Some medical colleges have recently extended the duration of a medical education by adding a research project to the other tasks medical students must complete. These schools maintain that this alteration is a response to requests from the public for more thoroughly educated doctors, rather than an attempt to generate more income from tuition. Obviously, their claim is inaccurate. If it were true, medical schools would use the more modern patient-based learning format, which produces more thoroughly trained doctors than do research projects.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument against the medical colleges?

A) When medical colleges first started encouraging research projects, the projects were of longer duration than the projects suggested currently.
B) Medical colleges have said they will not eliminate the research project requirement unless they can find a way to compensate for the loss of revenue that would result from this elimination.
C) Many prospective medical students have expressed interest in courses using patient-based learning.
D) The public has no clear understanding of what is necessary to train a medical doctor thoroughly.
E) Research projects cannot be legitimately compared to course formats, either patient-based or otherwise.

conclusion of this argument is that the claim of medical colleges is inaccurate...that Medical Colleges do not want to improve the quality of doctors but are concerned about their monetary advantages. Option B clearly assists the "cunning :-D " intention of Medical Colleges, hence the answer!!

*The research project is an attempt to gain tuition, not to produce more educated doctors. A claim that would strengthen this argument emphasizes economically driven motivation over concerns regarding education.

A) When medical colleges first started encouraging research projects, the projects were of longer duration than the projects suggested currently.
-Providing the length of the project (or changes to it) doesn't address the reasoning behind having them.
B) Medical colleges have said they will not eliminate the research project requirement unless they can find a way to compensate for the loss of revenue that would result from this elimination.
-Since they won't eliminate the projects without a means of financial compensation, the projects are an important revenue source.
C) Many prospective medical students have expressed interest in courses using patient-based learning.
- This claim is not related to the incentives of medical schools.
D) The public has no clear understanding of what is necessary to train a medical doctor thoroughly.
-This claim is not related to the incentives of medical schools.
E) Research projects cannot be legitimately compared to course formats, either patient-based or otherwise.
-This claim is not related to the incentives of medical schools.
