have become faint are not good judges of whether they are ready to walk out of the facility. [Show behavioral changes in stimuly and concentration - Yes]
(E) People who are being treated for schizophrenia are not good judges of whether they should continue their medical treatments. [Show behavioral changes in stimuly and concentration - Yes]

thanks for your explanation. i was convinved with C till i came across your explanation.
