### HideShow timer Statistics

Someone who gets sick from eating a meal will often develop a strong distaste for the one food in the meal that had the most distinctive flavor, whether or not that food caused the sickness. This phenomenon explains why children are especially likely to develop strong aversions to some foods.
Which one of the following, if true, provides the strongest support for the explanation?
(A) Children are more likely than adults to be given meals composed of foods lacking especially distinctive flavors.
(B) Children are less likely than adults to see a connection between their health and the foods they eat.
(C) Children tend to have more acute taste and to become sick more often than adults do.
(D) Children typically recover more slowly than adults do from sickness caused by food.
(E) Children are more likely than are adults to refuse to eat unfamiliar foods.

Must be C...

A and B weaken the argument.

D and E out of scope....

They have acute taste, become sick often and therefore more likely to develop aversion for some foods. "More likely" is the key word.

(D) Children typically recover more slowly than adults do from sickness caused by food.
(E) Children are more likely than are adults to refuse to eat unfamiliar foods.

One more for C - acute tastes is the give away

Negating C,brings down the conclusion of why children will develop aversion to eat some foods. An assumption answer option.
